My first thought was an earth fault with the rear lights possibly caused by water getting in through a duff seal or a cracked lens cover.

Then I read about the hazards coming on with sever braking; how are these hazards activated in these braking circumstances? Is there an acceleration sensor that is activating the hazards? If so then this may be faulty.

I often see, and occasionally have done so myself, the use of Hazards when braking suddenly at speed on motorways but I was of the belief that the use of hazards whilst the vehicle was in motion was actually illegal in this country. If so then the car manufacturers should not be selling cars in this country with this feature. Of course the law could've changed.
