3 lights on @ the same time:: help needed!

I was cruising @ normal speeds during the holidays and all of a sudden, three lights at the dashboard turned on. ABS, Dynamic traction control and tire pressure monitor system.
Engine seems to be running, all seems fine as i continued driving.
What does this mean when all of these 3 lights turn on @ the same time ?
I was able to drive home safely with all 3 lights on which was roughly around 50 kilometers long.
The BMW dealer is on holidays so no one was there to help me.
Somewhat disappointed as the car is a 2011 with only 7000 kilometers in the odometer.

Please advice and is this possible to continue driving ?

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like there is a fault with the traction control & ABS systems - or with a sensor. If you don't have individual wheel sensors, that would cause a fault with the TPM as well. I would make certain the tire pressures are correct and drive carefully until you can get to the dealer.

I think your ABS/DTC block/pump just took a dump. There have been a few of these threads before.

Here is a company that can repair them. BMW wants a small fortune for a new one.
