    Dashboard lights when ignition on ACC

    Hey everyone my name is Joe, I've recently purchased a used Mazda 3, 2013 114k kilometers. I'm very happy with the purchase, I have noticed a couple interesting things and I'm not that car knowledgeable. When I turn the key ignition to "ACC" (engine not running) the oil, power steering, and battery symbols light up on my dashboard, but when I fully turn the car ON (engine is running now) they all turn off, is this something I should be worried about?/what are the potential reasons for this? I haven't gotten an oil change yet (I've only owned it for 8 hours now) I'm not sure when the oil was last changed either, it is on my list for 3 days from now however. I also plan on getting a new battery for the car. I'll attach a picture if I can figure out how too.

    Curious why you think it needs a new battery?

    What is the oil level when you checked it?

    Sorry, also the check engine light pops up as well but only while ignition is switched to "ACC".

    The oil level did seem a bit low. As for the battery, I just kind of want a new one so no problems occur.

    Those lights are normal, nothing to worry about. Think of it as a warning lamp test.

    If any of the lights come on while ignition is ON, then observe the condition indicated.
