I started to notice this light after I had my oil and filter changed but can't say actually how long this has been going on. My old focus had a blinking red light when the engine was off and the doors were locked. Does anyone know if this is some kind of security light similar to my old 2002 focus or something I should take to the dealer? There is nothing wrong with the car after I start it.. no warning or information type messages. thank you...
That blinking light indicates the Passive Anti-Theft System, or PATS for short, is activated. The light will begin to flash when the Focus is shut off and locked.
Have a relaxing weekend!
