Check Engine Light ON

Hey Guys,

I noticed today that the Check Engine Light in my 528i(2011) stays ON when I turn on the car, but goes OFF right after ignition. I know all console lights are supposed to go ON after you turn on the car, but all of them, except Engine light, turn off within a few seconds. Is this normal?

I recently had an issue with my car, when I accelerate my car it hesitates and shakes, so went to my mechanics and i was told that cylinder 3 is misfiring.

Please let me know what might be the issue exactly

It's normal. Mine does the same. Goes away once the car started.

It goes on to show the light works, if it doesn’t the bulb needs replacing.
