So this is just a dummy light to make people think it is part of security system? Is there a timer inside the light assembly? If so, check voltage and ground or replace lamp assembly. Does the lamp assembly have a manufacturer name on it, maybe you can email them. I really do not know how that system works? It is interesting.

If your asking it does not appear to be a dummy light. If your telling me that it is, it does no have any type of manufacturer's name or numbers.

I brought up the dummy light because I believe they sell such a lamp for that purpose. If the vehicle does not have a security system, the light will make people think there is a security system.
I will check my wiring diagrams to see if I can find that lamp?

Hey CINDER4062,

Here is a wiring diagram for the alarm system but I don't see a light anywhere, can you remove the bulb socket and test for power with a test light please. Also check all fuses and the relay.

Okay after carefully checking the owners manual I found out that it's referred too as a security light. I then checked all of the fuse locations and didn't see it listed anywhere. Other than taking the whole dash apart I can't seem to find a way to even access the light or any wires that may be attached to it.
