    Battery Light on Dash?

    I've noticed that when my key is in the ON position the battery light comes up. But when I start the engine it goes off.
    Just wondering if that is normal or should I get it checked out?

    Same goes for my check engine light

    Oh no, is your air bag light on too? If so, does it turn off after 30 seconds or so?

    If it does, you need to return it to the dealer. They sold you a fluke.

    Come on guys, not everyone is a car guru. To the OP, dude it is normal in just about every car for all sorts of dash lights to come on when the key is turned on and then go off when you start the car. I don't know about the 03 but my 06 lights up like a Christmas tree!!!

    Sir, I'll have you know I own an Aston Martin Rapide as my DD and a 458 Italia as my track car. I keep the CTS around to keep me humble, but it's really just a beater to me.

    Well aren't you just a special little douche. Might want to take some of that change and invest in an owners manual. On. Serious note, that is the dumbest question I've ever seen asked on this site. Good job buddy. You keep your stupidity and ill keep my pocket change. Thank you
