asked by on

After jump starting my girlfriends car the temperature was -20 degree celcius my trucks started beeping and said "service brake system" and the ABS and Parking break lights are lit up as well and now and won't go off. We just serviced the breaks 5000km ago as well. I've checked fluids, and wear on the breaks. they were not lit up before jumping her car. what happened? did the battery cause it?

My car has 122000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
