    Security light (Key symbol) flashing

    Just wondering if anyone may have had their security light flashing when the key is removed from the ignition. The problem started last night after I parked for the night, and still continued this morning when I went to start it. When the car is started the light is not on and I did not notice anything different while driving it. I will be taking it in to have it checked out hopefully soon.

    Thanks.

    While I don't own my 5 yet, my wife's Solara does the same thing. It's normal. It's a "theft deterent".

    Check to see if your owners manual says anything about it

    yea it's normal, the light flashes in my mom's tribute every about 2-3 seconds, makes people think that the car has an alarm (which it really does )

    FYI if you are cranking the car and the light remains flashing you will not be able to start the car.... your key lost its code or a problem somewhere else.

    Yup I have seen it....
