Check engine + Check Oil light on with key in starting position (V70)

    when I turn the key in the start position (middle key position), after
    all checks, the check endgine light and the check oil light do not
    turn-off. However when I turn the engine on (last key position),
    immediately these 2 lights turn off. Moreover neither the check engine
    light nor the check oil light do turn on when I drive the car.
    Is this normal ? I expect all check lights to turn off (except the
    brake light and the belt light)when the key is in the start position.
    Any help would be highly appreciated.
    Thanks - Filippo

  2. Yes, very normal.

    The check engine light comes on when the ignition is on and the engine
    is not running. It is a reminder to start the engine.

    The check oil light comes on when the ignition is on and the oil
    pressure is low. When the engine is not running, the oil pressure is
    very low, zero.

    the owners manual usually addresses such things.
    You should read it if you have one.
    If you don't have one ...order one from dealer.
