R56 Startup Warning Lights


Is anyone able to confirm the number of dashboard warning lights that illuminate then extinguish when you first start the car the car?

I know a few are meant to, then go out a few seconds after you start the car, however I have never paid too much attention to exactly which ones these are! Having actually looked today I am concerned some of mine are coming on to indicate a fault when they are not meant to.

On the speedo I get:
Typre Pressure [Yellow]
Engine Light [Yellow]

On the rev-counter I get:
Handbrake: [Yellow then red] (regardless of whether the handbrake is engaged)
Traction Control [Yellow]
ABS [Yellow]

All extinguish after a couple of seconds and no other fault messages show, just wanted to make sure this is normal!
