Well the abs and the brake lights were on quite a bit and was told ttheaccumulator was going bad so I bought a new one and that stopped them from coming on. What it was doing was whenever I came to a complete stop those lights would turn on or they would even stay on for about 5 mins after I started the car.

Yep, it's a good thing you replaced it otherwise you would have eventually burned up your pump. Have you tested your brakes to make sure the rear calipers are working properly? If the system is not pressure bled then the only brakes you have are the front. It may seem as if they are fine but trust me, the car will not stop at its full potential. According to the service manual the only way to properly bleed the system is with a pressure bleeder. I'm just trying to help.

I have an extra 1990 Toronado GM Maintenance manual I'd be happy to send your way for, say $5, plus shipping.
