Hi All, Newbie here so please be tolerant. So I have my 410 and am reading the manual all about the key fob and the multitude of settings etc.....bit of a mind bender for me. Bottom line is I leave my car unlocked in the garage as its very secure but I have the little flashing light two flashes a second on the dash. Is this the default and is this OK if I dont use the car for a few weeks? Thanks in advance.

Hi and welcome Mark. That sounds like the immobiliser which arms itself 30 seconds after switch off or unlock and no switch on. Middle button on the key to turn it off but it'll just re-arm itself again in 30 seconds if you don't turn the key in the barrel.

Ok so is that the default and I cannot do anything about it? Happy if it is but I guess with smaller (lithium) battery I just dont want to to run the battery down....sounds mad I know but its all new to me. 

BTW I use a C-tec on my other car batteries should I invest in a battery conditioner whilst not in use or will the battery be OK? If I do need one any recommendations?

Ive got that Optimate charger. Just plug it in when you aren't going to use the car for a couple of weeks, and let it do its thing. It checks the levels, and then once in a while automatically conditions the battery
