That would be my guess as well.
Look, if you've never seen that before, it can be kinda freaky. About 10
years ago, I bought an Eagle Vision (version of the Dodge Intrepid) used. I
didn't have a garage at that time, and that first night it snowed. Through
the snow on the windshield, you could see something red flashing. It took a
scan of the owner's manual to determine it was the anti-theft system - I had
never had a car with that before.
This is quite an interesting situation. It is indeed an anti-theft lamp as
other posters have suggested.
This lamp exists because Hyundai had numerous complaints that people
couldn't tell whether the anti-theft system was armed, and that other cars
had an LED for this purpose. Now we have people not understanding why
there's a flashing red lamp on their dash. I chalk it up to not being
able to satisfy everyone.
