Red Dash Light Flashing

I test drove a used 2007 Rubicon this morning and noticed a small red light flashing on the right hand side of the dash above a small gauge. The salesman said he didn't really know what the light was, but said it was probably the alarm/security. The light was only on when the vehicle was running, when turned off and doors closed (locked or unlocked) the light was off. Does anyone know what this flashing light is indicating?

Thanks, Troy

"During normal operation , after turning on the ignition switch, the Vehicle Security Light will remain on for 3 seconds for a bulb check. If the light remains on after the bulb check, it indicates that there is a PROBLEM with the ELECTRONICS. If the Vehicle Security Light turns on during normal vehicle operation ( vehicle running longer than 10 seconds), it indicates that there is a FAULT in the ELECTRONICS". Good luck and you can inform the salesman to have the vehicle serviced.

Thanks KIK. I found it odd for a red light flashing on the dash within the drivers view, and the salesman saying "nothings wrong".
