Start light on 1997 Ford Aspire, 4 cyl

A friend has a 1997 Ford Aspire and he's having a problem with what he is calling his start light. He says it should come on when he inserts the ignition switch and switches on the ignition. Then it should go
off when the car starts. The light is not coming on. He said hat last year he had the same problem and the guy at thye service station fixed it by pressing a button somewhere.
Anybody know about this and what button to push. Maybe some kind of reset button.
If possible please reply to John at snipped-for-privacy@gmail.com or snipped-for-privacy@msn.com
Thanks so much.

The point is, there's no such thing. There are usually several lights that light up before startup. In fact, In most cars, EVERY light lights up as a test before the thing starts. You need to give us more info, that's all.
