Question about 1993 Dodge Dakota
I can't imagine they are all related directly-the turn signal is probably a burned out bulb. The brake lights are controlled by a switch attached to the brake petal linkage and can be checked by getting down low enough to observe it's operation while you push the petal-you do not need to have the key on to check it, and it helps to have a spotter to watch the lights while you operate the petal and try to adjust the alignment/travel of the switch. 'Forgot headlights on"...? That's an odd one, you have a sensor, usually on the dash, maybe it needs to be cleaned, or your light switch may not be set properly for auto-on operation. The ABS sensor is located on top of the rear axle in the center of the carrier, and they are known for wearing out-you can crawl under the car and check the wiring and connector to it to see of that might be an issue. Most of the time people end up replacing the sensor.
With all that said, you should first get a digital volt meter and check the battery-voltage should be 12.5 or over when the vehicle has sat overnight, before starting. After starting it up, the battery should read close to 15 volts and slowly drop down to about 14.2 at idle. If you find this is not the case, it probably is responsible for many of your issues-bad electrical system (low/high voltage) causes lots of strange problems on modern cars.
