Mine comes on when key is at the "on" position. It doesn't ask me for VIN either, it says, reading VIN, then up comes the screen with all the info you've chosen to monitor. Mine is the CTS Insight.
The first three times you use it on any vehicle, it will force you to ack the disclaimer, but other than that, like you said, you should be seeing battery voltages and ECT immediatly, prior to engine on.
