Signs You May Need Brake Service
There are many warning signs that you need brake service. Here are some things to look out for:
· Indicator Lights: The most obvious sign that something's up with your brakes will be the warning lights on the dash. If the "BRAKE" or "ABS" (anti-lock braking system) light is illuminated, schedule Jeep service immediately.
· Squealing, squeaking, or other noises: There are plenty of disconcerting sounds you can hear when braking. A loud screeching noise might indicate that your brake pads are low and need to be replaced. Crunching, squealing, or grunting noises might represent other issues. If you're hearing troubling noises, have your Jeep’s brakes checked out ASAP.
· Pulling or "wobbling": If the car is performing oddly while applying the brakes, that could be trouble. Schedule service if the car is pulling to one side while braking, or if you feel a sort of wobbly feedback in the brake pedal when stepping on it--that could be warped rotors or something more serious.
