This used to happen intermittently but now almost all the time.
When I lock the car with the electronic tab everything locks ok but
after a couple of seconds the direction indicator lights start flashing
again and the car remains like this.
Whether it is a central locking problem or whether it is an alarm
problem, I do not know.
There are two kinds of alarm sensor in this standard model: a tilt
sensor to detect if the vehicle is being hitched to a tow truck, and an
ultrasound sensor to detect is somebody breaks in. I can disable either
or both of these with a rocker switch. However disabling the alarm
sensors does not stop the problem.
It is an unacceptable problem because leaving the lights flashing will
discharge the battery and leaving the car unlocked will invite thieves.
