Default ticking emergency lights after fuel filter replacement

Could anybody help me with this.

I replaced the fuel filter today, went okay.

However, after I started the engine and checked for leaks, something strange started to happen - the emergency lights and also the dash panel lights now turn on and off with a ticking sound. They do so at a slower frequency than when you switch on the emergency button. Starting or shutting down the engine does not help. I also found no mention of such behavior in the manual.

Please, help me!

Your flashers? Did you un-hook the battery? If so, just hit your transmitter locking the doors, unlock, and all should be fine.

If that's not what you're talking about, I don't have a clue. A fuel filter change with no leaks afterwords should be without issues.

Thanks, that was it. Had hard time finding the transmitter and then the batteries for it - have not used it for quite some time. Thanks again.
