Brake Lights on the Bolt

Mon Sep 11, 2017 9:27 pm

Hi Bolt Owners,

Does anybody know if the brake lights go on when the car is driven in LOW and the driver takes his (her) foot off the accelerator? Do the brake lights come on, as the car slows down considerably?

Thanks,
Jerry

Brake lights come on any time the car is decelerating at more than .1g or when you push on the brake pedal.
If it's not foggy
and your foglights are on
you are a doofus.

Thanks, that makes sense. is the .1g similar to a gasoline-powered car's braking?

No, .1g is barely slowing down; hardly braking at all.

No, in a gasoline-powered car, the brake lights are powered by an electrical switch connected to the brake pedal.
