I just watched a 1998 Ford Taurus at a private owner yesterday. He is the 2nd owner of this car. The condition of this car really good as a 10 years old car with a low miles which is 68000.

But there is problem that when i turned the key to the 1st position, every light on the dash was turn on for several seconds this is normal. After that, the service your engine soon light still turn on while others were off. I asked the owner he said me dont know car...then he turned on the engine. The engine light was off....this is really different with my ford contour.

Is that normal? Or there should be some problem with the engine with this car.

thanks you guys who can help me !

All the lights on the dash should light up for a few seconds when you turn the key on they go off after you start the car it's normal. Also the car is 13 years old now, not 10.

It's basically a test or "prove out" to show that all the warning light bulbs are functioning.
