blinking red car light on the speedometer

Hi Folks, I just bought a Nissan Versa S 2012 last weekend. This morning I noticed a blinking red car light on the speedometer, which came on when the engine was shut off/lights off/doors closed. I checked the manual but the nearest reference I could find was key/car security light. Since the red car icon just blinks on for a second I wasn't sure if there was a key too but I think not? Anyone got any suggestions? Thank you in advance!

Most likely it will show a car and have a key in the middle. That is to show you that the car is armed with imobilizer. Prevents theft.

*my car also does it, flash that light

Thank you both!!

Wow thanks guys, what a relief! There wasn't a key in this car icon/light so I thought it was pointing to trouble for sure!
