Brake Light: When your brake indicator light comes on it is an indication of a problem and it could be a serious one. This could lead to brake failure
Hard Pedal: Hard pedals often indicate damaged brake linings, power brake trouble or other problems.
ABS Light on: This could be anything from low brake fluid to a bad component which could be a minor to a serious problem, but in most case it will only cause your Anti lock brake system to stop working and your regular brakes to work which will allow to be able to go into a skidding stop on emergency braking.
Grab: If your brakes grab with the slightest touch you may have something loose in your brake system. Then again, it could indicate something in the linings of your brakes such as grease or oil contamination.
Remember, regular brake inspections should be part of your vehicle's ongoing maintenance, helping to ensure its safety and reliability. In fact, we recommend that you have them inspected at least once a year or if you experience any of the following:
- Low or spongy brake pedal
- Hard brake pedal
- Brake warning light that stays on
- Continuously squealing or grinding brakes
