    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

    Never been on any of the 3 new Ford Focus's I had before the A3!!

    Also just discovered yesterday that there's a button on the drivers door shut to disable the alarm !!!

    Try moving the circular thing in front of you to see what that does ;)

    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.
