Ok you have to find out what the codes are first. Then diagnose the issue before the lights will go out. They are on for a reason and resetting will not fix anything. The lights will come right back on.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!These warning lights will all go out on their own once the problems causing them are repaired. The engine light would most likely stay on for the first two times the car is driven after a repair, and if the repair was successful then the light would go out on it's own. The airbag and ABS lights come on when there is an active code and go out immediately when the problem is no longer present, so if these lights are on then there is an active problem.You can disconnect the battery to clear fault codes if you don't have a scan tool, but if the lights come back that is because there are still current failures causing them.
