Most cars have 2 brake warning lights, one red and one amber. The amber light warns if the anti-lock brake system has a problem. When this light is on the anti-lock (ABS) system is not working. Keep in mind that if your brake fluid is low enough to turn the warning light on your brake pads are probably worn to the point of needing service or replacement. We want to help you maintain your vehicle safety.
During the month of October Autoworks donates 10% of every brake service to the Cleveland Clinic Breast Cancer Vaccine Fund which is almost ready for human trial. The customer receives FREE brake pads and only pays for ancillary parts and labor during the fundraiser, Brakes for Breasts. Visit Brakes for breasts.com to learn more about this win win opportunity that was started by two women at an independent shop in Ohio. Only independent garages across the country participate in this wonderful fundraiser. Autoworks contributes 10% of every brake service to the Cleveland Clinic Breast Cancer Vaccine Fund which is almost ready for human trial.
Here are some other ways to tell if it’s time to have your vehicle’s brakes serviced. I apply the brakes and the car shakes.
- The car makes a squeaking noise that stops when I apply the brakes.
- I have to push the brake pedal harder to stop than before.
- There is a screeching noise made when the brakes are applied.
- The brake warning light is on.
