Message indicator light flashing
« on: January 10, 2016, 11:44:30 pm »
Hi my message indicator light in between the temp gauge & petrol gauge in my ford Galaxy 2006 2.0l mk3 flashes red after 45 sec when the car is locked, the battery must be draining somewhere. Took to ford garage done a dianostic check no faults showed. Does not come on while car on & driving. Does anyone have any ideas...?

Is this not just an indicator that the immobiliser/alarm is working?

I _think_ that's normal.
