Understanding Brake Warning Lights On Your Dashboard

A vehicle must be properly maintained if you want it to run reliably in the future. Since many drivers lack the mechanical knowledge required to determine when a vehicle is in need of repair, a series of warning lights are installed on most dashboards to help alert drivers to a potential problem. One warning light that you might not be familiar with is the brake warning light. This is not the red symbol that appears when your parking brake is activated, but the brake service and repair light.
