Fiesta Mk6 Zs Annoying Safety Feature ...

5 posts in this topic

My mk6 ZS has a feature where the hazard lights come on and flash a few times under hard braking. This is a great safety feature during daily driving in case I ever have to do an emergency stop ..

However I took my ZS round Curburough Sprint track a week or so ago, had great fun and really got to push the car to its handling limits without endangering people by doing it on public roads! And it kept doing its lovely safety feature of flashing the hazard lights every time I broke hard for the first corner (much to the amusement of the guys watching !)

Is there an easy was to temporarily disable this feature?
