When the check engine light comes on it will usually disable the traction control which is also tied into the ABS as a safety feature resulting in their lights to come on. The shudder may be caused by a cylinder misfire which in turn should cause the check engine light to flash when the misfire occurs and will keep the check engine light on. Have the computer scanned for codes to see if a misfire is present and correct from there. It may be as simple as a spark plug/ignition coil failure. When the problem is corrected and the codes cleared, the lights will go out
What make , model an year vehicle are you talking about . Most all newer vehicles have control modules that control relays that turn on the headlamps an control the starter relay etc... Plus anti-theft systems can disable a vehicle from starting .
Battery could be dead. (Like maybe an interior light was left on for a long time) Do any lights come on in the dashboard when you turn the ignition key to run or start? Any noises from the starter/solenoid? If not, first place to check is the battery. If you have a battery charger, put it across the battery and see if any lights come on when you turn the key. If you are a member of AAA, call them and they can come out with a new battery and test your battery to see if that is indeed the problem.

On a Prius, when the check engine light comes on it indicates a malfunction in the powertrain control system. You need to have the car scanned for codes to see where the fault lies. The red triangle lights because the check engine light is on. The VSC is disabled when the check engine light is on and that light comes on. Start with having the car scanned.
Start the car for the first time, make sure the lights are doing it. Then push on the emergency brake a few times making sure it comes up all the way (if not help it out by hand). See if the lights stop. The ABS/Tracktion control is shut off when the E-brake is applied in Fords. I don't know if this is true in Chrysler's but is worth a check. If this has any effect on the lights then it's the pedal not coming all the way up or the switch in the E-brake mech coming loose or malfunctioning.
