Check your brake fluid level...also check it out with a dealer
Had the same problem on my 2000 323i, which I sold on Sunday....
I think on page 117 (if I remember correctly), it tells you that when these three lights come on in conjunciton, it means that the traction control system has FAILED....
To fix it may require one of two things:
1 - If the fault is because of one of your 'WHEEL SPEED SENSORS', the problem is relatively easily fixed......$100 part and 1 hour dealership labor = $200 (depending on whether or not it is just one wheel speed sensor, 2 3 or all 4).
2 - It could be the abs control module, which is a $2-$3K fix (ouch)....
My lights used to come on and then go off, so the problem was rare.....I read on another forum that if the lights come-on-go-off, it COULD be that your wheel speed sensor is DIRTY, so cleaning it MAY help (although I'm not sure how to clean them). If you try cleaning and it doesn't work, then I would check with the dealer, who will suggest (1) or (2) from above.
Hope it works out,
