I've experienced the same event. I'll be driving along and the word BRAKE appears in the driver's information panel for seemingly no reason. Can't figure out whats activating it. I'm not that close to another vehicle.Back on the original topic...
I’ve had the BRAKE light go off fairly frequently when there wasn’t an impending collision. Haven’t had the brakes tap, though, unless I really was behind someone. One such occurrence the guy cut me off...that was a bit unsettling.
I’m glad to have the system, though, as long as it doesn’t apply the brakes incorrectly. Given some of the random times these safety features sometimes activate, I’m not entirely trusting of them.
