just found two new functions

1. Following removing the key fob. If you pull the indicator stalk towards you / the follow you home light stay on for 30 seconds. 2 pulls 60 sec 3 pulls 90 sec and so on till 210 secs Max.

2. If one of the side light bulbs /rear/ fails the ECU dims a brake light as substitute.

3. By pushing the parking light button / right of steering wheel all side lights are on by using the indicator staslk again you can choose nearside or off side lights. Clever ah !!
P.s I can,t count lol

It's always worth having a read of the Owner Manual to see what functions your car has

Multi- purposes lamps ( rear side/brakes ) shows failure both way.
Some car sales means no Owner manual included.

There are two threads along the lines of 'hidden features' and tips and tricks that have a long line of features that are all in the owners handbook already! Reckon about 1 in 10 isn't in the book.
