Fog and abs light stay on, causes car to stall

Every time I start my car my fog and abs warning lights stay on, if I try to drive my car loses all revs and stalls itself, it's worse if I put my lights on, it's also not always there it's every other time I start my car, found a fault in stereo and thought that fixed it but a few hours later it was back

Checking your alternator charging rate / output would be a good place to start as testing battery also if alternator at fault .

Forgot to add , may be more than one fault and a scan with Vag Com or similar may be best bet rather than guess .Could also check earth strap from engine to body .
