FEATURES OF YOUR HYUNDAI
Parking Brake/Low Brake Fluid Level Warning Light
If you suspect brake trouble, have your brakes checked by a Hyundai dealer as soon as possible. Driving your car with a problem in either the brake electrical system or brake hydraulic system is dangerous, and could result in a serious injury or death.
Warning Light Operation
The parking brake/brake fluid level warning light should illuminate when the parking brake is applied and the ignition switch is turned to "ON" or "START". After the engine is started, the light should go out when the parking brake is released. If the parking brake is not applied, the warning light should illuminate when the ignition switch is turned to "ON" or "START", then go out when the engine starts. If the light illuminate at any other time, you should slow the vehicle and bring it to a complete stop in a safe location off the roadway.
The brake fluid level warning light indicates that the brake fluid level in the brake master cylinder is low and hydraulic brake fluid conforming to DOT 3 or DOT 4 specifications should be added. After adding fluid, if no other trouble is found, the car should be immediately and carefully driven to a Hyundai dealer for inspection. If further trouble is experienced, the vehicle should not be driven at all but taken to a dealer by a professional towing service. Your Hyundai is equipped with dual-diagonal braking systems. This means you still have braking on two wheels even if one of the dual systems should malfunction. With only one of the dual systems working, more than normal pedal travel and greater pedal pressure are required to stop the car. Also, the car will not stop in as short a distance with only half of the brake system working. If the brakes malfunction while you are driving, shift to a lower gear for additional engine braking and stop the car as soon as it is safe to do so.
Parking brake warning chime (if installed)
The parking brake warning chime sounds to remind you that the parking brake is applied when your are driving above 6mph(10km/h). Always release the parking brake before you drive.
Charging System Warning Light
The charging system warning light should illuminate when the ignition is turned on, then go out when the engine is running. If the light stays on while the engine is running, there is a malfunction in the electrical charging system. If the light illuminates while you are driving, have the system checked by your Hyundai dealer as soon as possible.
