Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The engie light comes on when the powertrain control module sees a failure in a monitored component and sets a fault code. The reduced power warning will come on when there is an electronic throttle control related issue such as the throttle body itself, accelerator pedal position sensor or throttle position sensor.

The ABS light may or may not be related. If it did come on at the same time as the others then it will be related, if it came on separately then there is an unrelated ABS problem.

The first step in diagnosing the issues will be to use a scan tool or code reader to see what fault codes have set and then testing can be done from there based on the findings.
