ABS, TC, and Check Charge System

Asked by Apr 10, 2017 at 11:35 PM about the 2006 Chevrolet HHR LT FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was in the Mcdonalds drive thru before going to a friends house and I came
out of park to pull forward and the ABS and TC lights came on followed
quickly by CHECK CHARGE SYSTEM. I made it to my friends house with just
the last message on and when I shut off my car I couldn't turn it on again. We
jumped it and when I came home I stopped at my gate to my housing and the
same thing happened but CHECK CHARGE SYSTEM came on when I parked
in my spot. Also after the jump when I revved the engine there was a whine
that started kind of high and died down after a bit and I noticed it every time I
accelerated on the way home. Any ideas? I'm no good with cars... (I wanna
say it's an LT but could be wrong)

I would recommend checking your brake fluid as weird as that sounds. Had my ABS and TC light come on when i left my Brake fluid cap off one time. Otherwise maybe the transmission fluid given the whine.
