ABS light brake warning signs

ABS light and other brake warning signs on your dashboard you should pay attention to asap. Is your ABS light on ? Do not ignore the ABS light if it is on.The ABS system(anti lock brake system) helps control your car in adverse conditions.

Some other brake warning signs you should pay attention to are:

Noisy brakes  such as squealing,grinding,screeching or rubbing are an indication that your brakes need inspection. Any of these noises could mean that your brake pads and shoes are wearing and may need replacing. Brake pads that get worn out  cause damage to other parts ,which could mean more expensive repairs.

When braking you may feel the pedal or steering wheel vibrate or a pulsation if this true for you,it is time to have your brakes inspected . This pulsation/vibration feeling could mean that your rotors are warped.The rotors are part of the disc brakes that allow your car to stop . If the rotors are warped, this may impede your cars ability  from  stopping properly in an emergency situation.

If you have any of these warning signs give us a call or stop by so we can help you remedy the situation.
