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 vehicle has antilock brakes, this light should come on when the vehicle is placed in START. If it does not, have the vehicle serviced by your dealer.

If the light comes on while driving, pull off the road and stop carefully.

The pedal may be harder to push or it can go closer to the floor. It may take longer to stop. Try turning off and restarting the vehicle one or two times. If the light is still on, have the vehicle towed for service. See Antilock Brake System (ABS) Warning Light and Towing the Vehicle.

WARNING!
