Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Justanswer. Thank you for your question and I will assist you with your concern.

You can reset the system by disconnecting the negative battery cable which will clear the system. If after doing this and the lights return then this means the system is seeing a fault and when this happens the computer will set and store a fault code and or codes. In order to determine what is failing after the reset if the lights return the system will need to be scanned and the fault code and or codes retrieved and those would need to be addressed from there. Try a reset first. If the lights do not return then you should be okay.
