I have a 1998 Range Rover HSE. The ABS, TC amd Brake light stay on and now I have noticed that it is becoming harder and harder to stop. It literally feels like I dont have any brakes at all. I have to pretty much push the brake petal all the eay down in order to get it to stop. I had the pads and rotors about 6 months ago and I don't know what to do! Help please

turn on your car and remove the ground cable from the battery, if the car dies it's time for a new alternator, if not take your battery in to be checked. The other message(traction control) may be just due to a faulty battery/alternator.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you remove the positive battery connector and let it sit for atleast 5mins. before reconnecting it. This will reset the system and can get rid of the fault codes. You may just have system failure and reconnecting the positive battery connector can resolve the problem. Be sure that the body grounds are tight as well specially the negative battery connector.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Tips for a great answer:
The IPC detects a loss of serial data communication with the EBCM
Traction Control System (TCS)
When drive wheel slip is noted while the brake is not applied, the EBCM will enter traction control mode.
The EBCM uses a 5-volt pulse-width modulated (PWM) signal to request the PCM to reduce the amount of torque to the drive wheels. The PCM reduces torque to the drive wheels by retarding spark timing and by commanding the throttle actuator control. The PCM uses a 5-volt PWM signal in order to report to the EBCM the amount of torque delivered to the drive wheels.
You would need a factory grade scan tool to check data PID's - parameter identification , all the sensors work within a specific voltage range 1- 5 volts an you can see this on a good scan tool !
The Traction control is part of the ABS system an there a several DTC possible
DTC B0827 DTC B0828 DTC B2745 DTC C0035 DTC C0035 or C0040 DTC C0040 DTC C0055 DTC C0110 DTC C0191 DTC C0201 DTC C0220-C0229 DTC C0240 or P0856 DTC C0244 or P1689 DTC C0245 DTC C0267 or C0268 and C067 or C068 DTC C0550 DTC C0899 DTC C0900
You best bet is to take it to a qualified repair shop !

this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating
that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of
lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected
a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM,
SRS, TPMS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You
must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool
and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for
