2001 S55 check engine, heavy steering, what is it?

This week I drove my 2001 S55 about 1500 miles, no problems. Today after I drove 50 miles, parked the car, and came back, I had a few things on:

In the side, the ABS light was on. On the left, the check engine light came on. In the dash, it said drive to workshop and had three screens show: Speedtronic, Brake assit/BAS, and ESP.

The steering also got heavier. The car runs and steers OK, just heavier.

What could it possibly be? I did a few searches, but am not completely sure I have it pinned down. Maybe a speed sensor or something like that? Anyone else had this problem, any idea on cost to fix?

I'm taking it down to get it looked at tomorrow, but just so I have some idea..thanks!
