This lamp will illuminate for a few seconds when the ignition switch is turnedBrake warning lamp

This lamp will illuminate for a few seconds when the ignition switch is turned to the “ON” position. A warning is also displayed on the multi-information display.

With the ignition switch “ON”, the brake warning lamp illuminates under the following conditions:

● When the parking brake lever has been engaged.

● When the brake fluid level in the reservoir falls to a low level.

● Before driving when the brake system is not operating correctly, be sure that the parking brake is fully released and the brake warning lamp is off.

CAUTION:

● If either of the situations described below occurs, there is a risk of reduced brake effectiveness. Stop the vehicle in a safe place and we recommend you to have it checked.

• The brake warning lamp does not turn off when the parking brake is released.

• The brake warning lamp remains illuminated during driving.

● If the brake warning lamp comes on at the same time as the ABS warning lamp, the brake force distribution function is not working so hard braking could make the vehicle unstable.

Avoid hard braking and high-speed driving. Stop the vehicle in a safe place and we recommend you to have it checked.

● The vehicle should be brought to a halt in the following manner when brake performance has deteriorated.

• Depress the brake pedal harder than usual.

Even if the brake pedal moves down to the very end of its possible stroke, keep it pressed down hard.

• Should the brakes fail, use engine braking to reduce your speed and pull the parking brake lever.

Depress the brake pedal to operate the stop lamp to alert the vehicles behind you.

Check engine warning lamp

This lamp is a part of an onboard diagnostic system which monitors the emissions, engine and automatic transmission control systems.

If a problem is detected in one of these systems, this lamp illuminates or flashes.

Although your vehicle will usually be drivable and not need towing, we recommend you to have the system checked as soon as possible.

This lamp will also illuminate when the ignition switch is turned “ON”, and goes off after the engine has started. If it does not go off after the engine has started, we recommend you to have the vehicle checked.

CAUTION:

● Prolonged driving with this lamp on may cause further damage to the emission control system. It could also affect fuel economy and drivability.

● If the lamp does not illuminate when the ignition switch is turned to thegONh position, we recommend you to have the system checked.

● If the lamp illuminates while the engine is running, avoid driving at high speeds and we recommend you to have the system checked.

Accelerator pedal and brake pedal response may be negatively influenced under these conditions.

NOTE:

● The engine electronic control module accommodating the onboard diagnostic system has various fault data (especially about the exhaust emission) stored.

This data will be erased if a battery cable is disconnected which will make a rapid diagnosis difficult. Do not disconnect a battery cable when the check engine warning lamp is ON.
