How do i know if it is the battery or alternator, if my 99 T&C dies after the battery light and other lights suddenly come on

It does not sound like your battary or alternator. BUT:
You take a 12 v0lt test meter and touch the Positive With tthe red probe and Neg with the black. Meter should read 12 to 14 volts .
Use this same method at the 2 wires coming out of the alternator with the engine running (Keep the cords clear) Push the probesw into the connector on each side. If car won't run remove both and take to your parts store for Free testing..

Sounds more like a short or serge to me.

Hope this helps. Best I can do with the info you gave. Mike

My battery light indicator went on I immediately went and purchased a new battery, well the light is still on and now when I slow down at stop signs is dies, it starts back up BUT what could it be now???

The battery light only comes on to tell you that the BATTERY IS DISCHARGING with the engine running. The usual CAUSE is the alternator or battery cable connections, NOT the battery itself.

I was going down the road to radio went off, lights went dim, and the rpm meter quite working. but the check engine light did not come on, but the brake and the batteery light, and srs light came on...

Did the engine stops?
Sounds like your battery died and the alternator stop charging the battery?
Did you try to restart the engine?
Give us more details please.
thanks for asking FixYa!

Battery light indicator went on initially, and power to vehicle eventually died out; with engine sputtering.

If your battery light indicator went on it indicates that the battery is not charging because of either a dying battery or alternator or both!
With the red battery indicator on, the battery will eventually drain out (especially if the alternator is faulty) to the point where it will not provide the required power to the car electrical system ... thus causing it to 'sputter' and eventually die out - a sure sign it that you cannot restart the motor due to a weak of flat battery!
Hope it helps you understand the possible problem!

What does it mean when the ABS light comes on?

It means that the ABS control module has detected a fault. 9 times out of 10 , this is because the ABS sensors are either dirty or out of adjustment (if they are not fixed sensors ) Take it to a workshop for them to check and clean the sensors. Hope that helps

I have 1998 Chevy Silverado with over 200,000 miles. One morning I started it up just fine, backed out of the drive way, and it just died. I turned the ignition to off, and turned it back on and parked it....

Check your battery terminals. They may be corroded or just loose. If you get it running again have the battery and charger tested at an Advance or Autozone.

Hope this helps.
