That's a pretty vague question: The focusing mechanism on most binocs is a spiral shaft with a follower - essentially a "jack screw". The threads may be stripped, or the follower may have slipped off the shaft. You can probably remove the end caps from the shaft and disassemble it to resolve. Be careful not to contaminate the lubricated sliding parts with dust/dirt while doing so...

My 24-105mm lens doesn't focus anymore. Neither auto focus or manual focus works. When I twist the focus ring nothing happens. I can't afford repair is this something I can fix?

I don't believe you can FIX it. Repairing cameras and lens is a quite specialized profession. Probably you can take it to repair but you say you can't afford.
So depending on your camera, you might sell it

My abs light on my 2004 ford focus has been on for 10 days now, before it would come on here and there but would go out usually after i shut off the car and put it back on now it comes on as soon as i

All your saying is you have no idea of the technology
that has been on all cars for the last 32 years

You know nothing about O BD Vehicle Systems that most people
do & no idea what to do when you start a car & any dash light stays
on or flashes

It pays to use the internet to learn those things & read an owners manual,any owners manual,doesn't have to be for your car

You check for codes or have a repair shop do so then diagnose the
system with a fault

It seem odd to me that you would use a car with any light on & only
go to the internet verse a repair shop are you not concerned about
what the issue might be

Vivitar 75-300mm lens

The Vivitar brand has been bought and sold quite a few times in the past 10 years.

KEH Camera has quite a few used Vivitar lenses listed on their website. They are priced very low, from just $4 to $49, so it's highly unlikely that the lens is worth repairing.
