When the vehicle goes to the mechanic they will have to perform a diagnostic charge. the fee will likely be around $100. If these lights occurred at the same time then there is one issue and as a default It is normal for these 3 lights to come on together, the BRAKE ABS and traction control warning lights. At that point the most common cause would be an issue with a wheel speed sensor commonly referred to as an abs sensor, there is one in each wheel. total repair likely to be a few hundred dollars. Without more information such as trouble codes present in the computer it would be impossible to give a further diagnosis but more expensive problems could certainly exist.
