That is the PATS System LED. Did you drop the ignition key at any time. It could be a broken transponder in the key. Switch the ignition to 'ON' position, the LED will flash quickly for a few seconds and then it should flash up a fault code. A long flash and then between one and five quick flashes. These problems could range from a broken key transponder; and open circuit between the key reader and the ECU/ PCM. It could also be a fuse or a relay.
