Warning Light is on Inspection $79.99 - $89.99 Get a Quote

Hi there. Check the master cylinder reservoir and see if the fluid is low. Low fluid in the brake system will cause the slip light to come on with the VCD light. Also, check the condition of the car battery and see if the battery is weak. If the battery is weak, the lights will come on indicating the same problem. If you need further assistance with your warning lights, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
