ABS Problem and lights problem on 92 Sunbird

I have a 1992 Pontiac Sunbird SE, 3.1L V6. About 2 weeks ago I had a close encounter with a deer. I jumped on the breaks and all 4 wheels locked up. When I let off the break the "Anti-Lock" light on the dash lit up. It had never been lit up before this. However about a month ago the ABS had been unplugged for about a week, but I plugged it back in. I have been told that I simply need to reset the computer. Would that solve the problem of now having no ABS? Also since then the parking break light randomly turns on. I NEVER use the parking break and haven't once since I bought the car 4 years ago. It shuts off and stays off once I turn the car off and turn it back on but it will randomly appear on while driving. Could this have something to do with the ABS?

I also have a problem with the right front marker/signal lights. While the headlights are on the left turnsignal indacator stays on, and the two left front marker lights do not turn on, however when I put the signal light on they both turn on, but they blink simontaniously instead of one at a time. Could this simply be a realay or a fuse?

Any help would be appriciated. I've been having a slew of different problems with the car for the past month or so. It may be time for a new one lol.
Do you
have the same problem?

The ABS computer will turn on the red brake light if there is a issue with the base brake function of the vehicle. My guess is that the pistons inside the modulator are stuck and you now have no rear brakes. You need to have the codes pulled from the abs computer and it will help diagnos the issues.
