Why do red lights sometimes flash on my windshield?

Your vehicle may be trying to help you avoid a potential collision.

Red lights sometimes flash

Here's how:

  • If your car is equipped with the Collision warning with brake support feature, it will trigger a flashing row of red lights on your windshield and sound an alarm, if it senses you're rapidly approaching traffic in front of you.
  • If you continue to draw closer to vehicles traveling more slowly in the same direction, the system will pre-charge your brakes to help you stop as quickly as possible, if necessary.*
