What lights have come on?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
the park brake (goes from red to orange, and stays on orange after brake released), the 4x4 light (again stays orange), and the airbag warning light (stays orange).
They all came on together and have stayed on. I find it weird that they all started at the exact same time.

Oh and the lamp warning, but all lights are in perfect working order.
Expert:  Steve replied 6 months ago.
The brake and 4x4 lights are related. The others not. The only thing that would cause warning lights in multiple systems would be a voltage problem or failed control module. To verify he cause you will need to have voltage tested and the fault logs scanned from the car. Please let me know if you have further questions.
