Does your 159's indicators flash when you unlock?

Good afternoon,

I was wondering if 159's indicators are meant to flash when you unlock them?

I found it flashes when double press to lock.

PS does anyone know what this is? Is it to do with auto-dimming mirror? (pic attached)

The 2 sensors behind the screen are for auto wipers and auto headlights I think. My 159 flashes on both locking and unlocking.

The middle sensor behind the mirror is for the auto wipers. The other sensor to the right of your photo is to do with the climate control and as far as I know registers when there is mist on the screen and turns the air con up to clear it.

Yep, my indicators flash when locking and unlocking. I like the feature, along with the beep, as it gives me confidence that I have actually locked the car!

The second 'lock press' engages the deadlock
