Our 97 SLE loaded with options. Keyless and VATs. When we start the car the security light stays on for like 10-15 minutes then goes off. It never flashes when driving and always starts right up. It doesn't seem to hurt anything but I hate to have lights on in the dash
Also as I side note...if you open the trunk wih the key it sets off the alarm. I don't have the keyless remote like my wife so I always forget and set off the alarm...is that normal? I don't remember my other Bonneville'* doing this.
