Introduction

Hi All,
I'm Al (Alun) just had my first Berlingo. Bought it from a garage and so far have no problems, quite a nice car. Having to get used to manual box as previous car was Range Rover auto, very nice to drive, very comfy, VERY expensive to run. It had to go as the security systems were playing up and I was constantly being shut out and had to reinstall the code. Also it was running battery flat if left for day or two. The Berlingo seems a far simpler beast as mine does not have all the clever things that appear essential on modern cars. Even I do not need a warning that my ignition key is in. I found this site while looking for help about fitting parking sensors. I've just realised how daft this sounds after what previously said but having grandchildren who "appear" behind the car suddenly I feel that a warning is desirable. Anyway hope to chat here and find the site really useful.
Best wishes, Al

Welcome to the site Al, a step down in luxury, but a step up in value for money. Which one do you have, surprised you don't get a warning for the key being in the ignition.

Welcome Al. I don't get a warning either when I open the door with the key still in the ignition. Maybe I'll have to get out the Lexia and see if that can be turned on and off.

90% sure it can, the seatbelt warning too!

Welcome to the forum, maybe a step down in style but a massive step up in practicality, I sold a Jag to get my Mulitispace!

Noow you've made me think. I do get a warning when I open the door also I get a visual seat belt warning but not audible one. With the old car I got BEEP BEEP BEEP then the screen warning IGNITION KEY INSERTED. As I say even I know when I've put the key in. The Citroen is surprisingly NOT UNcomfortable and certainly does not roll on corners as much. Does not have the acceleration past 65mph that the RR had but as 70 is fast enough for me I can live with that. I also don't have a computer now to tell me I'm getting 19.7 mpg. The only slight minus is the road noise from the back of the car which may get irksum on a long run. Thanks for welcome.

Hi Al and welcome to the forum.

You should get an audible seatbelt warning but I think that it only sounds once you drive off. Berlingos are not without their quirks and foibles (as you can see from this forum) but I would still bet that they are more reliable than the average RR.

Good luck with it

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.
