ELECTRIC PARKING BRAKE SYSTEM


  1. OUTLINE


    1. An electric parking brake system is used.

    2. The electric parking brake system has a manual function in which the driver locks and releases the parking brake by operating a switch, and an automatic lock/release function which is linked to the shift lever position in CVT vehicles or the ignition switch being turned off in manual transmission vehicles.

    3. This system allows the parking brake to be operated by the actuator, and not only can operating force be reduced, but an improvement in convenience is achieved by the use of the auto function.

    4. A function which locks the parking brake in conjunction with the brake hold function is provided. For details, see the BRAKE CONTROL / DYNAMIC CONTROL SYSTEMS.
