Oil light means low oil pressure or the gauge is faulty. a check engine light and SES light tells you that there are codes stored int he system. You need to scan for the codes. If not codes come up, try a better scanner.

I would be concerned with the ABS light. With the light on, it means the ABS is not active, so in an emergency braking situation, you have to remember to pump the brakes.

Ik that's how I was taught to break to begin with

re-check the side terminal battery connections-8mm wrench and make sure they are tight. A loose battery connection can have those symptoms: check engine codes clearing, stalling/cutting out randomly.
