Here in the UK, I only have a basic spec model with no active alarm system, but I assume someone with a higher trim model who do have an alarm system, will be able to help you. I personally never liked noisy alarm systems as no-one looks anymore, and will just walk on. Do not blame them either.
Is this the light that comes on? (taken from the manual)....
If so it says in the manual, that it should flash on and off continiously when alarm is activated when out of the car.
I would expect it to be off, if the alarm is off.
Not sure if Ecosport has the following....Some cars do have a method of telling you if the alarm went off while you were away from the car, for example interior movement sensor operation might be code 4, so the alarm light would flash on four times fast then off for a while, then four times fast again, etc, but should reset the next time car alarm is used.
Hi we have noticed the orange glow from the 2 sensors either side of the mirror. We have not Been to the dealer because the car has displayed this function since new and does not bother us! Can't imagine why these sensors 'glow' but we don't mind!
Hi our Eco is a April 17 model and it is definitely the alarm that glow orange! At night they are bright enough to cast a glow on the gearstick.We presumed that this was a standard feature, but as said in earlier post the orange light does not bother us. It does now seem odd!
This could be a feature normally referred to 'Ambient Lighting'. My Ford S-Max has this feature as it was standard on the Titanium series and produces a very low orange light in the cabin from either side of the interior mirror. It was an option years ago on some Ford cars like Kuga, S-Max and even Fiesta. Funnily enough I haven't checked my Ecosport as I have a Titanium 2016 model as it's my wife's car and don't drive it much unfortunately - only modify/clean it!
I'll let you know if I notice it! )
Thank you all for your replies. Didn't' mean to stir up a hornet's nest! It would appear that it is just something I should get used to. My car is a June 2015 model so I think that means it is before any facelift. Thanks again for your comments.
