It is normal to see every attention light after stall. Because the car is not functioning all equipments and ignition assumes that car is at ignition 2 position. After start all attention lights suppose to gone. Probably your gas filter is kind a stuck or injection(s). Also fulling up your tank with decent gas station brand matters. Local unknown gas station`s gas quality is lowest quality. Worst case gas pump is about to die. You should stop by a mechanic shop to find exact solution.
