Hello guys, is there a supported function to leave front and rear parking light on ? I dont know what parking light supposed to be on, just asking if is supported :?
I tried leaving the turn signal switch in the right or left turn position after the ignition has been switched off but nothing happened. Any ideas ?

Yes I have hgad my car 3 weeks & noticed that the facility is not available. I have used parking lights a lot in previous cars especially in busy or unlit areas where I deemed it was safer to let other road users know that there's a parked vehicle in front of their paths. As doctors & dentists say, prevention is better than cure! I have had 5 cars in 15 years all with side parking lights using the indicator lever & this is quite a serious omission. I am certain there's a legal issue especially out of town or on carriageways where speed is higher e.g.above 30mph (50kmh) for the requirement of parking lights. The only way round this if it's a short parking time of say 2 hours, is to turn the the lights on to side lights. Long term or overnight will flatten the battery.

We should raise it with the dealers as a safety issue. Lets' hope that with all this tech available that it'sonly a firmware update to enable the side light parking facility amongst other things we discover.

Just turn the light switch from auto to the first position. This will turn on only the city lights and rear lights. You can't select on which side of course.

If I read the link correctly you must use parking lights.
I don't have the English manual here, but it clearly states that the first notch above "auto" are the parking lights. On the light switch.
It is on page 244 in the Dutch manual.

The setting called "front position lights" is called "parkeerlicht" in the Dutch manual. Translated "Parking lights".
Is the official term "Parking lights" in English? Or are they named differently?

I think we are talking about 2 items

When you switch on the parking lights

(dutch) Manual page 244
2.De parkeerlichten voor,
achterlichten, kentekenplaat-
en dashboardverlichting
gaan branden.
(translation)
2.The parking lights for,
Rear lights, license plate-
And dashboard lights
Are going to burn.

(England) Manual page 244
2.The front position, tail,
license plate and instrument
panel lights turn on. (I suppose the rear lights are on to).

If you switch it on then the parking lights
in front and the rear lights are on.

When you switch off the engine and close the doors (warning sound)
then front and rear is on (city lights)
If you have full leds the power consumption is low.
If you don,t have the full leds the consumption must be higher (bulb rear lights).

I can,t make it possible that only the light of one side of the car are working.
I think that is where people talk about and they call it parking lights.

On my Volkswagen and Seat cars you could set the turn signal to either side. However none of my Toyota's had the "one side" feature.
