Brake Plus is a module that attaches, most commonly, to the wires of the 3rd brake light. Every time the driver depresses the brake pedal, Brake Plus will cause the lamp to rapidly pulse (not blink, flash, or strobe) 4 times and then remain solid. This helps alert trailing drivers that the vehicle is stopping, and, according to NHTSA, pulsing 3rd brake lights can reduce the risk of being rear-ended by up to 50%.
Brake Plus is available for purchase through your local auto dealership—it is not available for individual sale to consumers. Brake Plus must be properly installed by a certified professional technician in order to ensure proper functionality.
No, and it is against the law for a vehicle manufacturer to void a warranty based on the proper installation of Brake Plus. The Magnuson Moss Warranty Act (15 USC 2302(C)) states that, “Legally, a vehicle manufacturer cannot void the warranty on a vehicle due to an aftermarket part unless they can prove that the aftermarket part caused or contributed to the failure in the vehicle.” The only pieces of equipment affected by Brake Plus are light bulbs.
Brake Plus is roughly 8" long, and the wires can be rolled / coiled up inside vehicle compartments. It is installed to the wires nearest the lamp you are attempting to affect.
