Does anyone know what this is ?

Whenever I start the car, I notice this red light flash 3 times, but cannot find anything on what it does? I looked up the light switch and there are a lot of them out there that have the same little light.
Any insight ?

That's aftermarket, not OEM.

You are going to have to take apart the lower dash and trace the wires and find out where they go to figure out what it is.

probably aftermarket security system or leftover breathalizer parts.

I agree, looks like security system light. Although since these models came with security sytem already (at least mine did) I am not sure why you would add one.

I knew a few guys in the early 2000's that were having aftermarket security installed just for the remote start feature.

My 107 had a radar detector with similar lights (3). built-in the console next to the A/C controls. Also had front and back antennas hidden under the car.
