My car has 75000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi Robert. Thanks for the question tonight. When these two lights illuminate or flicker like you’ve described, it usually indicates that a sensor or electrical connection to a sensor that monitors these systems. There are several of these sensors on your Kia Sedona, so it’s hard to tell you which ones to check. The best advice I can offer is to have a professional mechanic complete a warning light inspection, so they can download any stored codes, which should lead them to the root problems.
