The brake lights come on automatically when the brakes are applied.

Adaptive brake lights

The adaptive brake lights activate in the event of sudden braking or if the ABS system is activated.

This function causes an additional taillight on each side of the vehicle to illuminate to help alert vehicles traveling behind.

The adaptive brake lights activate if:

• The ABS system activates for more than approximately a half second
• In the event of sudden braking while the vehicle is moving at speeds above approximately 6 mph (10 km/h)

When the vehicle has come to a stop, the brake lights and additional taillights remain on for as long as the brake pedal is depressed or until braking force on the vehicle is reduced.
