Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. You need to get the car scanned for diagnostic trouble codes. This could be something as small as a loose gas cap. Have you just bought fuel before the lights came on?

Perhaps 2 days before? Please go and see if the cap is as tight as it can be. Thanks
