Warning sound for left on headlights

I have just bought a 2007 used Fiat Grande Punto Active and if I leave the headlights on, turn the engine off and open the door there isn't a warning sound to let me know the lights are still on. Does anyone know if there is supposed be a warning sound?

Cos the lights on the gp don't stay on without the ignition being on. Only way to make them stay on is by using the follow me home function by pulling left indicator stalk, each pull shows a time increment on dash. Up to about 4.5 mins.

what he said ^^

The lights go off when you turn the ignition off even if the light switch is left 'on' so there is no chance of the lights being left on and draining the battery

As above The lights go out with the ignition the only other way of leaving them on (asides from the follow me home function ) is to turn the lights to off then put them back on to activate the Parking lights)

if you want to leave parking lights on then when you turn the engine off turn the lights off and on again and they will come on
