Concern - Two Out of the Triads Came On

So this morning as I turned on the car to go to work my BRAKE and 4X$ lights came on and stayed there. I turned off the car and turned it on back again and there they are again. Well, I backed up the car a little bit to get her out of the garage and turned the car off. Now the wife comes and sits in the car and I turned on the car the third time and bingo! No lights !! I bet she has more good karma than me.

Now I have read about the famous triads of lights that can lead to BIG $$$ repairs. In my case like I said I just had 2 lights that came on and not the "ABS" that came on so far. Anyone else who has experienced this before? Anything alarming??

My biggest issue is that the dealer is 190 miles away from me and not a BMW Indy shop in town either so only guess work is all I can do about the issue. Any help from you all would help!
