this is a sign that there is a problem with the communications in the car, could be a few things at fault, you would need to read the codes with a good scantool, not a generic thing that cannot interperet the manufacturer specific codes. This should point you in the right direction regarding where the fault lies.

Happened to me the other day .. Kinda wondering if maybe it wasnt the first time, as very occasionally, the key fails to start the car ... ie, turns and turns and turns, but no start. As soon as you turn the key to off, then try to start again, works perfectly. the light is supposed to be the light it signals alarm/imob state, so perhaps linked .. Had any problems starting lately?

That sounds like an ABS module problem. Does you A/C work?
