Emergency braking system activates too easily when set to low. Car brakes when not needed. Also rear emergency braking activated with nothing behind car. Was told I should turn off the reverse braking system. Was told there was no problem with forward emergency braking system. Was told they plugged in my hood open switch. I didn't ask them to do that as that prevents the car from shutting down at traffic lights.
