Need help ABS light on and Battery light on??

Im still pissed off to what happened to me today...

to make a long story short i took my lude today to smog it
and my friends dad took my lude to another smog place becuz it
had to be a specific test(SMOG CERTIFICATION TEST)

so he came back saying it didnt pass becuz either it wuz the timing, EGR, or
and O2 sensor...he checked my vaccum lines, unplugged and disconnected
cables under my dash on the passenger side and when he connected everything back together all my dash lights came on and stayed on...

eventually within a few mins. some came off and the ABS light and battery light stayed on...he took off again w/ my lude to his buddies shop came back and he said he had to calibrate my car???idk wtf he had to do that for...he wuz gonna take off again and so i ended up telling him i had to take off and take care of some stuff cuz i had been waiting for like 3 1/2 hrs already which i didnt expect it wuz gonna be that long and i wuz pissed off already cuz i was there for a long time, he hadnt smogged my car yet like a final run and he left my dash lights on...

he told me to stop by tomorrow when he opened so he can actually try to smog it and take my ABS light and battery light off...i dont feel like taking
it back to him cuz i havent paid him yet and i feel like he's messing w/ my car???i felt like whooping his ass...so i can get my anger out of me.

any suggestions, comments , anything would help!

sorry this story isnt short like i thought it would be...lol

Hey june bug some times preludes act funny ,but that's life ,back to topic did your car have a check engine light before inspection ?if not then you just have to disconnect the negative cable or the fuse for the radio this will reset the ecu .The issue with o2 sensor or egr should have gave a sign of bad fuel mlieage and sluggish respond and would triger check engine , you said that battery light abs are on ,i suspect the belt or alternator maybe failing ,question did they run the car on a dyno? ,because that would mess up ,sometime if the car hasn't had maintenance in a while just a thought .Make sure the alternator belt is tight ,that way the battery isn't strained ,because the ecu will need good juice to complete the power to all sensor and relays .

Hey bro thanx for the advice...i did check my altenator and my regulator was burnt out!
I guess the guy must of did something becuz my altenator wuz working just fine.

i took my car somewhere else to smog and this guy really helped...
the reason why it wasnt passing smog wuz becuz my catylic converter
wasnt heating above 450 degrees it wuz heating at 300. and my O2 sensor wasnt working anymore so it had to be replaced.

I ended up spending quite a few bucks but my car eventually got fixed.
Everything else on my car wuz working just fine and the other guy who messed it up wasnt looking at the right spots...

Its all good...
