If the vehicle breaks down on the road, move it to the shoulder and use the hazard warning flashers.

If the engine stops/fails

Vehicle operation and control are affected if the engine stops. Before moving the vehicle to a safe area be aware of the following:

1. The brake booster becomes inoperative and the pedal effort will increase. Press down the brake pedal harder than usual.

2. Since the power steering pump is no longer operative, the steering wheel feels heavy when turning it. Turn the wheel with more effort than usual.
