    Default ABS and Handbrake light on simultaneously

    I am facing an issue with my 2008 Toyota Corolla GLi just today. I parked the car in the night and everything was fine. After and hour or so when I started the car again, ABS and hand break light both were illuminated simultaneously. I have checked the oil level and it was fine. If anyone has faced the same issue and got it resolved, please guide me how to deal with this issue.

    P.S. I had been driving in snow during the day. Due to slippage, my car was stuck in snow for some time. Don't know if this is the reason for this problem.

    Will appreciate any help.

    I had faced this issue on my vitz. And the cause was faulty abs unit. Swapped the unit and got bleading done and it got fine.
    If abs is acting all normal. Try cleaning "the two sensors" which are associated with the braking mechanism. Im not sure what sensors they are and where they are located but in most cases accumilationnof dirt/carbon on them causes the check lights to show.
