Default dash warning lights

can someone tell me what warning lights i should see when i turn on my ignition. right now all i am getting is the security one. i have a 95 ssei, i dont know if different years have different lights, but can you tell me what you got anyways?

i should see check engine, alternator, trac off, etc...

i see nothing...no bad fuses

Does the dash gauges and lites work when the car is started?
I have a 2k so it lites up like a christmas tree :P But I would think there should be warning lites thatn just the security? Are there any stored codes?

no, just the security light, however in the little picture of the car, all the words that surround the car go on. but in the panel to the left of the car, only the security light goes on

Haro, you said your TC don't work! Think it'd show up right if it did work right?

ok i did some testing today,

i can get it to lose traction on gravel, so it turns out that both the dash light and the console light dont work. but yes, the TC does work, i just wish i didnt have to try to lose traction to remember was it was on, ya know?
