    If you open the door of the copen with the head lights on there is a "pipping" sound to warn you that you are leaving the car but have left the lights on. Turn the lights off before opening the door and you wont hear it.:)

    Check your fog light switch isn't on.

    but dont do that, since the car locks itself after 30 seconds if you forget.

    That's worth knowing I'll be careful of that in future.:)
    The doors don't lock if you leave the car unlocked with the roof down, not much point I suppose. My previous convertible had dead locks, much more secure than the Copen. Not just for parking with the roof down but deadlocks stop anybody smashing a window and getting in. All cars should have them.
