Strange dashboard icon


Was driving the other day and noticed a padlock symbol being displayed in the corner of the dashboard. Couldn't work out what it was. Wasn't the door locking mechanism.

Turned the engine off and restarted and it went away. Not seen it since

Any ideas?

If it is the icon with a padlock and a little 'half a car'

EITHER the alarm is not working

OR the alarm has been activated.

No it doesn't make sense to me either, but there you go.

Mine does this occasionally. Think it means the alarm is not armed.

Hoped it was nothing to worry about. Am not concerned as was driving at the time, and hopefully no-one will break in then
