If you hate the car and could afford another car and payment, go for it. I rather fix what I have, it's cheaper. From your symptoms, it does should like you need a new alternator and charge up your battery. The ABS light might be a dirty wheel sensor or a faulty one.

Abs light could even be from the alternator losing power and the module shutting down.
