1993 Toyota Previa Question: red light next to steering wheel on(what is this??) and random failure to start

My van has not started twice now, once after a lengthy drive the other time i may have had a lengthy drive, and now i notice that a red, seeming random light, next to steering wheel but not really associated with dash, is on.... what is this light and could it be connected to unknown starting problem? -
Answer 1
Could it possibly the security system light. If it was tripped it will not allow the van to start. I don't know all the reasons it could trip but I know that stereo removal will do it. -
