Welcome to the site.

That warning light is telling you that the self levelling rear suspension is not working. Check in the rear panel on the left where the rear washer bottle is and see if the switch is on. Also you should not jack up the vehicle with the levelling switch on.

That is the check engine light. You need to get the codes read and then go from there.
