That happened to me a couple of years ago. Turned out to be the fluid level sensor on the brake fluid tank on the master cylinder. Unplug the sensor, it your lights go away thats it. New sensor is about $30. It plugs in and out of the tank. give it a good pull.....Good luck

Garage
Maybe just visually check your brake fluid level first. If it's low, brake fluid is cheaper than a sensor (never mind that it's more important to have fluid than a working level sensor).

Tried the sensor and the fluid but neither was the issue. Actually I got my engine deep cleaned and they used pressure gun to water clean and that messed it all up. Went to garage and the guy opened the abs and did some tweeks and fixed it finally. Cost nearly 85$ but worth it.

Thanks all you guys for your help.
