Tons of BRAKE fault codes

Hey all, quick question. I just dropped my daughter off and backing down the driveway (incline) my dash lit up like a Christmas tree. All the bells and whistles went off.
some of the dash warnings were along the lines of
-check brake fluid level
-check brake system
-advancetrac system fault
-hill decent fault
and others, all somehow brake related.
the parking brake light came on, as well as a few other lights

I dropped my daughter off, came back, started, and they all came on again, I saw no fluid, and wanted to see if it was just a code glitch, I pulled out of the driveway and as soon as I got to the top, they all shut down and dash went back to normal. I breathed a sigh of relief. No problems until I came to the next street light 5-10 miles away, as soon as I went to take off, all the bells and whistles went off again, but, then again as soon as I got 1/4 mile down the road they all shut off again, and did not see them the rest of the drive.

I would THINK if there was really a big issue with the parking system it would not turn off for that long, only to come back for 30 seconds and come back. I would HOPE a parking/brake issue would be a high alert non stop warning.

Any ideas as to what could be loose? or if that's the case at all?

I really don't want to drive if it is a threat, but it appears to be a faulty alert somewhere. I am not very mechanically inclined, although my truck looks it, I am the promo, photo/video guy, I know just enough to get me in trouble..

Anyone? I topped the brake fluid off. It was a little low, and not seen the codes since, but still worried... Drives just fine...

Did you check your abs lines? Make sure the the tires or anything else has not stretched or hit the ABS lines or brake lines.
