Hi postieman64, that's economy mode working. The battery light flashes to show eco mode is working and some of the electrical items have been switched off. Eco mode is only supposed to work after about 20-30mins of leaving the ignition on and the engine not running. Starting the engine clears the eco mode timer, and the light should stop flashing.
