Are you smelling the coolant smell from inside the car, or outside the car?

Do you have access to the vehicle right now? If so, start it up and put the heat on and let it reach operating temperature. If you can smell coolant coming out the vents, you have a bad heater core.

Your FCW and ABS lights are unrelated to this issue.
