Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The warning lights may be coming on just because the engine isn't running but they may be coming on due to a failure seen in the respective systems. A scan tool to check for fault codes, communication and monitor data may be needed to diagnose the problem.

If you have pushbutton start which requires the brake to be pressed then the only issue may be that the brake needs to be pressed harder. If the pedal was pressed a couple times with the engine off then the vacuum in the booster will be depleted and it will make the pedal harder to press enough to start the engine.

Do you have push button start?
