Just a question.....

If my automatic brakes kick in because the car thinks I'm about to hit something, or when driving in Adaptive Cruise control, do my brake lights come on? It's not something I can easily check!

Yes, otherwise you'd be picking bits of other motorists off your rear end. Laughing

I may be wrong but I believe hazard lights flash as well.

I think the SZ5 and S models have ESS (emergency stop signal) which under very extreme braking activates the Hazard lights on top of the rear brake lights

The manual, page 3-74 wrote:
While the automatic brake system is working, the interior buzzer will intermittently beep, the radar brake support system warning light (1) will blink rapidly, the indication (2) will appear, and the brake lights will be turned on.

Thanks all Smile

Looks like it's time for me to get the manual out again and have another read! study

& would anyone know if the brake lights come on when using the cruise control, when it just slightly slows you down ?

I'd say that any time the brake is applied, by driver or automaticly by car, the brake lights come on.

If "slightly slows you down" means slowing down without car braking then there are no brake lights.

I would agree with STDI , if you were to decelerate manually and slow down via engine braking no brake lights are applied so would expect the cruise control to be the same

I can confirm that the SZ5 has ESS under extreme braking.

I tend to brake slowly and leave an escape gap to the front, just to make sure the guy behind me is not asleep.
