Hi Elliot.

I am not sure what you mean. I can not quite understand what you wrote. do
the brakes go on automatically at 5mph? I do hear a strange sound the first
time I back out of the driveway but it is hard to tell as I am always in
reverse. Perhaps it is something I can check. I just know I locked up on ice
several times and no effect what so ever. To answer Toms question I don't
have the on board computer monitoring option. I don't think I even have an
ABS light , should that be on all cars?
     A very strange thing as all my other cars I feel a definite kick back.
when I am on ice.'
