E39 ABS/DSC light on

So I drove my E39 to class today and everything was running fine, then went home got ready for work. While I was driving to work, I noticed that the ABS and DSC lights came on and my check engine light came on also. During my lunch break at work the lights weren't on until the end of my shift when the ABS and DSC lights turned on. I checked the fuse box for any problems and there wasn't anything wrong with the fuses (maybe I'm looking at them wrong, I don't know) Can anyone help me with this?

You might have a faulty DSC control unit

Codes being read would be the easiest, if it is your DSC and you decide to buy a used one or even a new one, a quick tip is to get the unit programmed for your car. if not it wont work properly

Faymester is on a distinguished road
like you guys even need DCS in socal

but rly, read the codes, the engine light, for ex, turns on for just about any issue - it's like the generic 'something not 100% factory correct' light
