help... diff lock, vdc off lights on why?

i was driving home today and all of a sudden my diff lock light came on steady, and the vdc off light came on . A little bit after the diff lock light went out and the abs and slip light came on w/ the vdc off light still on. the truck didnt do anything i didnt do anything and im not sure what to do. also when i first start the truck now it reapeats everything over again. i tried pushing the vdc off button it does nothing. and right when i start it i hit the diff lock button and it goes straight to the abs, slip and vdc off lights being on. im stumped. thanks ahead of time for the help.

Check connectors on the ABS sensors at the wheels. Try disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes. It will go through a BIT (built in test) and calibrate.

Near the brake calipers. Have you a service manual?

I cleaned the battery terminals on mine. The VDC light came on an was on for 20 miles. I disconnected the battery for over 20 minutes. I didnt even back out of the driveway and the VDC light went out.
Not saying that this is your problem but worth a try.

I had the same problem. The dealer said I had a bad "wheel angle sensor"
fixed under warranty.
