    Please could members advise on possible causes and options for latest electrical problem with my 320CDi 2004 estate purchased two months ago. Faulty alternator has been replaced under warrenty after battery discharged in one week max.Problem now is that when car is locked,the exterior and interior lights start flashing after ten minutes or sometimes longer.The alarm does not sound though.Could be consumer or a sensor I suppose.Anyone had similar problem?

    Sounds remarkably like the issue that afflicts W203's......faulty alarm siren.

    Do a search on W203 lights flashing :)
