NOTE: Full details of system operation are found in the Owner's Manual.
The Electric Parking Brake system uses an electric motor mounted at each rear caliper to apply the parking brakes. To park the vehicle, bring it to a complete stop, firmly apply the parking brake, and then shift the select position to the “P” (PARK) to lock the wheels. The red brake warning light will illuminate indicating the parking brake is engaged.
The vehicle can be held stationary by pressing the AUTO HOLD switch prior to releasing the brake pedal. The indicator illuminates in the Combination Meter. When the accelerator pedal is depressed, the parking brakes are automatically released.
