BRAKE SYSTEM PRECAUTION

CAUTION:


  • While the battery is connected, even if the engine switch is off, the brake control system activates when the brake pedal is depressed or the door courtesy switch turns on. Therefore during servicing of the brake system components, do not operate the brake pedal and open/close the doors while the battery is connected.

  • The GTS must be used when bleeding air. If not used, the air bleeding will be incomplete, which is hazardous and may lead to an accident.

Note


  • This vehicle is equipped with an SRS (Supplemental Restraint System). Failure to carry out service operations in the correct sequence could cause the SRS to unexpectedly deploy during servicing. This may cause a serious accident. Before servicing (including inspection, replacement, removal, and installation of parts), be sure to read the precautionary notices for the Supplemental Restraint System.
