Randomly my car listed above Type S front dash lights came on and I am hoping someone can give me ideas on what this could be an a rough estimate price rage.
Check engine light stays on.
At a certain speed both VSA lights go on and stay on until I restart car but once it hits 40 or above they come back.
Also, my brake light randomly turns on but will shut off when you brake to stop, but as soon as you begin accelerating it will pop back on.
What is happening?
Do you
have the same problem?

It sounds like for the brake warning light you are low on brake fluid which probably means you need front brakes. Here is a guide to help you see what you are in for when doing the job:

next we need to run the codes to see whats wrong there this guide will help us do that.

You can get a code reader for $20.00 on Amazon. Please run down these guides and report back.

Okay, can you check the brake fluid level to rule out that being the problem also can you run the codes for the check engine light I want to see if the two are related. The brake warning light is the red "Brake" light on the dash correct?
