I am not sure if this subject has been discussed before, so apologies if I am repeating this issue.
Just picked my Golf MK VII today and noticed the red led (alarm) light in the driver's door does not flash when locked but instead the ambient strip light flashed randomly instead.
When I picked the car up, it was daylight so didn't notice led if the LED was flashing. I'm can't remember exactly, but i think the LED stays on constantly when not locked (though not 100% sure on this). I can confirm this tomorrow when I have a chance to play with it.
