Warning light on dash during startup when ignition is in mar

Hey ppl can you help please when I start my fiat punto evo 1.2active I get the amber triangle come on and turn off the same time as the other normal lights which come on during start up ... I was wondering of anyone could tell me if this light is normal or it means there is a minor fault with something which needs checking ? This light doesn't stay on or come on during driving only during start up after the key has passed the mar point.

Amber Triangle is a bulb fault is it not? possibly a sidelight, indicatior or even number plate bulb..

It come when you put ignition on, and come of for exemple in same time as airbag light ?

Warning Light - this light will illuminate with other lights and is usually accompanied by an error message in the display

This one ? :

You welcome, happy to help you

It is small things we don't take care when all is fine, and when we see it, there arise the question where it is fine or not.

I'm pretty sure they are illuminating as part of the "test sequence",
same as the airbag system lights do a self-test,

Exactly, this is the same purpose than airbarg, see if the test squence is good and if someone has not done anything to mask the warning (always interessant to be careful and check these lights you buy a car - but the best is still to check with multiecuscan)
