Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD) system warning

The brake system warning light also illuminates if a malfunction occurs in the EBD system. In that event, it illuminates together with the ABS warning light.

The EBD system may be malfunctioning if the brake system warning light and ABS warning light illuminate simultaneously during driving.

Even if the EBD system fails, the conventional braking system will still function.

However, the rear wheels will be more prone to locking when the brakes are applied harder than usual and the vehicleТs motion may therefore become somewhat harder to control.

If the brake system warning light and ABS warning light illuminate simultaneously, take the following steps.

1. Stop the vehicle in the nearest safe, flat place.

2. Shut down the engine, apply the parking brake and then restart it.

3. Release the parking brake. If both warning lights turn off, the EBD system may be malfunctioning. Drive carefully to the nearest SUBARU dealer and have the system inspected.

4. If both warning lights illuminate again and remain illuminated after the engine has been restarted, shut down the engine again, apply the parking brake, and check the brake fluid level.

5. If the brake fluid level is not below the УMINФ mark, the EBD system may be malfunctioning. Drive carefully to the nearest SUBARU dealer and have the system inspected.

6. If the brake fluid level is below the УMINФ mark, DO NOT drive the vehicle.

Instead, have the vehicle towed to the nearest SUBARU dealer for repair.
