    Sounds like you have an ABS malfuction (could be as simple as a dirty wheel sensor) Get the car hooked up to diagnostics asap

    Given the ABS and TC light are on together it sounds like the module has failed
    Even with the ABS sensor not fitted correctly, you don't normally get a warning for that

    Be aware you will NOT have either ABS or TC, so drive accordingly until inspected and diagnosed by a mechanic
    Equally, this is a MoT failure point, so remember that in the VERY unlikely event your car is inspected at the roadside it could be issued with a prohibition notice
