You may have bent one of the wheel sensors and is causeing the traction control to come on, and for the brake light is it amber or red? if it is red does the brakes feel spongy? if it does you have a mechanicl malfunction on the brake system. so the first thing to do is checks shoes and brake fluid level, als o be sure E brake is not slightly engaged, if you bleed the system this may fix the brake light problem but the whell sensor could be causing most of your problems causing it to brake going down hill, if the auto adjuster is not working this could casue it also, however be sure the brakes feels solid, take it out on a road with no traffic get it up to 20 miles an hour and slam on the brakes and come to a stop, put it in park and go outside and lok to see if the wheels all locked up and dragged at the same time if they did you are most likey ok, if one wheel did not lock up at the same time that will be the wheel you have a problem with, you will have to remove the drum or rotor if it's rear disk brakes to see what is causing the problem. Therse are the most common problems you will find and if you don't spot the trouble then you would have to jack the car up with all four wheels off the ground and have someoen push the pedal on the brakes in while you slowly turn one wheel at a time notice when the wheel stops anddo this to all four wheels. if you find one wheel not stopping then you have a mechanical problem with that wheel, it could be a bad adjuster or frozen adjuster or worn brakes or even a crakd drum ow a wheel cylinder froze up. Doing this will save you time if you have to take it to a shop as you will have isolated the problem. if lets say the rear wheels do not stop with the pedal all the way down it means you have a bad master cylinder. hope this helps and thanks for using fix-ya.

    Research the "3 Amigos" ... the three lights that come on are usually related to either wheel speed sensors, or the actual ABS module (stuck shuttle valve, etc)

Meaning of warning lights


Manufacturers spend billions of dollars a year refining their cars' on-board diagnostics systems. However, all of the sophisticated diagnostics in the world will do little good if you don't know what the warning lights mean.
Purpose
Modern automobiles have dozens of sensors to monitor engine, braking and chassis performance. Any deviation from the car's established limits will trigger a dashboard warning light.


Check Engine Light
Check engine lights can indicate failure of the emissions system, fuel injection system, faulty sensor feedback, overheating or lack of voltage, transmission failure, and engine knock ignition system failure.


Brake Lights
Almost all cars have two separate lights for the braking system: a red "ABS" (anti-lock braking system) light and "Brake Warning" light. The former indicates failure of the electronic anti-lock system, the latter a loss of fluid pressure in the brake system itself.


Dynamic Warnings
Many modern cars have traction or stability control systems that prevent and notify the driver of tire slippage. These lights can come in the form of amber "SLIP," "TC," or "TRACTION" lights (for spinning tires), or "ESC" (electronic stability control) lights for a sliding vehicle.


Safety Lights
Most cars have a diagrammatic warning that indicates a door that isn't all the way closed, a seat-belt warning light, and an "airbag disabled/enabled" light. Any or all of these will be red or amber.

I have a red warning light on the dash of my landrover disc.


It's the low coolant light. Just find the overflow bottle ( it'll be marked coolant). If it's not low then the sensor that goes to the bottle is bad and may need replacing.

2004 Landrover Freelander stop/reverse light fuse keeps blowing


I had a persistent problem of hill light warning and TCS warning lights coming on for no apparent reason. There is a wire connection between the stop light switch and the control unit to let the system know when brakes are being applied. Changing the stop light switch cured it. The replaced switch was certainly sticking and the new one was of a different design. Replaced it myself as switch comes with a wiring loom. Need to get on your back under the steering wheel! Not very expensive. My car 2001 TD4

Red light center of dash discovery 1999


You'll need to be a tad more specific, but if it's the ABS light and you have one saying TC in amber, and another one that looks like a little landie going down a hill, then you have an ABS fault. You may be able to drive it, but you may not have any ABS and may have a brake fault, so get it to a dealer for diagnostics.
