ABS brake light and low flat tire lights on

Hi guys, We've had tons of snow fall in these last couple of weeks, so I haven't been driving my bimmer until yesterday. While I was at work it snowed all day. I was driving home no problems until I hit a small hill two blocks from home. I couldn't get up the hill. Tires kept spinning. the tracksion control light came on. slowly I was able to go up the hill with the tires spinning. But then, my brake light, ABS light and low flat tire light came on. I finally made it up the hill and into my underground parking. The lights have remained on. How do I get rid of the lights or is there something wrong?

The traction control may have used the brakes a lot; that's rough on brake fluid. New brake fluid may help. As to the low tire pressure, all that action may have affected the sensor, unless of course a tire is actually low.
