It's probably the third brake light. The headliner must be loose and you can see the light from the backside. Sit in the car and hit the brake, does it flash?


no there is a little thing that has 3 lights and there is just 1 flashing red

Sorry, no clue then, check your owners manual, maybe there is a mention of it.

it is your ultrasonic rear park assist- when it works normally, it would light 2 orange lights before the red one comes on- when the red comes on you shouldn't back up any farther or you will hit the object behind you- if it stays flashing all the time you either have a problem with the assist, or if you have a receiver hitch in the back, take the end with the ball out of it and see if it stops flashing. I hope this helps.
