2.23.1. Signs of malfunction of the brake system

Fig. 2.46. The indicator signaling about malfunction of the brake system

At malfunction of the brake system the corresponding warning light indicator (fig. 2.46) will light up.
The pedal of a brake will have the increased working course, and normal braking will require a little bigger effort of pressing. If the warning light indicator lights up, it is necessary to stop and check immediately level in a tank of brake fluid.
If the level of brake fluid is lower than a minimum (MIN) in any part of a tank, it is necessary to stop a trip and to tow off the car on HUNDRED for survey and repair of possible malfunction.

Brake slips are supplied with mechanical indicators of wear. The sharp metal sound will indicate replacements of brake overlays the need.

Moisture on brake disks and brake slips can worsen braking.
Driving of the car at a heavy rain and slush or use of an automatic car wash can be led to a water congestion on brake disks and slips. It causes the slowed-down braking when pressing a pedal. In similar situations it is recommended to press a brake pedal slightly from time to time. Heat which is marked out at the same time will promote evaporation of moisture on brakes. It also should be carried out after a wash of the car or at departure on it in very damp weather.
It is also necessary to remember that the vacuum amplifier of brakes operates only at the working engine. Therefore at towage of your car or its movement on inertia to a full stop with the switched-off engine you should press a brake pedal approximately four times stronger, than at normal driving as the amplifier will not work.
At the faulty vacuum amplifier you will feel that the effort to pedals of a brake will sharply increase.
