    Default Hmmm...that's weird!!

    Well I was just locking the house up for the night and looked out my dining room window to see my side lights flashing.

    I have some smd led bulbs and already know about the whole canbus/strobing issue, so not bothered about that, but what worries me is that my car hasn't been touched for well over an hour!

    If Im honest, this isn't the first time I have noticed it. I have walked to the shop before and come back to see them strobing. When I have asked my wife of she has gone out to the car, she has said no.

    Any ideas?

    Yeah I always deadlock it. I will check again before I go to sleep.

    As long as it doesn't give me a flat battery!!
