All 2012 and newer vehicles are required to have stability control, so they also have ABS and traction control. Many older cars also have some or all of those features. The ABS light (usually yellow, amber or orange) should come on briefly every time you start your car as part of a system check. If the light stays on, that means something isn't working and the system has been shut down.
Your Cars Alternator. The cars alternator generates electricity which is employed to preserve battery storage charge and to lend a hand in operating the entire the electrical accessories, which includes the ignition and the engine control systems. The cars alternator is belt-driven by the engine and creates an alternating current which is transformed to twelve volts direct current by means of the rectifiers or diode bridge. In contradiction to popular idea, an alternator does not continuously generate electricity. It sequences on and off at the same time as demand goes up and down.
