That's it! If the doors are not locked the light doesn't flash. With
the doors locked it does flash. What would be the purpose of this?
(The doors can be locked using the switch on the door to do this also).

The flashing of the lights is tied to the alarm engaging, not the
doors locking. Normally the alarm engages when you lock the doors from
the remote, but it can't do that (for obvious reasons) when the hood
or trunk is open. So instead, it waits patently for all the car's
openings to be secured, and engages the alarm at that time.
(Now of course, on my Elantra, the alarm doesn't go off when the trunk
is opened, so I'm not quite sure why it bothers to wait for the trunk
to be closed.
I'm not sure if it was a misunderstanding at all, but the lights also
wait until I close my trunk before flashing, so it is being monitored.
It's just that the monitor is only used to engage the alarm, not to
trigger it. That's what baffles me.
