Hi,my name is mike and I will assist you with your question.
From what you are describing this is likely the abs pump itself that is causing this problem. I am also a warranty inspector and I have inspected this issue before and what happens is the pump electrically fails which causes the lights to come on and a constant draw on the battery. What I would suggest is having the abs pump checked as a next step.

how do you check abs pump and where is it located

Expert:  mike_a_mechanic replied 4 years ago.
The abs pump is located under the hood in the engine area,follow the brake lines from the master cylinder to the pump. You will need a diagnostic scan tool to test.
