Hi,does the vehicle drive normally besides the warning lights coming on?Believe it or not this could be something as simple as a loose fuel cap,all the warning lights are on to alert you that these systems will not operate until the check engine light concern is taken care of,the reason being the brake computers depend on communication from the engine control module .Most auto parts stores will read the codes for free for their customers if you can tell me what the code is I can help more ,thanks
