WARNING LIGHTS ON AND ENGINE SHUTS DOWN

2008 Toyota Prius

Engine Performance problem
2008 Toyota Prius 4 cyl Automatic 25,000 miles

We have a 2008 Prius package 6 with VSC, and most bells & whistles, I do my own oil changes and rotation and what maintenance I am able. After changing oil and filter and rotating tires and checking off the maintenance list the warning lights are on. Major warning triangle, VSC, brake system warning light, engine check light. The engine powers down after 30 seconds and no power available. All I did was rotate tires and change oil and filter, check filters & fluids etc. One item changed and that was: one rear wheel lug broke when rotating tires. Not yet repaired. Apparently overtightened @ about 80 lbs.
