According to Ford materials, when the light starts blinking, ‘…the pony is ready to run.’ O.C.

What does the blinking button mean?

The changes made to the ignition button on the 2018 Ford Mustang are just one of several for the new model year. Made of spun aluminum, the backlighting feature adds to the mystique of the vehicle. When the door is unlocked, the button will start blinking red; indicating the car is ready to start and take its driver on an adventure. However, it’s important to point out that the blinking red ignition button for the 2018 Ford Mustang is purely decorative. There is no diagnostic meaning behind it.

Buyers of the 2018 Ford Mustang are also getting a highly customizable sports coupe. The 12-inch LCD screen replacing the center gauge cluster can be set up to display several configurable views. Furthermore, the display can be divided into three separate views for even more customization. This ability to choose which kinds of information can be viewed comes in handy when drivers start utilizing the three driving modes of the car, normal, sport and track. These settings can be saved and instantly called up for different drivers with the new memory settings that have been added.
