1995 Honda Civic Lx Battery Light and ABS light On.?

I recently just got a new battery, alternator about 3 to 4 months ago and now my battery light is on and ABS is also... If this would help i drove out in a snowy storm this morning and when i went to start my car again those two lights came on. So if anybody knows anything your help would be appreciated thanks

    ABS system is showing a fault code that needs a mechanic to check or you could try flushing the brake system, but not know the cause I would get a mechanic to check. If battery is good could be in charging system you need to check this. You can buy an inexpensive diagnostic tool that plugs into the power outlet or cig. lighter that could help you. Also make sure all the battery connections are clean.

    ABS stands for air bag system. try disconecting battery cables for 5 min. somtimes this helps reset the computer. if that does not work ,have ur battery tested free at any auto zone or have the shop or store u bought it at test it. if it comes back ok ,then it sounds like u have a short in ur wireing system some where and a dianogstics test will need to be done .

    If you or your mechanic didn't tighten the adjust bolt to the proper torque specifications for the alternator then the belt may have loosened or come off completely.

    If your belt is not fitted properly around your alternator pulley, the battery light will come on indicating an issue surrounding your alternator. Inspect your alternator belt.
