When the car is locked and alarmed should the light in the middle of the windscreen flash red intermittently to show that the vehicle is alarmed- I only ask because that's what the light on my xf used to do

If you arm the car and set the alarm the red light will flash on the dash just behind the steering wheel.

Can't speak for what happens with ICTP, but if you have ICT then the alarm 'armed' light flashes within the left-hand speedometer dial of the main instrument cluster. The small bump in the centre of the dashboard, near the bottom of the windscreen is, I believe, just a sensor . . it doesn't flash (like happens on some other vehicles)

Same for ITCP for location but mine flashes?

Found it!! But what a stupid place to have an indication that the alarm is on! You have to have your face pressed up against the window to see if the car alarm is on
Surely the ideal place should be easily visible from outside the car, so you can check its locked from a distance

That's what the app is for! I regularly use it as a "did I lock the car?" check.

Also currently I am parking the car a mile from home (see previous key loss saga) so the app is being used a few times a day to check it's not been stolen!

The app, when it finally "talks" to the car is one long winded way to find out if car is locked I agree, however when checking the car is locked when in driveway etc surely a more visible sign is a better option?

But why then have a tiny light on instrument panel telling you it's locked? Pointless!

I guess since I park on the street often not outside my house I am more used to using the app which I found a great tool. I get your point though for all you lucky driveway owners.

I am sure if you speak to a local car alarm specialist they will be able to fit you a light in a suitable position your happy with ;)
