3rd brake light flashing 3x when braking

I have a 2013 accord Sport. Every time i press the brake pedal the 3rd brake light flashes 3 times than stays on solid.. I want it not to flash..

Is there a way to turn this feature off?

Exactly, the flashing is not OEM functionality, it has to be from an aftermarket module spliced between the factory wiring to the 3rd brake light.

Follow the wiring back from the brake light and you will find it.

I believe that's not legal in my state, yet people still do it. I don't believe it's been show to make your vehicle any more safe.

It's legal in most states as long as it doesn't flash more than 4 times in 4 seconds and only once cycle. I believe it's OEM on some Mercedes models now and maybe a few others. Some dealers offer the module as an option.

I have seen flashing third brake lights in action and I believe that is a benefit. Haven't done the mod myself but I have the module and its on the list.

It does look like there are better response rates flashing vs steady burn. This might be a good question to ask Markus as to why more manufacture don't use this. Maybe legislation needs to be passed?

I think the problem with it being on all cars is that in heavy traffic, everyone's cars are going to be blinking in stop and go and people will become numb to it.

If I got behind someone who's CHMSL kept flashing at me I would assume they were pumping the brakes at me and become annoyed very quickly.

It's a good way to encourage someone with road rage to pull out their pistol and open you up, though.
