Brake light could be low fluid or E brake handle not fully released. Brake,ABS,and VSC light on, Most likely the ABS module or pump has died. ABS and VSC lights on, could be transmission problems. Best to have the codes read.

    I already changed it sir both pads and rotor...but still it appears....

    Excessive pedal travel is from worn pads/shoes, air in the brake system or the master cylinder is wearing out. You never said year make and model, plus never gave any codes.

Hello, welcome to Fixya!

The ABS and brake lights on your dash board is cause by low brake fluid/oil level. When the brake fluid/level of your vehicle is low, the ABS light and brake light will appear on your dash board, indicating that it needs to be checked.

So open your bonnet and check the brake fluid/oil and make sure it is not low. The brake fluid/oil is the first that needs to be checked in a situation like this.

If the above appears not to be the problem, please let me know.
