when it turns red it is arming the security system- when it is blinking, it is warning potential thieves that the alarm is active- it shuts off because when you unlock the car, you are disarming the security system.

The point we are all Making is the red light never use to be on. So how do we dis arm or turn it off. Go to a use car lot, none of the red lights are flashing
