Just wondering if anyone else has had this happen.
I drive into my garage, turn off the i3 with two pushes of the start/stop button and get out. I usually plug in the EVSE and go in the house, not locking the car. 9 times out of 10, the lights all turn off and the blue ring glows.
I have found a couple of times where the parking lights were all on, hours after leaving the car. Front LEDs and tail lights. I have to lock the car and then unlock to reset them.
Has this happened to anyone else, and why is it happening?? Thanks

I had this happen for the first time a couple of days ago. I have set the lights to flash when I lock the doors. I was preparing to charge our car, so I had to unlock it first using my fob. I started charging and then locked the doors with the fob. Instead of the lights flashing, they turned on and stayed on. I unlocked and relocked which turned off the lights. Weird!

I am having some weird stuff going on with my i3 as well the last few days. While driving my door first unlock then after a minute or so it locked itself again without me pressing anything. this morning after charging for about an hour at public charging station, my settings seemed to changed, FM radio settings, A/C settings.. then when I was parking at the work I noticed the lines on the camera monitor are gone. I am not really sure what is going on but this stuff started going on Saturday, 10/24.
