Well since the lights are controlled by the OBD (on board diagnostics), you'll have to reset it. You may be able to do this by simply disconnecting the battery for a few hours. However, a lot of newer vehicles have electronically locked radios which require the manual to be able to be re-enabled.
I'd check out the radio before disconnecting the battery.
The only other ways are to physically disconnect the lights in the dash or get someone with an OBD reader to clear the codes.

Sounds like the sensor is tripped due to low pressure in the compressor you have to get the unit charged and the light will go off. Or take it to a auto parts store and have them put their diagnostic code reader on their and have them clear the codes this may fix it as well

Replacing brakes will not shut the abs light off. You have either a bad sensor or accumulated dirt on a sensor. There's a sensor for each wheel so you have to either pull a code or visually see which sensor is bad, craced, chiped, etc, then change. As for the CE light, go to auto zone and they'll hook it up and tell you why it's on. You have to use a scanner to find out.

WELL THERE IS A DIFFERANCE BETWEEN A SCAN TOOL AND A TOOL THAT IS CAPABLE OF OUTPUT CONTROLS SUCH AS THIS ONE A SCAN TOOL CAN BE BOUGHT FOR LITTLE MONEY ONE CAPABLE OF DOING WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IS MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE SNAP ON BRICK IS AN OLDER ONE WHICH WOULD WORK BUT EVEN THAT IS ABOUT $600 SO IT SUCKS BUT THE DEALER IS GONNA BE YOUR BEST BET HOPE THIS HELPS

If the Airbag light is on, it indicates that a electronic fault is stored in the memory for the airbag. You will need to have a diagnostic check done to pinpoint what the fault is, have it sorted out and only then can the fault be cleared so the light will go off. The ABS light also indicates a fault on the electronic side of the braking system. If the light comes on as you start the vehicle this indicates that there is an open circuit in the wiring or that the ABS control unit itself is faulty. If the light only comes on once the vehicle is in motion, this indicates that a wheel speed sender is incorrectly fitted or dirty and not sensing the ABS Rotor on one of the wheels. If a CV joint has been replaced, the joint may not have an ABS ring fitted on it.[front] At the rear the ABS pick up is fitted on the inside of the brake discs and must be fitted to the new disc when replacing discs.

The ability of the control modules to communicate through the serial data circuit.
The identification of any stored diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and their status.
The use of the Diagnostic System Check will identify the correct procedure for diagnosing the system and where the procedure is located.
Diagnostic System Check - Engine Electrical
The numbers below refer to the step numbers on the diagnostic table.
Lack of communication may be due to a partial malfunction of the class 2 serial data circuit or due to a total malfunction of the class 2 serial data circuit. The specified procedure will determine the particular condition.
The symptom list in Symptoms will determine the correct diagnostic procedure to use.
The presence of DTCs which begin with "U" indicate some other module is not communicating. The specified procedure will compile all the available information before tests are performed.
Did you perform the Battery Inspection/Test?
Go to Step 2
Go to Battery Inspection/Test
Install a scan tool.
Does the scan tool power up?
Go to Step 4
Go to Scan Tool Does Not Power Up in Data Link Communications
Important: The engine may start during the following step. Turn OFF the engine as soon as you have observed the Crank power mode.
Access the Class 2 Power Mode in the Diagnostic Circuit Check on the scan tool.
Rotate the ignition switch through all positions while observing the Class 2 Power Mode on the Scan Tool. Refer to the Serial Data Power Mode table within the Body Control System Description and Operation in Body Control System for a list of the power mode states that correspond to each ignition switch position.
Does the Class 2 Power Mode parameter reading match the ignition switch position for all the selected positions?
Go to Step 4
Go to Power Mode Mismatch in Body Control System
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Attempt to communicate with each module on the class 2 serial data circuit:
• The body control module (BCM)
• The driver information center (DIC)
• The instrument panel cluster (IPC)
• The powertrain control module (PCM)
Does the scan tool communicate with any module on the class 2 serial data circuit?
Go to Step 5
Go to Scan Tool Does Not Communicate with Class 2 Device in Data Link Communications
Select the Display DTCs function for each module. If using a Tech 2, use the Class 2 DTC Check feature in order to determine which modules have DTCs set.
Record all of the displayed DTCs the DTC status and the module which set the DTC.
Does the scan tool display any DTCs?
Go to Step 6
Go to Symptoms - Engine Electrical
Does the scan tool display any DTC beginning with "U"?
Go to Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) List in Data Link Communications
Go to Step 7
Does the scan tool display any DTC beginning with "B"?
Go to Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) List in Body Control Systems
Go to Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC)
