Brake System Warning Light

The vehicle brake system consists of two hydraulic circuits. If one circuit is not working, the remaining circuit can still work to stop the vehicle. For normal braking performance, both circuits need to be working.

If the warning light comes on, there is a brake problem. Have the brake system inspected right away.

The Brake System Warning Light should come on briefly as the engine is started. If it does not come on, have the vehicle serviced by your dealer.

It might also take longer to stop.
