I didn't notice it on mine until I was in a car park, killing time, waiting to meet up with someone. I'd left the car for a walk around, and as it was dark, the light stuck out like a sore thumb when I came back.

I think the light going off also coincides with the locking of the fuel filler flap. This appears to stay unlocked for several minutes after you lock the car (on handsfree at least) and I thought for a while that mine was faulty.

Star man! Thanks for the reply - I've since spoken to someone else who has a Scenic and they said their light also stays on for approx 40 seconds, so I'm happy now that my car is fine. Regards Garck
