RepairPal has identified the most common car problems based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
The hydraulic pump relay can fail, causing the pump to run continuously, which leads to hydraulic pump failure due to overheating. Incorrect pressures will cause a low brake pedal or a high pedal effort with the possibility of other strange symptoms.
An external fluid leak may develop at the pressure switch; fluid will be evident in the trunk and the reservoir level will drop.
The brake warning display and warning gong can activate, typically after the first start of the day. The warning light/gong might stop after idling for a short time. This fault is usually caused by low stored hydraulic pressure due to a failed high pressure accumulator.
