Blinking red light by brake pedal??????

When my truck is turned on there is a blinking red light that flashes by my brake pedal. ANYONE know what it is??? I just noticed it today. Anyone else have this and if so what is it there for.

Now before anyone starts on me, I know he has an 08. However, my alarm light is under my steering column on the little cover thingy. It's red and it blinks.

Not that I know of...but I am always liking to learn odd things like this, in case it comes up again in the future.

Now, that was my first thought. In DEI's (Viper, Python, etc.) aftermarket alarms, the "shock sensor" is a clear plastic rectangle that has a red LED that blinks whenever it is activated.

TSEMP, do you have an aftermarket alarm in it?

Mine is a FOMOCO alarm with just a little red light. It was put there by the dealership though.

I dont have an after market alarm. This is something factory. This is a blinking red light that is on by the brake pedal when the truck is running. If I didnt know any better Id think it was a bomb. I know its not but hope someone can give me the answer.
