    Brake light comes on while driving, and weird combo of dash lights come on

    Ok so I own a 2008 subaru impreza.... Now out of no where my Park brake light on the dash comes on, also last when every time i hit a speed bump my ABS, Incline assist, and traction control lights came on as well. Im not sure whats wrong with it and I dont wanna take it to the dealer because I am out of a job and have no money so if this can be fixed on my own I want to do it. Any ideas guys?

    Sounds like a loose contact or electical fault. Just to be safe, check the brake fluid level and if it's OK drive it to the dealer, since the car is under warranty and the repair should be free.

    Same thing on my 2008 WRX

    Same thing happens on my 2008 WRX; just purchased it with 36k, and about 3 times now, when I hit a bump, the same 3 lights (ABS, traction, hill-hold assist) come on... I can restart the car and they will remain off... anyone else have this problem? Any ideas?

    Have you checked the brake fluid as suggested?

    This was happening to my 09 for a while... A reflash from the dealership solved the issue... Not sure if it was related or not... But they reflashed about a year ago and i have not seen the issue come back since...
