    First I would check for codes I put up a video here this explains it that is the starting of possibly finding out the problem http://youtu.be/bSMPerLndwU

    My security lamp does the same thing I checked my codes and what it is is a interruption from the antenna to the alarm system seems to cause no harm it just is on sometimes I figure one of these days I'll clean the plug where the alarm which I believe is on top of the computer box which is on top of the battery how clean those clean the plug ,,,don't forget to pull up your codes that may help you narrow down the idol problem
