This is perfectly normal, it's showing that the security system is functional. Do you have the CVT transmission, and how do like it. Mine runs great. And, do you have a lot of miles on your car? Remember, regardless of mileage, changing the timing belt and water pump between 7 and 8 years is good insurance that you won't break a belt.
