Hi there I drive at 2001 1.8sxi, My car usually starts first time when I turn the key but today it took a few attempts. Which I put down to cold weather, I therefore on my way home just turned on the igniton for a few seconds before starting the engine. It used to be the case that after a few seconds the majority of the lights on the dashboard went out. However today the Engine electronics sign, the engine cooling sign etc stayed on. These however go off when I go to start the engine and it seems to start ok. Looking at the handbook It only seems to say that there is a problem if these lights flash when the ignition is on or appear when the engine is running. These lights are just constantly staying on for me until I switch the engine on, at which time they all go off.
Do any of you reckon this is something I should worry about or anything I should check? Apart from the warning lights, the car is driving ok!
