Car wont start without a jump all lights on dash are on it starts then dies right away on 97 olds achieva

Seems you may have more than one problem. A few questions you must answer first. If you have to jump it to start it,then your battery is dead are you have a draw draining the battery. Now if it dies right away look at your security light and see if it is on. Probably your security system is thinking someone stole the battery and shuts the fuel system down. Change the battery and Google the reset security system on 1997 Olds Achieva and you probably be set to go

Brake lightcame on and radio quit playing

If it is just your antilock break light that is on brakes will wor but without the convenience of ABS. The abs light may be on de to issues with wheel speed sensors/wheel bearings, problems with the ABS unit itself. You should have the system diagnose by a professional.

My ABS Master cylinder on my 1996 Oldsmobile Achieva SL has worn out and needs to be replaced. My owners manual says that this is beyond the scope of the average home mechanic and that special tools are...

Some ABS systems can be bypassed.You'll have to get a mastercylinder from a simular GM sedan without ABS from a junk yard.Maybe a GM vehicle with same engine.Reconnect the brakelines the same way they were on the junk yard car and bleed the brakes.And some ABS sytems can be removed from the mastercylinder and the lines can be reconnected to the mastercylinder w/out the ABS unit.You may want to try this first.

Where is the radio fuse in a 1995 OLDS ACHIEVA?

In the underside of the dash, under the steering wheel (a bit left of where the column meets the dash). It should have a label saying "FUSES". You press it, than pull it open.

Engine light stays on, low coolant light stays on , recently had a plastic housing replaced that was leaking, it was linked to thermostat, tranmission coolant,heater ect. Had the thermostat replaced also. Level of coolant is fine, does't overheat anymore, but now the starter wants to spin a couple of times and then it starts. The car has no rust, would like to hang on to it

How to change warning light bulbs, 97 Buick Lesabre Ltd

bulbs do burn out, but the dash will have places that are not always used for all models. i.e. if your car doesn't have ABS that light will not be used. To replace the bulbs you will need to remove the instrument cluster from the dash. its not to hard to do yourself, two phillips screwdrivers and some patience

Your problem is not the ABS.  You could have a number of problems going on. Often when your pedal goes down you have a bad master cylinder that is not holding pressure. If your ABS light comes on irratically you probably have a bad wheel bearing. Grasp the top of your tire and push in and pull out on it, if there is any movement get it fixed immediately. ABS sensors are in your wheel bearing asssemblies, if the bearing is going out it will turn on your ABS light.  Your brake system in your car is the most important part of your car, don't skimp on them. They will save you.
