Do Not Sell My Personal Information


Recommended Posts

Evening all,

I recently purchased a 2017 Mondeo ST line and didn’t realise it didn’t have automatic headlights.  However, I nipped out somewhere tonight, got out of the car but left the lights on, the warning beeping started as expected but when I looked back, my lights weren’t on.  Started my car on and on came the lights.  My question is that even though the car doesn’t have automatic lights, it appears as if they do go off and come back on automatically, will the battery run out?

Auto lights, from my experience, is standard on the STline. What does your dial look like? Do you have Facebook? I admin a very active Mk5 page that you may find beneficial to join.

Cheers. I have requested to join. 
 

the dial just shows off, sidelights and headlamps. The warning sound made me think it’s not auto lights but hopefully I can just leave them on without draining the battery

Quite safe to leave the switch in the headlight ON position, it will not drain your battery as the ignition kills the supply to them when you switch off.

Auto headlights is now standard on all cars in Europe and the UK as it is now a legal requirment.
