Illumination on start/stop button

Just a question on something I noticed the other day.

When pushing the auto start button at night after non use of the car (particularly cold) the button flashes during the delay period as it waits for the glow plugs to warm up before engine cranks over.

Just wondered if this is normal or happens to other owners.

Usually e.g during summer or if the car has been used there is hardly any delay so as the start buton illuminates the engine also starts.

Currently in ns.thomson's garage:
Rover in Garage, Grande Espace 2.2 Initiale on Drive
