Im assuming these turn of after startup. When the alternator isn't running, these lights automatically come on. Your alternator doesn't start running until your car is running, because it is run by a belt from your engine. So, if your lights stay on after startup, either you have a snapped alternator belt or your alternator is buggered. We had our alternator belt snap the other day while we were driving down a hill, it was quite a scary experience as we didn't know what was going on and in automatics the breaks barely work without the alternater running.
