Flashing red light on dash when car is off?

The flashing red light means your security system is working. It is nothing to worry about. Most cars now have flashy lights to deter thieves.

My battery went dead bought new battery now alar system wontb let car stat an alarm keeps going off

since the alarm is sounding I am assuming this is an aftermarket alarm system

if it where the factory system the vehicle would not start but the alarm shouldn't sound

do you have a little red light on the dash flashing somewhere....if so then there is a kill switch somewhere on the vehicle... look under the dash

1997 Mazda Miata button with red light lower left Dash

That toggle switch is for the security system. That year miata never came with any switches for the soft top of any kind. Most likely that is an aftermarket alarm system. Most factory alarm systems do not come with a toggle switch.

I cannot help you with the mechanic in dallas but if you have an auto zone near you they will test it for free and that way you know what it needs to repair it and get the service soon light off and you can repair it yourself and for the A/C you can repair that too because your car has 134-A and you can get it for $6.00 a can at dollar general and I want you to hang in there it is no bed of roses here in michigan I work on peoples cars up here and half of them are not able to pay me for doing the repairs it's hard times for everyone right now but if we believe things will change

Won't start

Hi, I understand you have a problem with the alarm.
If the alarm is activated, and if the alarm is aftermarket you have a valet switch , That you can use to deactivate, or put in by pass. just you need to locate, is a little switch going from the alarm module to a dash or any strategic location.
When you found turn the key to run position them move or press the switch. and everything has to stop blinking.
If you are unable to find the switch, put the in on position,
Them go to front and remove the negative battery cable, wait 1 minute and reconnect, them try to start.
But if the alarm is a Factory alarm and you don't have the remote control. you can try deactivate with the key in the door lock cylinder. turning from lock to unlock position.
But remember this model of trucks, they use a chip on the key
If you don't have a key with chip it's gonna do theis problem.

I hop this solve your problem. Thank for using fixya.
