The two systems are separate, if you have both lights doing this then it could be a wiring or relay fault, or you do indeed have 2 separate problems happening, when the lights are on those systems are deactivated, so it would be advisable to get them checked out at a shop you trust.

how expensive is it to repair?

All depends on what they find is wrong, averaging costs have been between 150 to 500 bucks, you just don't know until the codes have been read.
