Brake Warning Lights
A brake warning light will activate if your emergency brake is on or if your London Chrysler vehicle has a serious drop in the brake system's hydraulic pressure. If it is the latter, bring your car into Ken Ganley Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram ASAP as your brakes could be near total failure.


Low or "Spongy" Brake Pedal 
Does your brake pedal nearly touch your Chrysler floorboard before the brakes start working, or does your brake pedal feel "spongy?" This problem could require a simple adjustment or it may be something much more serious. Your Hilliard brake warning light may or may not come on when you push the brake pedal.

Touchy Brakes
Touchy brakes, those that grab and stop with very little pedal pressure, could indicate a simple problem in Grove City, like a contaminated brake lining, but could also be a very serious issue. Visit our London brake service center to make sure you are safe driving your Chrysler automobile.

Brakes Pulling
Does your London car pull to one side when you apply the brakes? This could be caused by anything from an underinflated tire to misadjusted brakes to Chrysler brakes that are in need of repair.

Squealing Brakes
Brakes should operate with very little noise. A little noise is normal, but excessive squealing, screeching, grinding, groaning, chatter, clatter or bang means your London Chrysler brakes need attention.

Vibration when Braking
Does your brake pedal, steering wheel or vehicle shake, vibrate, or pulsate when you apply the brakes? This could mean that you need to resurface the disc brake rotors, or it is signaling a serious problem involving a loose brake system component or faulty steering mechanism. Ken Ganley Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram can help you tell the difference. 

If you are experiencing any of the conditions above, you are probably also experiencing longer stopping distances and having a difficult time stopping if you have to slam on the brakes in your Chrysler vehicle. Any time you notice any of the symptoms on this list, it is a very good idea to have your brakes checked by a London brake service technician. Ken Ganley Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram recommends that you have them inspected at least once a year even if you do not experience any negative symptoms.
