I've noticed occasionally that if I turn the ignition off but leave the key in the slot, that all the dashboard lights and the headlights blink intermittently. It only seems to happen when I turn the ignition off but don't get out of the car.

Has anyone else noticed this, it doesn't seem to happen all the time, but so far in the year that I've had the car it's done it enough times to be noticable. Strangely, when I point out these kind of "quirks" to MB at service time they always tell me that nothing has come up in the diagnostics. :roll:

Is this what's meant by the phrase too much technology"? :)

All C class cars do this. It is a reminder that the key in in the igniton. I first discovered this when I got in the car, put the key in the switch, but didn't turn it immediately while I stowed some items, and adjusted the mirror. I believe it is the fog lights which flash.

Anyway, there is nothing wrong. Your car is functioning as designed. :)

Thanks Lynn that's really helpful. I was just a bit concerned as it doesn't seem to happen every time and there's no mention of it in the user manual.
