Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
If the brake and ABS lights are on it is because the ABS module has seen a failure in the system and set a fault code. the first step in diagnosing the problem will be to use a scan tool to see what fault codes have set in the ABS module and go from there, electrical testing may need to be done.
If you're hearing a buzzing sound that is likely the ABS pump running constantly. The pump running constantly is usually caused by an internal failure of the ABS module.
