Q: warning lights on 2004 BMW X3

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Three warning lights came on when I started the car; the automatic transmission, the yellow BRAKE, and the dynamic stability control. I drove it home, 5 miles, and the brakes grabbed but otherwise I did not have any issues. What is going on and how could three things go wrong at one time?

Had similar problem and took it to dealer. It was the low voltage. They charge the battery and did not have similar since.
