Default Honda Civic Battery Light?

Hey I have a 1991 Honda Civic Dx. When I turn it to the click right before you crank it, the utility lights come on. On my car the oil and battery light will stay on, then if the car starts up, they'll go away. Today i turned the key to the one before the crank, and the oil light wasn't on anymore, just the battery. I don't know what this means, but the car starts up fine and all utility lights are gone when I'm driving it. I just want to know if this is a warning for something? My battery is only about 2 months old too.

The battery light is a bit of a misnomer, it measures the charging system output not your battery. Get you alternator tested.

those lights come on to confirm they are working and go out to confirm the systems are working

since the oil light works on a completed ground circuit you either have

a: burned out the bulb

b: you have a bad oil sending unit

c: you have a pinched wire

d:you have a more serious electrical problem

I would vote for a or b
