Default E46 abs, traction control, orange handbrake light

Hi lads, my brother bought the car over a year ago and didn't have any warning lights on it.

Only done a few hundred miles since he bought it and it's been parked outside the house and hasn't moved in a few months.

I own it now and trying to diagnose the problem. Ive taken out and cleaned all the abs sensors as I saw online this worked for a lad.

Any suggestions what might be causing it before I go buying an obd2 scanner?

Thanks lads 👍👍

if U like spending time cleaning sensors ,buy scanner ,read the faults, maybe they will tell u exact problem ,maybe no . it gonna be some pressure sensor faulty , or faulty ABS unit , which will need to be removed, send away for repair ,and refitted with brake fluid change and full system bleed .or exchange unit, but after will need to be coded to the car .so how far away U ready to go yourself ?
