HelloCustomer
Thanks for choosing JustAnswer.
My name is Vladimir.
These warning lights mean that the Antilock Brake Controller has detected a problem within the ABS system.
It could be a faulty wheel speed sensor, wiring problem or other issue.
This system is supposed to be diagnosed with a scan tool.
When the ABS module turns the warning light on, it also stores the trouble code in its memory for a diagnostic purpose.
You should have your ABS module scanned , this is the only way to know what triggers the lights.
Some part stores do it at no charge, check it out.

Is the traction contol light on, connected to the ABS failure as well. and would it cause the service engine soon? Like i said the ABS, Brake, ABS and sService lights are on.

Hi!
The Traction Control light and the ABS warning light are related.
The ABS controller controls both the lights and if it detects a problem, it turns the lights on.
The Service Engine Soon light is not related to the ABS system.
This light is turned on by the Powertrain Control Module if it detects a problem within the engine or transmission control system.
