    Does it blink ALL the time? Or just when you unlock/lock your car, turn off your car, and/or open your door? My '02 does it too, and it's normal. However, if it's blinking all the time, there may be an issue.

    It means the alarm is armed.

    yea I suppose mine has been blinking this whole time and i never paid any attention to it. I have had the car for 3 yrs now I can't believe I didn't notice it blinking. I guess with getting ready to graduate from college I didn't notice it. Thanks for the input guys really appreciate it!

    Similar Blinking Security Issue

    Fellas,

    I have the same issue. I've owned the car for nearly 2 years and it just started today. I'm confident the Security Light wasn't blinking previously. It doesn't seem to affect locking/unlocking/securing the car but is this really normal? Or is this an indication that something is wrong. Could this possibly put an unnecessary strain on the battery?

    Similar Blinking Security Issue

    Fellas,

    I figured it out. Apparently I managed to hold the key fob Unlock button down for 2+ seconds with the driver door open. That put the car into Valet mode. Undoing it was via the same procedure.

    What is Valet mode you ask? I imagine it's setting that limits the cars range in terms of distance it can travel or maybe rev's. If you turn your car over to a valet it's some assurance that they can't take off joy riding or hot rodding around the parking lot. Someday I'll check the manual.

    If you had a cobb AP the valet mode map on that would have those features.

    The valet mode of your key pad will set it so when you lock your car, the alarm is never armed, so they can use a key to unlock and get into your car, with out them having the keypad.

    Valet?

    So I just bought an 04 wrx and it didn't come with a key fob and the security
    Light flashes constantly doesn't matter if the car is running or anything it is always flashing. Does this mean it's in valet mode?
