    Parking Lights

    Hi,

    After 11 months and 23,000 miles - I just discovered that my car has parking lights, activated by the indicator stalk when I switch the engine off!!

    Any more tricks I should know about - LOL

    I think that button just disables the anti-tilt and anti-tow alarm.

    The main alarm is only disabled by the key/fob !

    That button just disables the internal alarm sensors.
