WARNING

Failure to observe the warning lamps and text messages could lead to your vehicle breaking down in traffic, accidents and serious injuries.
  • Never ignore warning lamps and text messages.
  • Stop the vehicle as soon as it is possible and safe to do so.

WARNING

Driving with poor brakes can result in accidents and serious injuries.
  • If the brake warning lamp does not go out, or if it lights up when driving, the brake fluid level in the reservoir is too low or there is a fault in the brake system. Stop the vehicle immediately and make use of expert assistance   .
  • If the brake warning lamp lights up together with the ABS warning lamp , the control function of the ABS may have failed. This could cause the rear wheels to lock quickly when you brake. Locked rear wheels can lead to a loss of control of the vehicle! If possible, reduce your speed and drive carefully at low speed to the next qualified workshop in order to have the brake system tested. Avoid sudden braking and driving manoeuvres on the way.
  • The ABS is not functioning correctly if the ABS indicator lamp does not go out or comes on whilst the vehicle is in motion. The vehicle can be stopped using the normal brakes only (without ABS). The protection provided by ABS is no longer available. Go to a qualified workshop as soon as possible.
  • If lights up either individually or together with a text message in the display of the instrument cluster, go to a qualified workshop immediately and have the brake pads checked or have worn brake pads replaced.

NOTICE

Failure to observe the warning lamps and text messages could lead to your vehicle being damaged.
