My explorer is saying service rev and beeping. Then went solid. My abs light is on and a wrench light. Is it safe to drive

My car has 119714 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Without knowing what is causing the failures in different systems it would not be safe to say it is safe to drive. You need to have the ABS and other systems scanned to get failure codes and have those codes diagnosed by a mechanic like one from YourMechanic.
