i read somewhere on here you can have the headlights lights come on if you use one of the stalks before locking and leaving the car, and the lights stay on for a minute, is this right, if so which stalk etc? is it part of an upgrade pack or something?
also can you have the lights come on when you unlock the car?? Its a bit dark where i usually park at work and would be nice to light it up to see what im doing, or anyone else for that matter!! I would look in the handbook if i had one.... (im stil hassling the dealer about this!)

cheers all

When you stop the car turn off the lights and use the left hand stalk as if you were flashing your lights this keeps them on for 30 secs i think haven't done it for a while but i think this is how it works

i think on the facelift ones you might be able to have them on for a minute when you leave the car but i dont think on any model they will come on if you unlock the car

Sounds like another little gem I need to try. Gotta love the ST!

Glen, that was a good feathure on the Fiesta ST, when you unlock the car the side lights front and rear come on.

I had this on my Fiesta ZS when I unlocked the car the side and rear lights would come on. Haven't seen this on the Focus ST though.

Theyre called 'Follow me home' headlights...on my pre facelift you simply take the ignition key out pull the left hand stalk towards you(like you do to flash your headlights)and the lights will stay on for 30 secs,doesnt matter if the doors are locked or unlocked,pretty pointless if you ask me
