Blinking RED!

I took my truck to the dealer for 15,000 mi service today and they change the oil and fuel filters and check all the fliuds.Truck ran great and seem to have a bit more power as well!
But,I notice a red light blinking...I think its the alarm lights!!(its down by your left knee) Anyone know how to get it to turn off??
Thanks guys

I'm not positive, but this sounds like one of those alarms the dealers install and then try to sell it to you for an extra 4 or 5 hundred bucks. If you don't buy it they leave it in the vehicle and don't arm it. Problem is, you are looking at a red light for as long as you have the truck or you can remove it and have a nice hole in the dash.

I passed up a deal on a new car about 5 years ago because of this "sales tactic". We had a deal made until they told me they would not replace the dash piece they had drilled for the light because "it was an expensive part". I told them they should sell the car before drilling holes in it that the new owner might not want and walked out of the deal.

BTW - this alarm system they offer is the same as one of those $59 cheapy systems you can buy at any discount parts store.

If what you have in your truck is what I have described, your options are to replace the dash piece they destroyed for you or cover the light with tape or something.

Sorry - Good Luck

if thats what it is, cut the wire to the light, or wire the light to something that you want to have a power indicator on

X2..I was gonna say the same thing...BUT I would make 100% sure that it is only an indicator light and isnt spliced into anything else.
