Default Red light with key logo blinking on dash

Hi fellow GX owners, my 08 has this blinking red light with key logo on my dash, when I lock it through the key, it stays on and does not blink.
No problem with starting, steering wheel, and keys has new batteries.

Please give me some inputs before I take it to the dealer.

Thanks! Much appreciated!

Have to double check, let's you know alarm is set, if you lock with key, not sure, but maybe alarm does not set.

Your immobilizer was flashed and it is still in a programming mode. To close it just turn the key on/off quickly for about 10 times until the light stop blinking. Just make sure to insert each key you have in the ignition for few seconds. The one with the gray head(valet key) must be last. If you have any questions just PM me.

Bodik...it is 10 Seconds on the wait period ( i am sure that's a typo).

Blustone...check the Owners Manual, it has the method done step by step.
