    If the power was cut the lights couldn't be used when parked at night if required.

    Who needs the parking lights on when the car is locked? Even if it was needed for some rare scenario - at least cut the power after some time like 30 minutes. All that happens right now is people get flat batteries!

    The best thing to do is turn the switch once more to put the headlights on and buzzer will work.

    Europeans use parkers at night, albeit only the road side ones are on.

    Regardless of how they are programmed, there is a buzzer anyway. I dont think the buzzer can be turned off on the MFD like some options can be either

    no...turn the switch on once more and you will turn the headlightS on...thus arming the switch off lights parts of the curcuit

    BUZZER/WARNING SOUND ONLY WORKS WITH THE PARKERS LEFT ON AND KEY OUT OF IGNITION.

    I am sure that any state will struggle to put on an equivalent to what MMX was, it was awesome both in the aspect of events and the social aspect after cruises,

    Yep - will use the circuit diagram from Vlad (thanks again) to put a cut-out in circuit. I think he thought the lights were fully off when he got out, but they weren't - (was the first day on his 'P's).

    Ok - so there is a buzzer if the parkers are left on when you get out o the car with the key? If so then there is an electrical problem to track down and fix.

    There is a buzzer - but I don't think it works 100% of the time in my car either.
