Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the Check Engine, Service Engine Soon, ABS, VSC Or TC lights to tell you that there is a problem and you should have the car diagnosed and repaired. When there is a problem with the engine control system, any other systems that communicate with the engine control module (ECM) may turn on their indicator lights at the same time because a code has been stored in the ECM. I would take it to a service center you trust and let then come up with a solution. Sometimes a problem in one system will turn light on for other systems that communicate with it, but it doesn't mean there is a problem in those systems.
Please let me know if this information is helpful. Positive feedback is appreciated. Thank You!

Hello. Those three lights are all designed to illuminate when you have an issue with the electronic sensors on the engine. To properly identify the reason for the lights being on, you will need to get your vehicle hooked up to a scan-tool. AutoZone provides this service for free. Get the car scanned, and get the codes stored in the memory of the car's computer back to us for further assistance.

When you say malfunction indicator , do you mean `check engine`` light.
These paired lights can indicate a change in engine air flow and fuel mixture. Try a fresh tank of premium fuel, but first a unscrew and re-screw the gas cap until it ratchets into place. The lights can be triggered by a loose gas cap, a fouled O2 sensor, and several other emission related problems including sticking throttle body components, etc.
This can sometimes be sprayed with carb cleaner inserted in the snorkle area of the air intake where teh snorkle meets the metal intake.
