My 2002 Toyota Sienna Symphony - When the van is first started the red brake light and the abs lights do not extinguish until I start driving. Then when I come to a stop the abs light flashes at 500mS on and 500mS off and then stops flashing when I start driving again. Additionally the Tire pressure light remains on (i assume that is also due to the abs system). Does this sound like the abs system or something more sinister?
