■ What to do when the indicator comes on while driving

Press 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.

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 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.
