Warning Signs

  • PULL - Vehicle pulls to one side when brakes are applied. This can happen for a few reasons. The most common is from misadjusted brakes or brakes in need of replacement.
  • HARD PEDAL - Requires extreme pressure to make brakes function. Can indicate power brake trouble, restricted hydraulic lines, frozen calipers or wheel cylinders.
  • BRAKE LIGHTS - Red indicates a problem as simple as the parking brake on, or low fluid, to something as serious as a hydraulic system failure. Yellow indicates deactivation of your ABS system. While your brakes should work, it does require inspection at the first opportunity.
  • VIBRATION - Brake pedal, steering wheel or entire vehicle shakes, vibrates or pulsates when brake is applied. May indicate need to machine your disc brake rotors - or a serious problem of a loose component or faulty steering mechanism.
  • SQUEAL - Brakes should operate with a minimal amount of noise. Some noise is normal but excessive squeal, screech, grinding, groaning, chatter, clatter or bang means your brakes need servicing.
  • LOW PEDAL - Pedal nearly touches floorboard before brakes function. May activate your brake warning light. Problem may require a simple adjustment - or indicate something much more serious.
