Your car comes standard with a handy Anti-theft system called SecuriLock®. When you lock the doors and activate the Anti-theft system, the light will show in the dash. It should flash slowly, which indicates that the system is operating normally. If the light does not flash, then the security system is not armed. Recheck the system to make sure that you’ve activated it.
