ABS + Battery light on

Jumped into my daughter's 1997 Sunfire (2.2L, auto). Battery light is on and ABS light comes on after putting into gear. Confirmed bad alternator. I'll replace it Wednesday. If they are not related where do I start with the ABS light?

They shouldn't be related.

Actually, they were related. I let them go to school in it Monday and it died right in front of the school. I really thought they could make it each way (1 mile) for 2 days. I put the alternator in this morning and had my neighbor try to jump me. NOTHING. Not even a click when turning the ignition or a dome light. I took the battery to AutoZone and it took almost 3 hours to charge. Back in and no lights even after driving it for 15 minutes.

glad to hear you resolved it. With computer systems and sensors, if they dont see a full 12+ volts there is no way of knowing how they will react.
