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?

Hi mate

nice car!

I cant remember that far back but i thought it would be something done with the trip computer button? In the 'Settings' bit?
If notm press and hold the menu button and see what happens?

From the Fiesta manual:

are available on the Message

The vehicle can be set to unlock
only the driver’s door or to unlock
all doors when the button is
pressed once.

The direction indicators can be set
to flash three times when the
multifunction lever is tapped up or
down.
• Radio display
The Message Centre can display
some audio system information.
• Hazards on heavy braking
The hazard light can be set to flash
automatically if the brakes are
applied abruptly (e.g. emergency
braking).

Some of the convinience chimes
can be deactivated.
