    You have a faults in your computerized stability controls which include the brake system as well. This needs to be scanned and repaired by a shop that is savy to this kind of problem. When the light or lights are on, the system is in a back-up mode .
    have this looked at ASAP Good Luck!

    It could be either an electrical/electronic problem, a physical problem or both. These are both electro-mechanical systems that are managed by 1 or more computers.

    also may need vdc reprogramed if code for the delta sensor is stored

    low brake fluid . top off the master cylinder. probably low due to normal pad wear . may want to have checked for leaks but leaks are very unlikely. may also need vdc reprogramed if a code for the delta sensor is stored

    I know this sounds dumb but check your brake fluid level. I put a couple ounces in and all those problems went away.

    All 3 of those lights came on in our infiniti yesterday also. We added a few ounces of brake fluid and all those lights turned off! Good luck!

    This has happened to me. I thought I was in for some extensive expensive reapirs, turns out I just needed new break pads.
