Q: Brakes stiff and loud

asked by on

The brakes are extremely stiff and loud. I hear a constant beep, and the ABS and traction lights are on.

Hello. It sounds like you could have a couple of different problems. The brakes seem to be worn out and you have a possible problem with your brake booster. The ABS and traction light being on means that there is a bad sensor or component in the system. A check on your brake system, ABS, and traction system are all necessary and should be carried out by a certified technician.
