although my 2009 gauges look different then the 2013 model
my light is almost exactly where yours is in that video

i was told by the Independent alarm guy that works for the Dodge Dealer here
that the light in the instrument cluster is not for anything to do with BREAKING IN
It is actually connected to the ignition, it won't allow the Ram to start without someone having the FOBs chip either in the key slot or held really close to the key slot as something is used to turn the slot to the Start position.
A Starter Immobilizer, if that is a correct term

I wanted a alarm to deter people from breaking in
the dealership service department sent me to the Independent Alarm guy across the street, he installed another MOPAR alarm with a Sensitivity Switch, ( the sensitivity can be adjusted by turning a screw )
This is what it looks like installed, it is the Green thing next to the hood release, it also blinks
