This is the vehicle alarm system light. It flashes to let you know the alarm system is enabled. When you lock the car the light will illuminate steady for several seconds and then flash repeatedly until the vehicle is unlocked again. In the Australian model there is no option to disable the passenger airbag so only this light appears on that side of the dash panel.

Hi❗
One of the reasons the LED keeps flashing for a long time (I think this is what you are experiencing) is when the second key is left inside the car.

I did a quick check and could also hear an intermittent beep along with the continuous flashing.

Please do update us on what you find.

No. Read your owners manual. The page I posted is from the US manual.

If a keyless entry fob is left in the vehicle and sensed by the vehicle antenna system and you attempt to lock the car with a fob or by pressing the door switches (where installed) the car will not lock and you will hear an audible warning from the car in the form of beeps from the vehicle horn.

The beep will most likely be an audible warning as the system has detected a fob inside the cabin was used to lock the car and the audible warning is to tell you that the arming of the alarm is in progress. If you were to open the door to exit without turning the alarm off you will trigger the alarm and get flashing indicators and horn as if someone was attempting to break into the car. If you lock the car from outside with the fob the internal beep may not be present. My previous Pajero/Montero exhibited the beeping behaviour though it had a premium OEM alarm with ultrasonic sensors inside the cabin.
