    Flashing 'Key'/Security Light

    I had to call the AA out to start my car after a flooding, and ever since, I have noticed a 'flashing key' type light on the dashboard when the car isn't running.
    Is that normal?
    Never noticed it before!

    Normal. As long as the car starts, you imobilizer system (flashing key) is working.

    Thanks for that. Would the light not drain the battery after a few days?

    No, you will be fine. It flashes as a deterrent to let would be thieves know that the car is equiped with a security system.
