It's the engine immobilizer indicator. If it is blinking, your truck won't start.

Are you talking about the car with the key in the middle or the other seatbelt light or the airbag. There are like three or four lights in that general area. One is the passenger seatbelt light(may only come on if someone is in the passenger seat). The other is the passenger air bag seat(it should say on or off) Besides that I have no clue what it could be. I just got mine about a month ago, so I'm still learning.

You are correct sir. I read it wrong.

It means your ejection seat is functioning properly.

all that is is a theft deterant light... Someone would look into your truck and think you have an alarm engaged so they shouldn't screw with breaking into your truck... It does have something to do with the engine immobilizer but really its there as a theft deterant.... Oh and you press it, the roof will fly off of your truck and your passenger seat will fly through the air, hope this helps

Yeah, about 3 weeks ago mine deployed when I was driving in NYC. A Homeless guy came to my window and was about to wash it with a dirty rag and mine just went off. That really pisses me off! I mean does anyone know if Toyota has issues a TSB for this problem?

I can't have my automatic ejection seat going off whenever it wants to! This is a real hazard.

By the way guys, what's the little light on the lower left dash panel with the blinking hand grenade mean?

I don't have my manual in front of me so I can't be 100% sure but I am pretty sure that the blinking hand grenade means that you truck has armed the self destruct. Though I am sure that you'll be able to abort it with 3 tenths of a second left on the countdown like everyone else.
