2005 chevy trailblazer 4.2 engine. Was driving on interstate engine intermittently began to run rough similar to a miss. Then check engine light was blinking for a minute or two then went off and engine ran smooth. Problem reoccurred several times, then once off the interstate pulled up to a red light and engine at idle was very rough, changining between 500-650 rpms. Parked the vehicle for several hours then drove it again, ran smooth till engine warmed up then the rough idle began. The check engine light is off now.

Sounds like it is the EVAP and I think there is a TSB on this that the dealership should fix for you.

Abslight stays on. How to fix? This is a2007trailblazer?

First you need to have EBCM - electronic brake control module check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's . If the light is on there is a code stored . I think most part stores can do this and for free . After you find out what code is stored , looking up that code in service repair information for diagnostic trouble shooting chart would be next step . There are a few codes too.
DTC C0035 or C0040
DTC C0045 or C0050
DTC C0110
DTC C0131
DTC C0161
DTC C0186
DTC C0196
DTC C0201
DTC C0240
DTC C0241 or P0856
DTC C0244 or P1689
DTC C0245
DTC C0283
DTC C0287
DTC C0290 or C0292
DTC C0455
DTC C0550
DTC C0558

Find the code do the diagnostic's , fix the problem , wiring issue's , a sensor , bad module ,what ever it is . The light will go out then . Here is a sample of code discription .
• DTC C0035 Left Front Wheel Speed Sensor Circuit
• DTC C0040 Right Front Wheel Speed Sensor Circuit
