What does the security Warning Light mean?

The security Warning Light is located on your instrument panel. When the security Warning Light is illuminated, that means that the theft-deterrent system may not be working properly. Tip Like all warning lights, the security Warning Light will briefly illuminate when your vehicle is turned on. The light is only a problem if it stays lit when the engine is running.
