Something that I've never been quite sure of is whether I can leave the ignition in the on position with all of the warning lights showing for a long period? I vaguely remember some kind of scare story from my dad when I was little about some kind of coil burning out.
The reason I ask is that my parrot handsfree kit (with ipod adapter) is wired into the cigarette lighter, which only comes on when I have the ignition key in the "ready to start" position. Sometimes I want to sit in the car and listen to the ipod when I'm waiting to pick someone up etc.
I can hear a whirring noise from the back - the fuel pump? Is there any reason not to? I've got the CDTi engine but I'd be interested to know about the petrol one too!
Thanks in advance,
