Hazard lights under hard braking?

Post by piglet » Sat Aug 05, 2017 11:41 am

I've had the car for years and never noticed this but Pigletson has been driving it a fair bit and apart from moaning about clutch slip he made comment on hazards coming on when he has the car stood on it's nose.
None of the above surprises me but is this a feature or a fault?
If it's a feature can it be switched off or not?

It is a feature and it can be disabled using Planet, though to be honest I think it's best left enabled.

Thanks jon,
Yeah I found an old thread about it.
What are the conditions for it to activate, speed, ABS, etc. or is it just on braking force?
Just weird that I've never noticed it, I have braked hard, honest.

Tell him the less he lets the clutch slip the longer he will be able to drive the car.
