Hey how are you

we will need a factory scanner or Equivalent to retrieve the fault code so we can be accurate on why it causing the warming lights to come on

now usually the AF oxygen sensor will be the issue when it warms up if it is driving good but lights on , but if you take it to local parts store they will scan it for free and post me the fault codes and i can help you further

the issue is if the engine is malfunctioning it will make the ABS VSC off line until fixed ,u still have brakes, now each time u turn switchh off back to on it will reset until the computer sees fault again

now also the abs system could be malfunction causing the lights to come on , so engine control module & abs module needs scaned to know for sure and be accurate and not throwing parts at it
