Engine Management & Oil light on when engine is off

Wierd one!

I Have an 03 Punto 1.2 8v active sport. The car is driving fine (as normal). However this evening when I parked up at home, I switched the engine off, removed the key from the ignition and the engine management light and the oil warning light came on solid and have not yet gone out. This was about 3 hours again. Since then I have checked the oil level which is normal, and have driven the car. The strange thing is that when you start the engine, the engine management and the oil lights go out.

Any ideas?
Thank you

Cheers. In the end I pulled the fuse for the instrument panel lamps.

What could have caused the glitch?

Anything. Just hope it's not a re-occouring one!
