Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I just recently purchased an Estima 2008 ACR50. There's a warning light that keeps blinking when the car is turned off, but goes away when the car is started. It is in a shape of a car and what appears to be a key in the middle. Does anyone know what this warning light mean?

SOURCE: Red blinking warning light beside clock in center of dash. What is it?

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.

SOURCE: 2008 Scion TC Warning Light

This is already covered in the owner's manual, but here it is again as a quick reference.

Every 5,000 miles, a "Maintenance Required" light will blink for the first couple seconds after you start your car. It will continue to do so until it is reset. If it is not reset, than it will eventually turn on your "Check Engine" light. The purpose of the maintenance required light is to remind TC owners to change their oil. The factory recommended interval is 5,000 miles, but you can reduce the interval the light will come on to a mileage interval of your choice.

1. Before starting, make sure that the odometer is not on one of the trip mileage odometers but is displaying the standard odometer.

2. With the car off, press and hold down the odometer reset button. While still holding it, start the car.

3. The light should continue to blink for a couple seconds and than disappear. That will reset the light for another 5,000 miles.

4. The following are steps to change the interval in which the maintenance required light comes on. Right after you turn on the ignition while holding the reset button, you'll notice that the odometer display will show 5 bars. Each bar corresponds to a 1,000 miles. As each bar disappears, the interval will increase (0 bars = 5k, 1 bar = 4k). Release the reset button at the interval you desire.

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!!

Ground problem. Your ground for the radio is right behind the radio or to the left at the steering column base. Loosen and retighten the bolt. Could also be an internal radio problem/solder joint/chip. I fix my own radios, because they are mine and I have time. Parts are cheap. Most people go with after market before they want to pay my price.

We just purchased a 2008 Audi a4. Sometimes when I drive the "Middle brake light warning" comes on and beeps. The car recently had a 20k service, new tires and new brakes done before we purchased it.


if it is a 2008 why don't you ask a dealer? it has to be under warranty. Asking an audi mechanic is light years ahead in common sense as opposed to asking strangers to look in a crystal ball.
