Default Dashboard Warning Lights

When I turn on the ignition of my 2006 9-5, but stop before starting the engine, all the warning lamps light up for a few seconds (this is normal) but 3 remain on:
battery,oil,& check engine. The manual states that only the first 2 should stay lit.
If I then continue to start the engine, all warning lights go off.
Any comments?

IIRC the orange engine-shaped one in the main instrument cluster stays lit in my car too, until you start the engine, upon which it goes out.

Well, then maybe its normal, but I'm sure this contradicts the owners manual.

Perhaps a third member will let us know if this is what happens in their car as well - that should give us a fair idea of whether it's normal!

My MY00 manual says 3 stay on prior to starting, oil, battery and the warning (exclamation mark).
