    I had the same problem on my 2007 Rav 4. The cause was just a loose gas cap. If it isn't closed properly or the senor is broken, those 3 lights will go on. I simply opened the gas tank, took out the cap then snugly replaced and voila the lights went off. I was able to do this and I am a Chic! Easy
