Service Vehicle Soon Light

The service vehicle soon light comes on if a condition exists that may require the vehicle to be taken in for service.

If the light comes on, take the vehicle to your dealer for service as soon as possible.

Brake System Warning Light

The vehicle brake system consists of two hydraulic circuits. If one circuit is not working, the remaining circuit can still work to stop the vehicle. For normal braking performance, both circuits need to be working

The brake indicator light should come on briefly as the engine is started. If it does not come on have the vehicle serviced by your dealer.

When the ignition is on, the brake system warning light may also come on when the parking brake is set.

The light stays on if the parking brake does not fully release. If it stays on after the parking brake is fully released, there is a brake problem. Have the brake system inspected immediately.

Warning

The brake system might not be working properly if the brake system warning light is on.

Driving with the brake system warning light on can lead to a crash. If the light is still on after the vehicle has been pulled off the road and carefully stopped, have the vehicle towed for service.

If the light comes on while driving, a chime sounds. Pull off the road and stop. The pedal might be harder to push or go closer to the floor.

It might also take longer to stop.

If the light is still on, have the vehicle towed for service. See Towing the Vehicle on page 10-70.

Service Vehicle Soon Light and Brake System Warning Light are essential indicators on the Chevrolet Captiva, signaling potential issues that require attention.

The Service Vehicle Soon Light typically illuminates to alert the driver that there may be a problem with the vehicle's systems, such as the engine, transmission, or emissions control. When this light comes on, it's crucial to have the vehicle checked by a qualified technician to diagnose and address any underlying issues promptly.

On the other hand, the Brake System Warning Light illuminates to indicate a problem with the vehicle's braking system. This could range from low brake fluid levels to more serious issues like brake pad wear or brake system malfunctions. When this light comes on, it's essential to check the brake fluid level immediately and inspect the brake system for any visible signs of damage or wear. It's recommended to have the brake system inspected and repaired by a certified mechanic to ensure optimal braking performance and safety.

Both warning lights serve as critical safety features, alerting drivers to potential problems that could compromise the vehicle's performance and safety. Ignoring these warning lights or neglecting to address the underlying issues promptly can lead to further damage, safety hazards, or costly repairs. Regular maintenance and timely inspections are key to keeping the 2018 Chevrolet Captiva running smoothly and safely on the road.
