Check Your Brakes

We rely on our brakes to keep us out of trouble. Yet most of us know relatively little about how to look after them and how to recognize that they are in need of attention.

Here are some warning signs.

What's that squeal?

If you hear a high-pitched noise while you are driving and without applying your brakes, it is usually a sign that your brake pads are worn down and need replacing.

What's that grinding sound?

A metal-on-metal grinding sound usually means your brake pads are completely worn. This will damage your drums or rotors and markedly reduce braking effectiveness.

Why is my vehicle pulling to one side?

If your brake linings are worn or uneven, it may cause your car to pull to either the right or the left when you brake.

Why do I have to pump my brakes?

If you have to pump your brakes to stop your car, there could be a number of reasons why.

It may be a leak in the brake system, air in the brake lines or a possible brake adjustment. 

Why is my warning light on?

If your brake system warning light is on, you may have a hydraulic system malfunction.

If your ABS light is on, the anti-lock system is not functioning correctly.

If you notice any of these warning signs or if you have any other concern about your brakes, contact your Chrysler, Jeep® Dodge and RAM Service Specialist immediately.

How can I look after my brakes?

You should check your brake fluid once every month.

Look for the brake master cylinder behind the steering wheel. You should be able to see the fluid level through the transparent tank.

Brake fluid depletes very gradually so if you notice a sharp drop get your brake system checked.
