take the alternator off and have it tested at the auto parts store, this is more than likely your problem....
if it is good, then you need ot check your fuel injectors....

SOURCE: abs light stays on
I had this exact same problem, on a older bronco II. You need to get the ABS computer reset. You can either take it in or buy a computer your self. There are even packages that will allow you to use your own computer and just hook the car up to your lap top or desk top if you can get a cable long enough.
I never had mine done, because back then the computers were so expensive. I never caused a problem because it was only in the braking system. Now they are pretty cheap and there are a lot of other cool things you can do with them. You can reduce your gas requirements and set it for pulling, racing, and fuel efficency on the fly now. Just at the touch of a button.

im assuming that would be your voltage regulator and wen that is missing your battery will not charge, it can also cause problems elswhere in the vehicle ny not delivering the right voltage, which could be why the drive control light keeps comin on

If only your brake light in middle of rear window works then your other bulbs are bad. If brake lights all work in the back than bulbs are good. If you put turn signal on right or left and the bulbs light in front and back then you need to change multifunction light control box under dash. My understanding is it cost $600 new. So I would try used.
