    Just checking if my car should have an audible warning if I open the door with the lights left on?

    Usually they do yes, but if its got coming/leaving home it doesnt if set to auto, but we're referring to headlights yes?

    I don't have auto lights, just normal plain old switch. As previous cars I expected to have a warning if I'd left the switch in any position but off with the ignition off and opening a door. I get nothing at the moment so basically no warning if I've left the lights on, strange!!

    Have you removed the key ?
    If your not getting a beep with the key out/door open/lights on, could have a problem with the door lock.
    Does the DIS show the door open graphic?

    Yes, key removed and no sound when opening the door. I could if I wasn't paying attention leave the lights on and lock up and come back to a flat battery with no warnings.
    With the ignition on the DIS works fine, all door open warnings work perfect.

    I have exactly the same problem on mine, DIS door graphic is working fine. Would be nice to get a solution.

    Doesn't bother me too much now I'm aware of it, once the weathers better I'll look into it. Its maybe a Fife thing Greeny, I'm in Kennoway not far from you in Leuchars

    Scan for faults.
    You might be able to test the buzzer with VCDS output tests.
