    Interesting "glitch"

     

    I pulled into a parking spot this morning and shut my car off. When I opened the door, the chime sounded and I thought I forgot my keys. Nope. There was a message that said "parking lights on" so I made sure the lights were indeed off and the were. I turned them on and off again but the message remained. Then it dawned on me that I had pulled into the parking spot with my signal still blinking. Turns out I had shut the car off mid-blink and that caused the parking light warning. That's only happened with the Porsche as far as I can remember.

    Normal! The indicator lever acts as a parking light switch as soon as the ignition is off.

    So if you don't park the lever in the neutral position before you turn off the ignition the parking lights (left or right depending on lever position) come on and you get this message.

    Right... it's not a bug, it's a feature!


    Re: Interesting "glitch"

    I've had it many times - perfectly normal - I mean the car...not me!

    Funny, 5 years with the car and never noticed that feature, I always automatically turn off the blinkers before anything else so never activated it by chance either. Learn something new everyday

    It's just a way of halving the drain on your battery when parallel parking at night, by only lighting up the "offside" parking lights, instead of all four corners. Can be pretty useful.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: Interesting "glitch"

    Seems to be the case then, that this is supposed to happen. Thanks for the input. Nobody in North America uses parking lights, so we're not used to these things.


    Re: Interesting "glitch"

     I think that  ALL cars have this feature, at least all cars in europe
