Hello, my name is***** for the question. If I am not online when you return please give me some time to get back to you. Typically if these lights come on together it is because there is an ABS malfunction and that is causing the trailering system to shut down. Many times this is caused by a failing brake switch or a bad connection at the fuse box. If you have a voltage meter I can run you through some test to find this issue. Did it just start all of a sudden out of nowhere?
