Default new rookie owner, dash light question

2003 base coupe. Itís the small led light above the dash light adjustment **** in the middle of the picture. I drove it for the first time to the gas station today and it was a solid green normally, but would turn red intermittently while trying to tell me something I wasnít understanding. I came right home and canít find it in my owners manual. I know....dumb question Iím sure, but I will know the car inside out eventually . Thanks.

I don't believe that's a factory light. Are there any aftermarket systems installed that you know of (possibly an alarm)?

Maybe an aftermarket radar detector...stealth mode?

^This. I have an afterrnarket radar/laser jammer that a PO installed on my car and looks similar, albeit the install on your's in cleaner. Blow by a cop at 100 and see what happens!

Hey vwtdi, look in the openings for your radiators up front. Do you see any sensors in there that look like the attached? This is a photo of a laser jammer sensor, but you might also have a radar detector sensor up there as well which would look a little different.

You guys are good. I have something similar to Dr Strangelove's picture on both sides. When it goes off (which seems like a lot), it turns red, beeps, and also has voice once in a while. I may have to find a way to turn it off. Here it is.
