      With some surgical skills and perseverance I managed to extract the LED-unit for the 3rd brakelight via the trunk!!!

      Any ideas what Ohms value I should try?
      Ideally I would need the actual value from an intact unit.

      Another option for 3rd brakelight warning?

      I discovered earlier that the wiring IS reachable via the trunk, so I was thinking of another way to get rid of the warning sounds and light.

      mirror

      Crash avoidance

      I do have adaptive cruise control and front assist. I thought that front assist only started working above a certain speed.

      I'll report after some further testing

      3rd brake light

      Anyone,

      I have a very annoying "check brake light" warning popping up in my dash with a small beep everytime I brake.
