Hi,
My name is ***** ***** I will try to help.
The alarm system service light is on because the battery back up in your alarm siren has gone flat. I would suggest to try using the cars for a week and see if the normal use recharges it. If it doesn't it will require a new one, sometimes they will recharge but sometimes they won't depending on how flat they were.
I hope this helps.
