Problems with the electronic stability control and brake assist systems will light up the two orange lights. The underlying issue should be diagnosed and repaired as soon as possible. You won’t have any anti-lock brakes or stability help while driving until you do.

the red light is a problem with the airbag(s). So if you have a crash because of the lack of anti-lock brakes or stability control, you may not have any airbags to protect you from serious injury either.

that’s a perfect storm of bad for the car if you drive spiritedly very often. Take it to the dealership or a localmechanic and have them take a look asap

I'm betting that you have a bad wheel speed sensor

” Lol, it might work, it just might work...

But if new speed sensors in the rear wheels do not resolve the problem, what is the plan going forward?

I don’t know how much new speed sensors cost, but surely the price of two of them put together is close to the hourly labor rate a local mechanic charges for diagnostic time.

Instead of throwing parts and money at an unknown problem with no guarantee it will work, why not have the problem identified by a pro, pay them for their time and them decide how you want to proceed?

My $0.02...

That might be the problem

Where can I buy them from

im Going to change my two back speed sensors and see what it does
As others have suggested .... take it to a dealer or at least a qualified garage. You're talking about systems that you want to work perfectly when you need them.

I was only offering a possible explanation. I had the same issue with my '11 Challenger R/T Classic and that was the dealer's diagnosis. Fortunately, mine went bad while it was still under warranty.

Sounds like another but more serious problem. Running an engine with little to no oil will definitely cause some damage to the engine. Can't see how no oil in the engine would throw all those errors unless it get hot enough to melt wires. I always check oil level whenever I am filling up for gas. Funny thing is, people look at me like I am some freak when I do.

Wow. Sure seems like an odd set of lights for no oil.
