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 has been detected with one of the vehicles stability/traction control or engine components.There are several sensors and components that can act up and causes this fault here so what has to be done is to have the fault codes read out/checked using a fully compatible scan tool to see what codes are set.Once this is done any codes set then need to be diagnosed to then locate and repair this fault.

This can be done by any shop or dealer as they can read out and diagnose the codes as well as repair the fault for a fee.In some places a local parts store may read out the fault codes at no charge to you but usually cannot diagnose the fault but can give you an idea of what is at fault needing repaired or replaced.

But this has to be done to locate the cause of these lights so it can then be repaired,then the same scan tool used to clear out the codes that had set after the repair is done and this will then turn off these lights.
