Default Security Light coming on, car is dinging

several times a day while I'm driving the car the security light will come on for 1-2 seconds then go out, followed by a chime....

any ideas where to start?

You installed an Aeroforce

Pat will have a good answer for you if you can meanwhile unhook the Aeroforce to ensure that when it'* unhooked that the problem doesn't occur.

yuppers

i had the security light issue with the Aeroforces

so if you read the Aeroforce Box you will read that some of the 2003 and newer GM Trucks, and the Corvette experience "dash lights" when the Aeroforce is installed, this is becasue the Data bus system in the car dosent like being scanned

the correct fix is to set the data rate of the Aeroforce to 3 or higher.

I did this and it fixed my intermittend Security light

Quickest check is to run with it unplugged for a little while. It the problem no longer persists..it'* the Aeroforce.

I believe you can download a manual from their site.
