The 1g (95-00) model, has a red "dot" on the gauge cluster, towards the upper right side, near the temp gauge. You won't see it until it lights up. Not a "clear button" that blinks red. I think you've got an aftermarket alarm in there. The only button above the wheel, is the hazard button, which is a plain black push button. The steering wheel shroud is a common place to drill for that button. If you remove the screws below the steering wheel, that shroud will come right off, and you can trace the wires from that "button" down to the aftermarket alarm module.
I DO NOT RESPOND TO UNSOLICITED PRIVATE MESSAGE FOR HELP. KEEP IT IN THE FORUMS.
