Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

These lights are on because the ABS module has seen a problem in a monitored component that will prevent proper operation of the ABS system and has set a fault code.

There are many possible causes for these lights. The problem may be with the module itself, hydraulic control unit and pump motor, the brake switch, steering angle sensor, wiring, and wheel speed sensors. One of the most common causes of an ABS light is a failed wheel speed sensor.

The first step in diagnosing the problem will be to use a scan tool to see what fault codes have set in the ABS module and then testing will be done from there based on what has set.
