Dash Lights on when I start car

I was wondering why my dash lights come on when I go to start my car. This happens even in the daytime and I haven't even turned on the headlights.

It's just a normal startup test so that you can see that your dash lights are working rather than finding out that they don't work when you actually need them.

Are you talking about the oil light, check engine light, etc. Or the lights that illuminate your tach and speedo?

The gauges are illuminated white in the daytime and when you turn the headlights on it switches to green. I'm not sure why, but that's how mine works.

I was just wondering if anybody knew why. For years we didn't have that on our cars then all of a sudden we have it.
