All of the warning lights for the brake system are on, parking brake is off, car brakes fine, the Advancetrac button doesn't seem to do anything, brake fluid is fine. This just started today. Any ideas?

How old is your battery?  These cars do strange things when battery voltage gets low,

That was going to be my question also drolds1. Ford products in general have issues with older batteries. Even my Mazdaspeed6 when the battery hit between 3-4 yrs old it checked ok but not "pristine" and it would do crazy crap with traction control, fuel cut, abs warnings... replace the battery... viola...perfecto.

battery is a year old, but when I lifted the positive boot I noticed a lot of corrosion, cleaned that off and see that the copper connector that connected all the positive leads was cracked. Will pick up another an install it, but would be surprised if that clears it. After the cleaning, I drove 30' down the street and the lights came back on. Thanks for the input.

I checked the battery voltage and found is was reading 12.5 volts, charged the battery, drove around the block, no lights. Will find out with more driving today if that was the problem. Suspect the cracked connector was not allowing the battery to fully charge. Hope that resolves this, thanks to all for the input, will post back the problem pops back up after I replace the battery connector.

Another thing to keep in mind:  Class D digital power amplifiers are highly efficient, but will act strange or even go into protect mode when voltage drops. 

 

(sorry for the off-topic post; I started reading from the bottom).
