Seems like the dealer is incorrect and is misinforming you about the warranty for the 2013 Toyota Prado:
www3.toyota.com.au/prado/features/ownership/car-warranty = 3 year/ 100,000km car warranty

Since the vehicle is still under the new car warranty, recommend to return it to the dealership for their repairs at no cost to yourself.

Several possibilities; ABS sensor, fuses, brake switch, zero point on the steering angle sensor is out of range. Possible cause is a knock to the front wheels putting them out of alignment, i.e. may need wheel alignment.

As the systems are one in the same (Track Control works via ABS system), it can only be one of two things, faulty sensor or faulty module. What is the cause of the fault is any ones guess, as it could be something simple like blown fuse, to something critical like replacement of module. First thing I would do is check the fuse.
