The system has a parking brake status light and a parking brake warning light. See Brake System Warning Light . There are also Driver Information Center (DIC) messages. See Brake System Messages  for more information. In case of insufficient electrical power, the EPB cannot be applied or released. Before leaving the vehicle, check the parking brake status light to ensure the parking brake is applied.
