Brake System Warning Light | What Does It Mean?

Have you noticed this light come on your vehicle’s dash?

This is the Brake System Warning Light and when this light comes on, it means the parking brake could be engaged or something could be seriously wrong with your vehicle’s braking system that can’t be ignored. Some cars have a common warning light for these two issues, others may have separate lights.

The first thing you should do if you see this light is to make sure that your vehicle’s parking brake is completely disengaged.  If you have double checked that your parking brake is not engaged and you are still seeing the light on your dash, then this means there is a potential issue with your vehicle’s braking system. It’s important that have the issue looked at right away for your safety. Do not drive your vehicle if this light is on until consulting an automotive repair professional.
