ABS and Brake light stays on

My 1996 Toyota landcruiser will not start so it was jump started. When it started, I noticed that the ABS and Brake lights were on. I also notice that the brakes were locked aand as such car could be driven.

What can I do.

Thanks

Jack the car up and see which wheels are locked up,open the bleeder port on the wheel that’s locked up,see if that frees it up.

Any possibility that the locked-up wheels are the rears and are locked-up due to a parking brake malfunction?

Have you determined why the battery in your Toyota became discharged? age of battery, parasitic draw? has this issue been resolved?

say that again. the car could, or could NOT be driven. what did you mean?
