    Vehicle : Vauxhall

    Trim : very

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : Nosey

    ABS and Traction control lights suggest one of the following

    1) Wiring or plug problem
    2) module failure
    3) wheel speed sensor failure (integrated into the bearing)

    As for the battery, it might be the alternator is on the way out or an earthing fault. Get a voltage meter across the battery with the car running, it should be about 14v maybe a little less but at least 13v.
