It is warning thieves that you have a theft alarm system. Don't touch this or the alarm will sound.

Thank you for the answer but I don't have an alarm I say wit ignition turned all the way before actually cranking to start for 10 minutes still blinking will it drain my battery?


That should only be a small LED light and it can blink for two weeks before it thinks of draining your battery


And your car at night year probably does have an alarm system that will drive you crazy at certain times

Thank u very much for your help greatly appreciated


Do you have a remote to open your doors unlock your doors
