    I left my lights on ... AGAIN

    Hey,

    This is my first post so forgive me if this has already been posted (I've checked but can't find anything similar).

    I'm after getting a 05 MK5 Astra but to my surprise there is no warning noise when I open the Drivers door and the lights are left on.

    My last car used to warn me if I left them on but my new Astra doesn't.

    Is it faulty electronics or is this just a "feature" with the Astra MK5???

    Thanks,

    Mick

    I'm pretty sure the Mk5 Astra's lights go off when you take the keys out of the ignition?? Which is why there wouldn't be a warning noise

    You would think that but nope. The lights stay on when the keys are taken out of the ignition.

    really? hmm, you sure the actual lights stay on and not just the switch??
    oh well, i'm not a mk5 owner, but I remember someone on here saying that it was clever how you couldn't acidentaly leave the lights on

    I don't know if this is true for the newer MK5 but not for mine. I guess I best buy some jump leads!

    I think Maplins do a lights on kit, that will imit a sounds if there is power to the lighting circut and the interior light (I.E doors open)
