Differences in headlight settings between two Focus mk3?

Recommended Posts

Wonder if anyone can shed some light on this, just more out of curiosity than anything else. 

My partner and me both have Zetec Ecoboosts, both the same spec as far as I can tell. Mine is a 63 plate and hers is a 14 plate. 

On her one, she leaves the headlight switch in the on position all the time and doesn't turn them off. When switching the car off and opens the door the headlights just go off. On mine if I do exactly the same, I get a chime telling me that I've left the lights on.

A brief look through the settings and forscan on both cars and I cannot see a reason for this difference?

Anybody have any ideas? 😊

She will have auto lights on hers, you will see the difference on the headlight switch Heres will have 4 position, your will have 3

Nope, neither of them have auto lights. Was one of the things I looked for! Only 3 positions on the switch

Guessing different version of BCM Or something?
There’s that setting in forscan to allow constant 12v to headlights which helps when doing an led retrofit or projector retrofit... wonder if it’s something to do with that?

Didn't think about BCM versions, wonder if it could be that!

And possibly different wiring loom on the full car. Different being a few unused connectors or ones that are taped up and possibly different BCM layout or something, Wouldn’t surprise me :)
