Warning lights

2016 Kia Sportage Diesel AWD Auto
Car: Kia Sportage
Year: 2016
Variant: Diesel AWD Auto
Categories: Electrics, ECU, Warnings & Lights
Often when I select neutral, two warning lights appear on the dash screen – the electronic stability control and downhill brake control icons. This is intermittent and only happens when neutral is selected. Once these lights come on, they will stay on until the engine is switched off, even if I change to drive or reverse.

The manual says these lights - among others - illuminate when the engine is switched on and then go out after a few seconds. Why they come on intermittently when neutral is selected is the mystery.
