The security light should only flash when the door is open. Once the door is closed, it will go out until the key is turned in the door. At this point the alarm is armed and the light will remain solid for...like...a min or something. It stays lit for a min or so just so you know it's set...this also gives you a min to grab your keys out of it if you locked them in there. Once the light goes out, the security system is armed and the alarm will go off flashing the lights, honking the horn and engaging the ignition immobilizer until you use the key to unlock the door.

I had to learn all this the hard way...had it going off in a parking lot when I first got my first Z31 and didn't know how to get it to go off...rather funny in hind-sight...

Mine flashes pretty consistently unless the doors are locked. Open or closed. Might be a door switch malfunction, but then why would it stop after I locked the doors.....
