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.
Testing a battery's performance and reserve (or amp-hour) capacity is not just a matter of seeing whether it will hold a charge (or checking the electric eye found on some batteries to see if it is green), so testing is best done by an auto technician at a repair shop. A professional can also determine if any problems you are having may be caused by something else, like your battery terminals or alternator. If a bad battery is the culprit, your mechanic will help you choose and install an appropriate replacement.
