This is all electrical. Sounds like a fairly big job. Blinkers and ABS usually run from same fuse and therefore same wiring. Not sure of the 4x4 light. But Id say if you get a wiring diagram and folloe from the 3 items back there would be a common wore and id say in your case this wire is loose, or semi broken. However I think it would be less stress if you simply go to an auto electrician, Good luck, hope this helps.

If you are reseting a factory alarm...lock and unlock the drivers door with the key. If you don't know the code look under the dash driver side in left corner there should be a black cover with a sticker with a code on it 6 numbers that is the factory code.
