Hello, my name is***** most common thing to cause these lights to come on is a failed wheel speed sensor which is about a $500 job to repair depending on where you go. Shop should connect scan tool to vehicle to get diagnostic codes which should specify which wheel speed sensor has failed. Let me know if you have more questions or if there is anything else I can do to help. Thanks.
