This is the factory installed "Security" light. It blinks to let you know that the security system is active, and to ward off potential theives. It's part of the factory anti-theft system. Also, it is a diode, and consumes virtually no battery power.
Normal condition; nothing to worry about.

Red warning light staying on


That can be a small problem like a loose wire or a sensor that is out.. sometimes if a warning bulb is out on dash it will send a signal to the engine light to illuminate.. if its blinking that isa major problem.. sometimes even getting oil changed or leaving a gas cap open or broken can cause the llightto go off. Is there any symptoms associated with the blinking light?

Flashing red circle light in the centre of the dash cluster. No mention of this light in the ford manual. What is it?


Hi:
The only red warning light that is in the center of the dash is either the brake warning light or possibly the low tire pressure light?

Here is a link to the manual online, and you can look thru the warning light descriptions and actually search this electronic document:
