Ihad the same thing happen last night when I was dropping off my friend, I was stopped on a steep incline and I put on the e-brake and put the car in neutral and dropped the clutch and brake pedal, after a few second with my foot off the brake I get the same combo of lights you got, ABS, ASR with the STOP in the display...
Turned off the car, turned it back on and no more problems... I think it was just a hickup of some sort based on the position the car was in... No loss of braking and ABS was working fine (lots of snow here yessterday)..

Bump for any ideas...

Some crud in your wheel sensor for the ABS. OR your ABS module is getting ready to die.

Check your brake fluid level. Mine did the same thing a couple of times and was low around Thanksgiving. Topped it off and it has been okay for two months.

That could explain my issue because I was stopped on a very steep incline... the fluid could have fallen to the back of the resevoir and caused that issue...
Let us know RobsB if it helps!
Thanks Raaburt
