Brake Warning Signs

Brake Warning Lights

A brake warning light will activate if your emergency brake is on or if your Toyota vehicle has a serious drop in the brake system’s hydraulic pressure. If it is the latter, bring your car into Daks Toyota ASAP as your brakes could be near total failure.

Low or “Spongy” Brake Pedal

Brake Service

Does your brake pedal nearly touch your Toyota floorboard before the brakes start working, or does your brake pedal feel “spongy?” This problem could require a simple adjustment or it may be something much more serious. Your Fletcher brake warning light may or may not come on when you push the brake pedal.

Touchy Brakes

Touchy brakes, those that grab and stop with very little pedal pressure, could indicate a simple problem, like a contaminated brake lining, but could also be a very serious issue. Visit our Daks Toyota service center to make sure you are safe driving your Toyota automobile.

Brakes Pulling

Does your Toyota car pull to one side when you apply the brakes? This could be caused by anything from an underinflated tire to misadjusted brakes to Toyota brakes that are in need of repair.

Squealing Brakes

Brakes should operate with very little noise. A little noise is normal, but excessive squealing, screeching, grinding, groaning, chatter, clatter or bang means your Toyota brakes need attention.

Vibration when Braking

Brake Service

Does your brake pedal, steering wheel or vehicle shake, vibrate, or pulsate when you apply the brakes? This could mean that you need to resurface the disc brake rotors, or it is signaling a serious problem involving a loose brake system component or faulty steering mechanism. Daks Toyota can help you tell the difference.

If you are experiencing any of the conditions above, you are probably also experiencing longer stopping distances and having a difficult time stopping if you have to slam on the brakes in your Toyota vehicle. Any time you notice any of the symptoms on this list, it is a very good idea to have your brakes checked by a Daks Toyota brake service technician. Daks Toyota recommends that you have them inspected at least once a year even if you do not experience any negative symptoms.

Daks Toyota in Kamwokya Uganda and our certified service and brake technicians have the right equipment, expertise, training and the proper brake parts designed specifically for your Toyota.

    As brake provide safety not only to the driver but also to the passengers and the car itself. So it is most important to check the condition of brake. You may also observe this function and if you see any irregular signs that the brake indicates don’t ignore these signs. These signs may be brake pulling, squealing of brakes also vibration. Some times it produces noise so take your vehicle to a well known car service center and make repair.ment *
