DSC and 'Brake' lights came on during spirited driving

Was driving my wife's car recently and the DSC and 'Brake' lights came on on the dash cluster.

I checked the speed sensors by unplugging and replugging them and that didn't help.

The Peake tool won't reset the lights either.

A 'plausibility' code came up (I forget the exact code), which I was able to clear, but the lights are still lit.

I unplugged the battery for 10 minutes and it didn't help.

Any suggestions as to the cause and what I can do to fix it?

Thanks.
