Check the level to make sure it is up to the max line. It could be many reasons for the brakes to be doing that. Pads, Rotors, calipers etc. start by checking the fluid. For Brakes you definitely want an expert to check. some smaller shops might check it for you if you ask them.

Most likely the ABS light is on because of a bad hub bearing assembly. The ABS wheel sensors are incorporated in the hub assembly. They're troublesome. To find out exactly what is going on you'll need to have the ABS computer scanned. Same deal with the check engine light. Most auto parts stores will scan the computer for free. Post the trouble codes from the scan here and we can help further. HTH. -Jim
