TODAY WE ARE TALKING: BRAKE SYSTEM WARNING LIGHT
If you see the BRAKE SYSTEM WARNING light illuminate while driving, there are a few things that could be going on with your Subaru. First, ensure your parking brake is not engaged. If that's not the problem, your brake system may not be working properly or your brake fluid level is low.
If your parking brake is off, stop the vehicle as soon as you can safely do so and pull off the road. When you are dealing with the possibility of faulty or non-functioning brakes, do not attempt to drive. Call Subaru of Niagara and have your vehicle towed to us to fix your problem.
