Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

These lights have come on because the ABS module either isn't awake or it has seen a failure in the system and set a fault code. There are many things that will cause this ranging from the module itself, loss of power or ground to it, wheel speed sensors, the brake switch, the hydraulic control unit and pump motor, and wiring between any of the components. If the cruise control stopped working at the same time then odds are the problem is brake switch, speed sensor or module related.

The first step in diagnosing the problem will be to use a scan tool or code reader to first see if the module is communicating, and if so to see what fault codes have set. Testing will be done from there based on the findings.
