Check the wheel bearings.

I was wondering if that was the culprit


I think there is a bunch of air in the lines and needs a good power bleeding or you have a caliper piston hanging up or both. As far as the rear wheel it may be a completely different issue such as a dry wheel bearing. If it is get both replaced (rear) All of the above issue will and can cause all sorts of warning lights to come on. The wheel bearings send a magnetic signal to the wheel sensor or tone rings mounted on the cv shafts. E-brake cable if equipped may be corroded and either needs lubed up or a section of cable wiring replaced, perhaps a simple adjustment due to use. Hope this give you an idea of what it could be. Have a enjoyable weekend! Good Luck.
