          I belive the brakes flash when you hit them hard, apparently to warn the car behind that you are stopping quickly.

          I had a run in with a zafira gsi and when we stopped at the lights she said my brakes were not working properly


          Doh! just relized the "flashing brake light" post, weekend must be catching up with me.

                Hi t20lau. The wire is part of the loom for diesel engine cars. Same loom for both petrol and diesel so in a petrol it ends up like this.

                The flashing brake light is the Emergency Brake Assist (EBA). Here's what the Owner's Manual has to say (NB Adaptive brake light):

                "Brake assist
                Rapid powerful application of the brake pedal automatically applies maximum braking force amplification to achieve the shortest possible braking distance under full braking (brake assistant). Maintain steady pressure on the brake pedal for as long as full-on braking is to continue. When the brake pedal is released, the maximum brake force amplification is taken away.

                Adaptive brake light
                During full-on braking, all three brake lights flash for the duration of ABS control.
