If you have a small odd shaped key on the keyring there is a socket under the steering wheel (in the plastic housing) which mine fitted. By turning the key left or right in the socket it resets the light. I found that the flashing light indicated that the alarm had been triggered at some time when I had been away from the car and had switched itself off after a time. If you have this key you could try that.

There is a blue light flashing on rear view mirror. Why?


Usually a flashing blue light is from an aftermarket installed alarm system or remote starter.
You may want to check your owners manual if the light is in the mirror glass.

Is it the old style key? if so does the red light flash on it when you press the unlock/lock buttons?
