Hazards lights coming on and staying on.

Is this normal? Anyone else experienced this?

Every time I brake hard my hazards come on and only turn off when I manually push the button. I’ve experienced it before in other cars in response to ABS or TC kicking in, but they always turn off on their own after about 10 to 15 flashes.

Yeah, if you brake hard and then come to a standstill the hazards are supposed to stay on.

That’s reassuring, thank you.

I saw on another thread some pics posted of coding options and one said something like “hazards lights on after collision” it made me worry that the car had thought I’d had a crash.

If you drive off they do cancel themselves, I've had it numerous times when exiting a slip road and the pesky lights change.

It’s stopping for lights when it’s happened to me. Not sure I can wait until the lights go green with everyone around me wondering why my hazards are on
