    What does this dashboard light mean? Car with a lock on it?

    I just seen this icon light up on my dashboard for the first time yesterday:

    I had no idea what it meant so I made sure to check all of my windows, doors and hood to see if they were open while I was driving. When I stopped the car, got out and checked everything and started back up, the light went away. I am curious to know what it meant and if I fixed the problem or if it was a sensor error. Thanks!

    Its your "Content Theft-Deterrent" Light. Pg. 2-20 in the 06 Manual.

    Did your car alarm go off accidentally? My Sonoma pick up would flash the same type of light if I stalled out and restarted quickly.

    I didn't know I had a factory alarm? I bought the car used, and I even went by the GM dealer to see if my G6 had a remote for the doors and the guys there didn't even know.

    Well what good are they?

    So you never got a remote? I'm almost positive you can get one. I think all G6 came with one new. If you have Power Doors... you should be able to get one.

    That is what I said. I just gave up, and yes I have power doors. Plus he said if there was a remote option that it would cost hundreds of dollars for the remote and programming (if available). He wanted to hook my car up to a computer to see which required a long wait. I just said forget it.

    If your key has a little plus "+" sign on it with a circle around it, you can get the auto start, although, I'm not sure how much that costs to add on.

    I'd go to another dealership. Maybe get a fob off ebay and get it programmed there.

    Its for the alarm and it does flash. Once you lock the car, it will flash while the car is locked until it is unlocked.

    It should work. Just have to get it programmed. That's not an autostart fob, but if you're not worried about it then whatev.

    I just remembered that I had planned on getting a Viper alarm system and was going to use its remote for the doors and stuff. Is that the better route? Thanks for your responses so far guys.

    you should be able to grab a GM remote pretty easy. I'd be pretty certain you 6 has a alarm system with it.

    However, I had the same light on my car stay lit after the car was started and was in gear. strange

    I've dealt with them twice for my company's Camry and have been beyond pleased. Checked the prices of the remotes and you'd be paying anywhere between $70 and $40--depending if you're remote-start capable or not and if you have to have a "pristine" one or one with a few dings. Both remotes I ordered for the company's camery have lasted (one of them was a spare, so the 2nd order was not for a defective remote), so it's not inferior quality.

    Those prices are without programming. Their site has a link to find a "locksmith" who can programi it, or you have to take it into a dealer.

    Hope that helps.
