I'm assuming you're talking about the check engine light.
The check engine light indicates that the computer has detected a malfunction in the engine/emission control system and has diagnostic codes and data stored which would be essential in diagnosing the problem.
A technician with a scanner could access the diagnostic codes and data and then be able to give you a diagnosis.
If it's the other warning lights, there must be an electrical problem, the fact that hitting a bump affects the engine points to a bad electrical connection somewhere.
