My abs, brake and traction lights are on and was told i can reset them with my code

Unless you have a BMW-specific code reader, you can't turn those off. A generic code reader will not read ABS codes. Those three lights usually indicate a bad ABS module or bad wheel speed sensors. I would recommend getting the module rebuilt.
