Stability controls, such as DSC yes and then the tire pressure light after...

Make sure your bolts are tight on your tires by pulling on them hard. Also check your fuse box for that DSC/Tire pressure system. There should be a fuse key in the glove box and under the hood.

Speed sensor problem.

Stability control and tire pressure monitor both use the wheel speed sensors for input. The lights are telling you that something is wrong.

First step is to clean then. Then, if that does not work, you need to figure out which one is bad and change it.
