If the Brake System Indicator (Red) Comes On or 
Blinks

Reasons for the indicator to come on

The brake fluid is low.

There is a malfunction in the brake system.

What to do when the indicator comes on while driving

Depress the brake pedal lightly to check pedal pressure.

If normal, check the brake fluid level the next time you stop.

If abnormal, take immediate action. If necessary, downshift the 
transmission to slow the vehicle using engine braking.

Reasons for the indicator to blink

There is a problem with the electric parking brake system.

What to do when the indicator blinks

Avoid using the parking brake and have your vehicle checked by a dealer 
immediately.

1

If the Brake System Indicator (Red) Comes On or Blinks

Have your vehicle repaired immediately.
It is dangerous to drive with low brake fluid. If there 
is no resistance from the brake pedal, stop 
immediately in a safe place. If necessary downshift 
the gears.

If the brake system indicator (red) and 

ABS

 indicator 

come on simultaneously, the electronic brake 
distribution system is not working. This can result in 
vehicle instability under sudden braking.
Have your vehicle inspected by a dealer immediately.
