According to the manual:



Check to see if the error code is the same using your BC.

It looks like a snapped ABS speed sensor

not sure what model you have but there is a list of abs sensors. seems pretty easy to replace. Get the code read, hopefully it says which sensor is bad

Get battery and alternator checked by auto parts store. Bad battery or alternator will cause a flurry of lights because these systems cannot run below a certain voltage.
