No...kind of at a loss without alot of knowledge,but good intentions and really broken at this time trying to hold on to my job ater just being out of work with an unusual case of pneumonia and little funds for car repairs and desparate for least expensive way to get myself back and forth to work until i can afford routine maintenance--till now my car has been very reliable!! Any advice very appreciated.

Ok the first thing you will need to do is check fuses located on the drivers side of the dash and the top side of the battery there is a fuse box there i think you may have a blown fuse since both lights are on you need to get this issue first also make you have oil in the engine and also charging voltage from the alternator to the battery because you will not make it to work if its more then a fuse. I hope this helps.
