Question about 2008 Toyota Prius
A warning light with a key inside a car is flashing on the dash. It goes off when the key is inserted (2008 Prius). Nothing in the owner's manual about this light. It is distracting. What does it mean? Mary
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!!

On my old 2001 Prius that means the door is not locked. It is blinking when the car is closed and not locked.
