Small red lamp by digital clock is on constantly.

Asked by Jan 11, 2012 at 05:46 AM about the 1999 Ford Mondeo

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Instead of blinking when the doors are locked, the red lamp is on all the time. I recently had a new battery installed but it seems to drain as the motor does not start immediately after standing for a night or so. Does the fault lie in the start relay? Can anyone explain what a patch is?  Thanks
