Default ABS, TC, Brake and Down hill decent lights are all on also have a rattle coming front

Hi everyone, Im having a few problems. the brake light, TC light, ABS light and downhill decent light are all on. I also have a rattle coming from the front when the truck first starts to move. I have changed all pads and rotors as well as brake fluid and its been a day and all the lights are still on. Anyone have any ideas?I know the 3 amigos may be an issue but the brake light being lit up makes me wonder. I have a 03 Disco.

Thanks,
Aaron

from RAVE:

A red brake graphic (all except NAS vehicles) or red BRAKE legend (NAS vehicles), to warn of low brake fluid level, handbrake on and brake control system failure affecting EBD.


So fluid level is cheap to fix, ebrake switch may need adjustment, and that last one is not cheap. It is also not shown on the electrical schematic, but fluid level and ebrake switch do show up. Sheet attached on two switches, you can unplug fluid jug switch to see if light stays on because of the the other.

Some part of brake shield rubbing a cable, etc.? for noise when moving off? Or something rubbing a drive shaft?

Brake fluid switch appears to be good, I adjusted the e-brake so it only goes to 3 clicks and light still on. How do I adjust e-brake switch? The PDF did not say...

Did you read the link Buzz sent you, doesn't sound like it, that light can come on as part of a brake failure and with the 3 amigos on you have a failure in the works.
When do you plan to deal with the 3 amigos?

Mike i did read the link Buzz sent me, it was only one page with a picture so I do not really understand how to do it. Im doing the ABS mod fix option B this weekend and when the shuttle valves etc arrive I will take it apart again and do them. I checked Rave for the ebrake switch and didn't find it either. Am I looking in the wrong place? Im not a mechanic but as long as I do the research I find that I can do he job.

Did you also order replacement o-rings from Falcon Works?
Why don't you wait till you have all the parts, no since having to tear it apart twice, much less then have to bleed it twice.

Mike I guess you are right, Ill wait for the shuttle valve kit to arrive before I do the ABS rebuild. I hate waiting for parts to arrive, drives me crazy.
