In this work, we consider the system:

where Ω is a bounded region in RN with smooth boundary ∂Ω, Δp is the p-Laplacian operator defined by Δpu = div (|∇u|p-2u), p, q > 1 and g (x) is a C1 sign-changing the weight function, that maybe negative near the boundary. f, h, a, b are C1 non-decreasing functions satisfying a(0) ≥ 0, b(0) ≥ 0. Using the method of sub-super solutions, we prove the existence of weak solution.
