security indicator light on dash flashing
I have a 2016 Forester. Up until this morning I never saw an indicator light
flashing on the dash. I have read many contradictory posts on the net none of
them clear. What is the status of this light? Should it be on while the car's not
locked? Should it flash faster when locked? Why was it not on before today
and how did it get activated.
Take it back to your local Subaru Dealer. It's under warranty. If it's supposed to be doing that for some reason they'll explain it to you. HTH. -Jim
If the car starts and runs ,,, you can assume it's not a valid security fault...I would take it in under warranty ...
If it is the green security light it is supposed to flash as a deterrent.
It is a red light. It was not flashing until today. There is a valet mode. I must have been in it. How I changed it is unknown and nobody has an easy or correct answer. The car manual is confusing and the internet full of contrary posts. At one point the manual says to reference a certain page and that page then says to reference the previous page.@#$%^
Your dealer can help you sort it out.
I prefer to set them in the "occasional flashing when locked" state which you've stumbled upon. Enjoy....
