    i've been installing a new sound system and mucking with the electrical system, and now i'm paranoid that i screwed something up. when i turn the ignition to ON my RR Diff Lock light flashes for a moment, and the Battery, Oil, and Check Engine lights turn on. when i start the motor all the lights go away, but i don't remember all those service lights being on pre-start before! is that normal? am i just being paranoid?

    Yeah I think he just meant he didn't remember certain ones coming on before, but all seems fine so I think it was just paranoia! haha
