headlight flashing

My 147 has a problem with flashing the headlights when the ignition is not on. The lights go on, but they stay on.
They only go out if the ignition is switched on. anyone else got this problem or a solution?

Re: headlight flashing

Yeah this is actually a feature on 147 its called follow you home headlights. Once the ignition is turned off if you flash the headlights in under 1 minute thay will come on for 30 seconds if you flash again its 1 minute up to a max of 3 minutes I think. To turn them off you flash the switch and hold it for 3 seconds which turns them off again. Very clever but a bit silly in my opinion. Trust me its true.

Re: headlight flashing

I thought it could be the "follow me home" function, but didn't know how it was triggered as I've never had a 147.

Re: headlight flashing

It's good for out in the sticks.

Also used it once to "mark" which house a party
was at. (For a mate who got lost when following me.)

So why is it called Follow me home? Whose home?
