if it sounds like it is shutting down @5 sec after keying off the ignition, it can be a drive by wire system. while running, the abs lit light tells of a bad wheel sensor or brake problem, have it checked with the shop. it could even be a bad brake switch. if you can't afford a shop see what the diagnostic codes are by seeing parts shop that has a code reader.
