Hello, my name is***** you for the question. Your service lights are now on due to the loss of battery voltage. Most of the time this is due to the battery cables on this vehicle. They have a tendency to have poor connections and will cause intermittent power such as this. I would start though by having the battery load tested just to make sure it is fine. If the battery is good then the battery cables should be replaced.
