My 1990 100 has done the same thing for the last six years; I too have
wondered about it...up until now no ill effects seem to be a result of it.

My 100 (w/o computer) has a warning light in the center between the speedo
and tach that indicates low fluids (etc.) with an annoying tone. It
indicates when fuel gets near empty. It generally cycles through the system
when you first start the car. Maybe yours is not working.
