Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

These lights are coming on because the ABS module is seeing an issue somewhere in the system that will prevent proper operation and is setting a fault code. There are many possible causes for the lights coming on including wheel speed sensors, the ABS module itself, steering angle and yaw sensors, the hydraulic control unit and pump motor, and wiring between any of the component.

The first step in diagnosing the problem will be to use a scan tool or code reader to see what fault codes are setting and then testing can be done from there.
