    Did they come as soon as you started the car or after a period of driving

    Ignore them they come on all the time for no reason. Probably you have been driving hard at some point recently ? They will disappear after around three start ups .

    Could just be a little glitch and be fine the next time its started.

    Might be a wheel speed sensor playing up or brake light switch.

    Best way of finding out actual fault is a star test.

    Have you tried restarting the car to see if they have gone out now.

    Just to add. ESP is not functioning so the rear tyres will spin up

    Also the brakes don't feel as sharp

    I would test over the next few days and see if it comes back on at all.

    But would still get it plugged in and get the fault codes read as it wouldnt of come on for no reason, it would have picked up a fault.

    It may have been a glitch but it could be early signs of a component failure and at least you would have an idea of what it could be and possible costs incurred

    If the warning lights are on then the systems such as esp wont work as it has detected a fault and shut the system down as it doesnt know what is going on.

    It is the equivalent of putting the car in dyno mode
