Accidentally triggered the alarm by unlocking my Madza 3 using a car key, get on the driver seat, locked the car using car key as well and start the engine. Continuous alarm for about 30 seconds with double signal light triggered as well.

So after driving home and locked the car, noticed the immobilizer icon and a unknown red light behind steering blinking continuously. Anyone experience this and any solution on how to turn off these two lights?

If I am not mistaken, after locking my car, there will be no light blinking...

Incorrect. When you close all doors, lock it, the blinking light will flash rapidly for ~ 30 seconds. During that time, the car is letting you know the the alarm is about to be set. Once the rapid light stops, it'll flash quickly every every 3 to 4 seconds until the car is unlocked and started. The flashing red light blinking every 3 to 4 seconds is suppose to deter potential thieves from breaking into the car......

The red security light also flashes every so often when the car is left unlocked.
