[More on that project later, but I noticed something strange that my 03 Q45 doesn't do.]
I accessed the key cylinder and released the key. Good!
The battery is decently charged, and will crank up the car.
I did the following tests with the headlight switch in the OFF or AUTO position, with the same results.
- Open front left door (driver US) and the parking lights flicker on, stay lit momentarily and then turn off.
- Open any of the other 3 doors and the parking lights stay on until that individual door is shut.
Now, I see a benefit in this system being a door reminder system, but I don't see why only one door should behave any differently.
I saw nothing about this is the owner's manual, but maybe I missed it? I have a feeling this is the car warning me of some module not getting power... maybe related to why it cranks but won't start.
What do you guys think; does anyone else's Q45 do that?
