ok

I would have the brakes checked. it sounds like the pads are worn out and grinding into the rotor. the metal from the grinding may have caused the abs light to come on as the sensor cannot read correctly. the other lights are on due to the abs issue. once the abs is resolved, repaired those systems will come back on line.

it sounds like you need brakes and rotors.
