This is the security indicator light. Designed to alert potential theives that the alarm is active. It is a L.E.D. lamp, and will not drain the aux battery. Nothing to worry about, this is normal. Hope this helps, and Thanks for choosing FixYa!

SOURCE: dash warning light not found in manual - hot to turn it off

The flashing key-inside-a-car means the anti-theft system is working properly. On page 84 of the 2009 Prius owners manual, the explanation indicates that a flashing key-inside-a-car is normal, and is desired. It should extinguish when the automobile is operating. It may be distracting, but it's a good thing!!

SOURCE: 2005 toyota prius abs brake not working warning

Hmm, I'm not sure what a main chip is but, there is a few reasons for this problem.

  1. ABS Sensors - there could be something wrong with a sensor and/or the wiring to them
  2. The wheel bearing speed sensor in a wheel is bad or intermittent which then tells the computer that wheel is traveling at a faster or slower rate of speed then the rest which in then the computer turns the abs light on.
Now when your warning lights go on, the computer sets a DTC code which is the key to helping solve this problem. If you can get the DTC (Data Trouble Code) from the dealership or from someone who can scan your can, I can better assist you in figuring out what's wrong. Hope this helps.

Key light warning on 2005 Toyota Prius dashboard


Interesting. Personally, I would remove the hot side of the battery and leave it off for about 30 minutes and then reconnect it. It sounds like something has corrupted. This will reboot your system.

If that doesn't work...call/write/chat with Toyota and explain what is happening and see if they have a suggestion.

I have a warning light on my 2008 pack 5 PRIUS. It is a red light with a key symbol. This is not the yellow one that comes on when you leave your key in the car. Everything seems fine except for this...


That is the light that tells potential thieves the car has an immobilizer. What you describe is normal operation.

Look in the manual for "immobilizer".
