When these warning lights come on together, it indicates a fault within the ABS / traction control system on the car as well as the transmission, which can be impacted by the ABS system. These lights are not specific and are only intended to inform the driver that a fault is present. There are MANY possible causes for these generic warnings as they are not intended to be specific or aid in trouble shooting / diagnostics in any way.. With that said, there are three very common things that cause these lights to come on together, a faulty wheel speed sensor, a failure within the ABS / traction control module itself or a failing alternator. .The good news is that when these lights come on, the car's computer logs a specific record of the problem. As such, you will need to have the fault memory read from the vehicle to determine exactly what your underlying issue is. If a wheel speed sensor is determined to be the problem, then you will need to replace that sensor (about $150).
If the module is determined to be the problem, then the module itself will need to be replaced or sent out to be fixed. Two good places that fix these are Module Masters and BBA Reman. You can find both on google. They charge a few hundred to repair one of these modules. Replacing the module with a new one will cost around a grand, so sending yours out to be rebuilt is the best option should the module turn out to be the failed component. If the alternator is the issue, it will need to be replaced. . Again, you will need to have the fault memory read from the vehicle to confirm 100%, but chances are the problem is either a wheel speed sensor or the abs/traction control module or alternator. A fault scan is the next/only step at this time.
Please be sure to drive carefully as you do not have ABS or traction control functionality on your vehicle if these lights are on.
