asked by on February 09, 2017

Hi,

I noticed some days back that when i lock my car now, there is a red light that blinks on the dashboard, this started happening recently. What could be the issue?

Hello - this is not a problem. This is simply the security system indicating that it is "active", after locking your car, and is operating normally.
