If the dash lights come on, but the engine won't start, check the starter. There could also be a problem with the fuel line or the spark plugs. If the engine turns over, but won't start, check all of the fuel sensors. If the motor has a clicking or buzzing sound, check the alternator.

By "OFF," I have to assume that your question means that the ignition switch is "ON", but the engine is not running. IF that is what your question means, then the reason the engine warning lights turning on is that the manufacturer designed the system that way to show you that those warning circuits and lights are working, and ready to warn you after you start the engine, should there be a failure in one of the systems they represent.
