To release the parking brake, pull the lever up slightly, press the release button, then lower the lever while keeping the button pressed.

When the parking brake is set while the engine is running, the parking brake warning light illuminates. After starting the vehicle, be sure that the warning light has turned off before the vehicle is driven.

Never drive while the parking brake

Never drive while the parking brake is set because this will cause unnecessary wear on the brake linings.

Before starting to drive, always make sure that the parking brake has been fully released.
