What are the normal warning lights on a Mazda Protege5 when you put the key in?

I own a 2003 Mazda Protege 5.

Car varyity?


I am not sure if it is normal or not, but when I put the key in and turn it to the ACC position, after the 6 seconds when all the warning lights stay on, the Check Engine and the Oil Pressure lights stay on until i start the engine.

Youre ok in the position prior to starting.
If the lights are on while the car is running I would get it checked out.
So, if the lights turn off when you start the car...youre fine.

In most cars the Check engine light and oil light will stay on in KOEO (Key On, Engine Off) Situations. This is because the ECU (Electronic Control Unit) is expecting to get may signals from various sensors when the key is on. With the key on and engine off these signals are either not there or out of their normal range, thus setting off the Check engine light.

As far as the oil light the ECU is expecting the engine to be running when the key is on and therefore making oil pressure. With the engine not running though there is no oil pressure and the oil light comes on.

So, as long as both of these lights go off after you start the car, everything is fine.
