Interesting problem, especially since its been happening since the car was new. Researching this I found one suggestion that a front wheel bearing is in backwards, and this causes the ABS wheel sensor to read incorrectly until the TCL/ABS computers calibrate themselves.

This is an odd suggestion, as the wheel bearing and hub are an integral assembly. A part photo shows a "normal" looking bearing that only fits one way. A bearing installation problem is not impossible however. There could be dirt/road debris on the sensor, the sensor could be slightly misplaced, or faulty. The TCL/ABS computers read the signals from the wheel sensors, and has diagnostic outputs, which should include indications of poor or missing data streams from all four wheel sensors.

This is the first step to finding a solution. If the TCL/ABS computers are reporting errors from one wheel, then that wheel has to be disassembled to see what's the cause.

Both fuel pump relays probably are plugged into the junction block.

If the sensor didn't fix the problem, then it's most likely a wiring harness issue. A bad sensor/harness will turn off the ABS & traction control and turn on both ABS and Traction lights. time to troubleshoot the wiring harness for continuity/short between the sensor and the computer.

next time take it to a accredited professional shop that will read the fault codes first before advising you on what has to be replaced and not just guessing the problem

Check the brushes on the blower motor that circulates the air in the car.

What was the code number? Could a circuit code. Could be no sensor return code. Problems would be sensor, wiring, PCM, or broken cam/crank belt.

Have you checked the fuel pressure, are you sure the pump is the issue? Have you run a fault code test on the engine control unit for fault codes? If not do that.

compression test cyclinder may have cracked head or warped head .I think that car has an Astron motor from my memory which has an alloy head that can warp or crack if the engine has been overheated ?

It is integrated in your entire electrical system of your vehicle. the only way to bypass is to get an aftermarket alarm with a bypass module which will require an additional ignition key (which is inserted into the bypass module).
