Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are dozens of things that will turn these warning lights on. These warnings display when the engine controller sees a failure in a monitored component and sets a fault code. The problem could be anything from spark plugs and coils to injectors, the catalytic converter, an evaporative emissions system issue, any engine sensor, a transmission related problem; literally anything in the powertrain will turn the warning lights on.

The first step in diagnosing the problem will be to use a scan tool or code reader to see what fault codes have set and then testing can be done from there.
