On 2018 onward UK model when you take your foot off the accelerator the brake lights come on in b5 regeneration and also in sport mode on my 2019 2.4 (in sport mode you can always flick back to b4 but it’s a pain to remember),on my previous 2015 model this didn’t happen
Just wondering if there is a way via a hidden menu to stop this as to someone behind it looks like your a doddery driver who is braking all the time in my opinion the regenerative brake is no more aggressive than my old model and didn’t seem to cause drivers behind any problems as if fierce /emergency braking is required via the brake pedal the brake lights come on anyway

Who cares what other drivers think? Actually there have been requests for this behaviour on the forum.
I cannot imagine that there is a way to change this setting.

Maybe in a flat country that’s true but in my part of the world brake lights on all the way down a steep hill perhaps for several miles can be annoying,drivers of engined cars would use engine breaking so brake lights wouldn’t come on

If I saw brake lights on for that amount of time (down a long hill) I'd be expecting at least smoke and a bad smell - or like you say, I'd be thinking silly old fart or OCD braking habit (some people do seem to have a kind of OCD braking habit where they keep pressing the brake pedal - maybe to see if it still works? Perhaps they once had a brake failure experience - as I frequently do in my dreams). I've never thought that '5' is anything like as severe as actual braking either. I think Jeremy Clarkson was one of the first people to mention the lack of a brake light on re-gain.

Remarks:
1. My first replay is (RTFM), Read the Fucking Manual.
2. Do it again before you post a message to the forum.
3. Do not buy a(nother) PHEV, you do not understand the car.

Having had 2 outlander phevs I think I know the manual very well and the cars for that matter
Not used to such a rude and ignorant comment

Well I wouldn't be too hasty Megarax2019 (unless you really have already gone - in which case you just have been hasty). I wouldn't say that HaFr1954 was in any way typical of the sort of comments you'd normally find on this forum. It's the first time I've ever seen a comment like that. In fact I'd think that HaFr1954 is probably some kind of troll or nutcase actually - notice that this is HaFr1954's first post, so maybe not quite right in the head?

Thank for encouraging comment I did try to leave the forum but couldn’t find a way to do it
Perhaps I should have read the manual :D
