Shortly after buying my car, I noticed after setting the alarm that the central display led ring would pulsate for a short while.
But noticed yesterday that this no longer happens.
I checked the settings so that the central display was checked as Event display and the heartbeat box was ticked.

Still no heartbeat? Am I missing something?

It only beats for a short while after the car is locked-not sure how long but if you go back and check it it may have gone off?

Another thought - just to remove it as an issue. Each key has it's own individual programming. Have you tried your other key to see if the issue still persists?

Yes, I realise it only stays on for a short while, I have watched and waited as I locked the car. Still nothing.
Reference the keys, I have only ever used the one set.
Am I missing something in the settings.? It does have to be set to Event view with heartbeat boxed ticked? Right?????

I noticed that it only pulses when I'm stood behind the car - I.e. within range of the parking sensors. Over the course of 5 minutes it slows down, like it's going to sleep. If you walk away, it stops completely, and only the alarm LED under the rear-view mirror flashes.

Try it - lock your car (press lock once), then walk behind the car; he'll know you're checking him out ;)

So, how about the cars without parking sensors like mine? I don't think is has anything to do with the sensors or the key being in range. The heartbeat just starts after locking the car and stays on for a couple of minutes regardless of your presence.

Sorry to bump an old thread, but I believe the heartbeat pulses when I lock the car if I leave the lights on auto. Can anyone else confirm?
