Hello all,

I am new to this forum, i have a question regarding my Fiesta, just wondering if anyone can help?

I have recently noticed that the time display on my car stays on when I have taken the key out of the ignition. On further investigation, I went to check my tyre pressure and the device i use connects via the cigarette charger/lighter, I was able to use this without my key being in the ignition. Also if I press the on off switch on the radio it turns on, again while the key is not in the ignition

Is this a feature of all Ford Fiesta Finesse cars 53 plate, or does my car have a problem?

Thanks all for any help!

This is all ok... No issues!!

The clock display will turn off after a few minutes once the ignition is turned off. Or it does on my focus anyway!!
The Cigarette lighter is always live,
And Finally, the radio will probably have a 1 hour mode if the ignition isn't on!
