Proper brake maintenance should be a major priority of your car's maintenance. It's very important that you are driving a safe and reliable vehicle. It is recommended that your brakes are inspected at least once a year. This reduces the chance that additional parts of the brake system will fail, resulting in a higher repair costwill also save you time and money in the long run by preventing more serious and expensive issues. If your ABS (antilock brake system) light is on, your brake warning light is on, or your vehicle screeches or vibrates upon braking, it is time to get your brakes checked. Stop in to AJ’s for all your braking needs.
ABS Light: Indicates a problem with the vehicle's anti-lock braking system. The onboard computer has deactivated the ABS system. Your brakes will still function, but are very dangerous in emergency situations.
Brake Warning Light: Check to see if the vehicle's emergency brake is on. This is a common mistake. If not, this is an alert to check your vehicle's brake fluid and brake lines.
Vehicle Vibrations: Warped brake rotors or drums may cause your brakes to pulsate. Other symptoms could be wheel bearings, or overtightened lug nuts.
The first certain sign that a vehicle needs brake repair is the audible screetching noise when applying the brakes. It will get louder as the brakes continue to wear down, and eventually the brake system will start to grind. Keeping up on regular brake maintenance will save you money in the long run.
