Hi, the problem most likely lies in the car's central computer or ABS sensor, but it can also be from something else in the brake or electrical system.
Disconnect the positive cable from the car battery, and then hold down on the brake pedal to drain the car's electrical system. This will reset the car's central computer. Plug the positive cable back to restore the power. Even if this doesn't totally reset the light, it should stay off for up to 1 week.
Change the ABS sensor if the light comes back on. Unscrew the housing for the sensor that is mounted to the wheel hub and unplug the wire, then attach and mount a new sensor. You might need to reset the computer again as described above.
Connect an OBD code reader to your car's on-board diagnostics system to determine any other causes of the brake light. Look for codes related to the brakes that appear on the reader, indicating any parts on the brakes that need repair or replacement.

These do not seem related to me.
For ABS and traction light, please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6003525-abs_traction_control_lights . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me.
for service engine, please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5932051-check_engine_light_check.
for frame, please explain the symptom you experience.

First this means you should not drive it until the repairs are done. Your brakes very well may not respond with both warning light indicators lit up. So one light is for your brakes and one is for your ABS system. The ABS light on means there is a malfunction in your ABS system. A sensor or something in the wiring. Now this light on alone indicates the need for a repair but the car could be driven temporarily. The ABS system makes your brakes fluctuate so "locking up" is avoided. The Oil light itself means something in your brake system is malfunctioning and hydraulic compression could be lost anytime. Both together is not good. I recommend first you check the brake fluid in your car. If it is below what it should be then this alone could set the Oil Light on. A brake light out could set your ABS light indicator on as well. So check the two things and if you are lucky this could fix each light. If not then you need to have this addressed by a auto technician as soon as possible.
