Automatic activation of emergency flasher in the event of emergency braking
If the vehicle is traveling at a speed of more than approx. 43 mph (70 km/h) and is braked fully to a standstill, e.g. if the vehicle suddenly approaches the end of a traffic jam, the emergency flasher is activated automatically and the brake light pulsates during braking.

The emergency flasher is deactivated automatically when the vehicle begins to move again.
Other vehicles could collide with your vehicle if you are parked in a dangerous position.
Whenever stalled or stopped for emergency repairs, move the car well off the road. Switch on the emergency flasher and mark the car with road flares or other warning devices.
Do not remain in the car. Someone approaching from the rear may not realize your vehicle is stopped and cause a collision.
