At Earnhardt Lexus, we like to keep you, our customer, up to speed on what keeps your beautiful new lease or purchase in top condition. It is important to pay attention to how your car works and be ready if you notice something is wrong.
Two of those systems to observe are the ABS and the brake system. Regardless of the make or model, you can schedule certified auto repair with us. Our mechanics have the tools and equipment needed to make exacting repairs on any type of car or SUV.
The anti-lock braking system (ABS) is now a standard safety system in all cars. Its purpose is to keep the driver safe by preventing the wheels from locking when you use the brakes. You are able to keep control over the steering and your vehicle won’t skid as a result of the wheels locking up.
There is a warning light on the dashboard which will come on if there is any problem with the ABS. This is a light that needs to be taken seriously because it is an early warning sign that your ABS needs to be inspected.
There is also a brake system light that will come on if there is an issue with the braking system. It lets you know that it is time to take your vehicle to our specialists to check over your car’s brakes and make any adjustments needed.
Lexus vehicles get good safety ratings, but if they aren’t functioning properly, travel may become dangerous. It is important to your car safety that you don’t ignore check engine lights. By the time these lights are on, the problem has become significant and may be harming other components of your vehicle.
If you have any questions regarding the ABS or brake system lights in your Lexus, please contact Earnhardt Lexus or our service department to learn more. We have experts on hand to help with all of your auto needs!
