Can you tell me more about it, like where the magnet is? I am just trying to understand this weird pedal operation, in case it isn't anything to do with brake assist.
the system senses you want max braking by the speed you press on the pedal. it then applies and holds on maximum braking long before your foot reaches the floor. then if you start to lift off, the brakes stay fully applied until your foot is actually off the pedal. this feels odd, but is totally normal.
