Advice Needed. by Integrafamoo: 3:40pm On Jun 09, 2019
Please house,I need your advice. I am an inexperienced driver. I serviced my car yesterday with original oil & filter. Shortly after, my car started displaying oil and battery light. But when fully started, the indicators stop. My instinct tells me the mechanic is trying to scam me but I don't know what to do.

you have not said anything out of the ordinary and for Christ sake we are not magicians here to decipher car model and year.

when ignition is at AC, ON or I, II depending on car type the oil, battery and some other warning lights would stay on.

When the engine is kicked and working the lights come on and switch off after 3 to 5secs, means the system is ok.

The battery light and oil light when illuminated after car ignition is running means there is a fault somewhere depending on car make and year will determine whether the oil warning light means low oil level or engine oil needs replacement.
