    Default Locking Car

    Hi

    I have just replaced the interior light for a 48 LED board, which is now super bright, but when I locked the car and pressed it again, the indicators did not flash a second time.

    That is no way related to what I had just done is it? How do I know if whatever pressing the lock button twice does has worked?!

    I've had the same issue with the second flash though caused by something I've yet to find.

    Solution which worked for me - lock the car with the plip, then unlock the car with the key, then lock the car with the key. Then use the plip as usual - normal service should be resumed.

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    You didn't open the drivers door after locking it and unlocking it at a guess. Pretty sure mine does that too. Unlock it and use one of the other doors not the drivers door and when you lock it it only does one plip (I think). Don't quote me on this and I'm not getting my car out of the garage to check it lol.

    The above could be the ramblings of a madman though...

    Yeah, I didn't get in the drivers side.

    Well I tried the above and it worked. The second flash is back.
