This will sound stupid I know but better for me to ask it online than in person! I have just bought a 2008 Ford Focus econetic estate and there are no chimes if I walk away from the car with the lights on. I have looked at the menu and put a cross in the box for low fuel, general info and general warning but nothing. Does it not exist on this car or is it a fault? I know it's nothing major but I know that it's only a matter of time before I walk away and drain the battery!

Thanks for any advice.

Er, thats a good one. I know mine chimes when I leave the lights on!

I think it might be a look at it with a computer jobby. Just 100%, you have all the options for chimes ticked?

Thanks for responding Andy. Yes, a x in all 3 boxes but nothing. Today I found that when I walk away from the car and the full beam stick is pushed forward then the full beam stays on. Also the electronic display remains on for quite a while after I have left the car.

Any more thoughts?

Put the car into test mode and flick through until you get to the test mode for chimes. Obviously if you hear nothing, the speaker where this noise comes from is presumeably not working.

How do I do that because I don't think I have that option on this car?

Display staying on is normal but should go out I think when the car is locked.

Full beam lights staying on would have me worried, that isn't normal. Are you sure its the full beams and not the dipped. I think these have 'get me home' lights.

Definitely the full beam. The advice shown on the link doesn't seem to work. The trip reset button is not on the instrument panel but within the menu so I have to turn the ignition on to do it.

I bought it last Friday from a garage. I've also noticed that the front and rear n/s footwells are damp so I think I'll ask them to take a look at it especially if water is affecting the wiring.

Try this:

On Trip computer hold trip reset button in , keep holding and turn IGN to position 2 , keep holding until Test comes up , approx 10 seconds

When you push the Full beam forward , do they go off after approx 30 seconds? or are you leaving lights on and pushing full beam forward? ould be the walk home feature

Display will stay on for upto 10 minutes and is standard , no idea why Ford did this

The full beam did go off so thanks for that. When I leave the lights on with the ignition out it is just the 'get me home lights' so happy with that.

I did the Test as described above. The only thing to report is after the gauge sweep the screen is just lit with nothing written, when I continue to scroll through the 'NVM EEprom level' flashes from 001 to 'Fail' and the Chimer module reads 'On 750 Hz 50%'

Does this tell me anything?

Yes it does chime when doing the test and it chimes when for example when the temperature drops. Perhaps my car just doesn't have a warning chime for when the lights are left on?
