How do I apply the parking brake?

The parking brake is an important tool and can help take stress off your transmission, while ensuring that your car stays in one place on an incline.

  • To use the parking brake, follow these steps:
  1. Locate the parking brake lever between the driver and passenger seats.

  2. Pull it up completely.

  3. The Parking Brake light on your dash will turn on.

  • To release the parking brake, just:
  1. Pull up slightly.

  2. Push the release button on the end of the lever.

  3. Let it all the way down (the parking brake light should go out).
