Parking brake

WARNING: If the parking brake is fully released, but the brake warning lamp remains illuminated, then driving the vehicle could result in reduced braking ability, increased stopping distances and potential loss of brakes. See your authorized dealer as soon as possible.

To set the parking brake, press the parking brake pedal down to its fullest extent.

To release the parking brake, press the parking brake pedal down again.
