Do this. Replace the fuel filter. Does not look to bad but will need the disconnect tool. Then go buy this, put it in, fill the tank, and see where you stand. All this can be bought at any auto parts store.

A '99 model has ABS, as the ABS light indicates when you turn key to the run position before starting. The idling issue you have may be just a dirty IAC and/or throttle body. Before you go replacing high cost parts like the pump try the less expensive fixes. First consider your car probably has over 100k on it. My bet is the IAC and throttle body have never been cleaned and its a simple job. A spray can of carb cleaner ($8) and about an hour should take care of both. Change the filter is it hasn't been done in awhile or if you don't know when it was last changed. Also, have the codes read just in case there is another fault with one of the sensors, free at most auto parts stores.

i would change the fuel filter first before getting into the pump or injectors ! after you change the filter then get a bottle of fuel injection cleaner for the tank !

Abs if fitted will illuminate as do other lights on dash before going out. Fuel filter is unlikely to be issue though new won't do any harm. Check idle speed control valve for sticking.
