Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

These warning lights are coming on because the ABS module is seeing an issue somewhere in the system and setting a fault coe. There are many possible causes for these lights ranging from the steering angle or yaw sensor, the brake switch, pump motor and hydraulic control unit, the ABS module itself, wiring, and wheel speed sensors.

The first step in diagnosing the problem will be to use a scan tool or code reader to see what codes have set and then testing would need to be done from there while the problem is happening. The codes will stay stored and the lights do not have to be on to check for fault codes.
