Ev400 Headlights auto off (not)

Recommended Posts

My 400 headlights do NOT automatically turn off when I leave and lock the car.

I have 'discovered' this twice now in 6 months. Fortunately both times I had parked at home in the garage so recharging a dead battery a few days later was not such a problem.

However is this correct (that they do not switch off automatically) or do I have a fault?

If they don't switch off, has anyone invented a 'fix' or even added a buzzer as a reminder.

Even our 12 yr old mini has lights that switch off automatically!

As far as I’m aware they are not auto in any way, but they do have a buzzer if you leave them on.

"home safe" in the owners manual about when they are on and you get out and use the remote to lock the doors the light button will flash and the lights will turn off after x amount of time.

Those instructions are for an S1 Evora.  The 400 doesn't have the same type of momentary switch for turning the lights on / off, and do not switch off automatically.

See this thread for details of the equivalent 400 'homesafe' functionality:

Well after 4yrs of ownership, I’ve just been taught another RTFM lesson. 😊

I’ve always found it a faff that I need to prod the headlight button and then the parking lights button to power everyhing down - now realising that a 1second press does this for me.

And the Homesafe feature is even better!

This idiot thanks you for your post. 😎

thanks for the feedback. Have now tested and there is in fact a buzzer. Is just very quiet so I didn't even notice it before.
