the battery light, oil & coolant light come on when the key is turned to Aux but when I start the car all lights turn off and do not come back on, does that mean my car is ok ? I just want to know if there is something wrong with the car or engine will the light(s) come on and stay on even when I'm driving ?
The systems lights ( 3 of them ) come on when the key is turned to AUX on 1993 Chevrolet Lumina

The lights on all my previous cars did that, you don't need to worry unless they com on while driving. We have a 95 Lumina and the coolant light stays on all the time. I was told the sensors act crazy after certain amount of miles, ours has like 243978 on it so just take care of it and it should last forever..lol...

Thanks a lot for your response, it's pretty solid all around I just wanted to make sure because I love that car and it has been extremely good to me over the years ( It sounds like you know what I mean 200,000 + miles ?, NICE!) and I try to stay on top of fluid changes, Etc. so I hope to reach the mileage you have with it. Thanks again man.

Its doing what is called a bulb check. If the lights come on when you are driving then you have a problem.
