Service light indicators

Does anybody know if they stay on while driving in case a service is due? I'm talking about the yellow and the red lights. I have a 96 328iS. Thanks!

They should come on during startup,but should go away about 2 seconds later.

I believe once you hit the yellow they will stay on.

I think if you are in green, it only appear when you turn on the car.
Once you hit yellow or red, it will stay on briefly after you turn off the car as well.

Eitherway, I don't think it stay on during driving.

Yup when the yellow or red turns on it will illuminate either the Service Inspection 1/2 OR Oil change, and no the indicators stay off if they are in the green stages...
