The security indicator light deters potential thieves by indicating that the vehicle is equipped with an immobilizer system. It begins flashing (approximately once every 3 seconds) approximately 60 seconds after the ignition switch is turned from the ON position to the Acc or LOCK position or immediately after the key is pulled out.
Non-turbo models

The security indicator light deters potential thieves by indicating that the vehicle is equipped with an immobilizer system. It begins flashing (approximately once every 3 seconds) approximately 60 seconds after the ignition switch is turned from the ON position to the Acc or LOCK position or immediately after the key is pulled out.

If the security indicator light does not flash, the immobilizer system may not be functioning properly. If this occurs, contact your SUBARU dealer as soon as possible.

In case an unauthorized key is used (e.g., an imitation key), the security indicator light illuminates.

NOTE
For the flashing pattern when arming the alarm system, refer to Arming the system.

Even if the security indicator light flashes irregularly or its fuse blows (the light does not flash if its fuse is blown), the immobilizer system will function normally.
