EBD can be seen as an enhancement or addition to the ABS (Anti-lock Braking System). ABS, oversimplified, varies the brake force on a given wheel to prevent wheel lock up while braking based on road contact. EBD goes further by varying the brake force on a given wheel using factors such as the load on each wheel, the condition of the road, the speed of the vehicle.

If this light is seen in conjunction with the ABS and Stability Control warning indicators, it indicates a fault in the EBD system, and that the ABS and Stability Control are also unavailable. Once a vehicle is equipped with EBD, the ABS and Stability Control systems rely on the proper function of the EBD system.

Your vehicle’s brakes and steering will continue to function normally. Risk exists only in extreme braking or steering conditions or in poor weather. Drive with caution.
