all the lights on my dash board have come on
Why would this happen?

Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you

most likely due to low voltage caused by a weak battery or bad alternator

it is also possible that one of the vehicle's control modules or sensors has gone offline and taken other systems offline as well - all of the warnings you've mentioned could be caused by an abs/traction control system failure

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
