Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

These lights coming on indicate a fault is detected with one of the vehicle stability sensors or components.This can be a failing wheel speed sensor or steering position sensor or possibly even a fault with a vehicle speed sensor issue.There are several other sensors and components in your model as well that can cause this fault here.

What has to be done from here is to have the fault codes read out/checked with a fully compatible scan tool that can plug in and can read all computers in your model.Once this is done any codes set then need diagnosed to locate the fault.The codes can be read out,diagnosed and repaired by any shop or dealer in most cases but they will charge a fee to do this.A local parts store can usually read out the fault codes at no charge to you.They wont be able to diagnose the fault but can give you an idea of what is at fault needing repaired or replaced for this issue here.

I do suspect this will be a speed sensor fault since it is also causing shifting issue.Getting the codes checked will help to locate which one and to see if anything else is the cause.

Until this is done though unless the sensor starts to operate properly on its own again the issues will continue.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
