Nothing to worry about here Sammywb it's operating correctly. With the ignition on but the engine not started the vast majority of the warning lights will illuminate which lets you know that the warning lights are working. Then when the car is started they should go out. It's only if the engine warning light comes on when the engine is running that you should be concerned.
