Hi all,

I have a 2015 Odysset EX-L with around 6K miles. Today after locking the car I do see a red light blinking from the instrument panel. Haven't seen that before. I checked the Honda manual for what it is, but was not able to find any information regarding it.

Based on some forum, I checked the doors and windows and they are closed well. Below is the one I am talking about. Pardon the image quality, as its dark out there.

Here is the red circle light that I am talking about.

Thank you!!
I never noticed this before. I was at the impression that this is some alert/warning that started all of a sudden.

I do not agree with all these answers. The security on indicator light is a very small red light near the radio. The light everyone is talking about on the dash near the middle is an indication of a problem with the security system. Mine showed up after I replaced the battery. I had never seen it before. It appears after I lock the doors with the key fob and activate the alarm system. My alarm keeps going off randomly now. Anybody else? Thanks.

Welcome to Odyclub! :)

Straight from the 2015 owner's manual - page 79
153863

And then from page 135:
153864

And page 136:
153865


That light in the instrument panel is definitely a "system on" indicator. Now, why your alarm keeps going off randomly is a different issue. Let's try to figure that one out, because that would be annoying as hell.

That particular blinking red light is the radio anti-theft light. It warns a theft that the radio requires a special security code for it to work, so don't bother stealing it.
