Hello, thanks for posting

The main concern at this time is the check engine light, the other lights will turn on when the check engine light is on, these systems will remain inoperative until the check engine light is fixed, most check engine lights turn on due to an emission control system malfunction and may not affect driveability, if the truck is operating normally other than this then it may be a minor issue, the one thing that he can check right now is to make sure the gas cap is on tight, a loose gas cap is the most common cause for check engine lights with no other problems, to find out what exactly the problem is the computer has to be scanned for codes, most of the large auto parts stores do this for free, if this is possible please let me know what the trouble code numbers are and then I can offer some advice as to what needs to be done.
