Hi,Fraser,the check engine light is the cause for the other lamps to illuminate,the traction control S-drive and cruise control will not operate when the check engine lamp because these features require inputs from the engine computer so these lamp illuminate.The code for the check engine light must be read with a code reader I cannot tell what code is causing the light to come on there are literally hundreds but as long as the check engine light is not flashing the vehicle is safe to drive no worries, if you can get the code I can help you diagnose it further.You may also disconnect battery to erase it to see if it comes back right away,thanks for your time.
