To apply the parking brake
1- Firmly depress and hold the brake pedal, then pull the lever up without pushing the button at the end of hand grip.
► When you intend to apply the parking brake, firmly press the brake pedal to bring the vehicle to a complete stop before pulling the parking brake lever. Pulling the parking brake lever with the vehicle moving could make the rear wheels lock up, thereby making the vehicle unstable.
It could also make the parking brake malfunction.
► Apply sufficient force to the parking brake lever to hold the vehicle stationary
after the foot brake is released.
► If the parking brake does not hold the vehicle stationary after the foot brake is released, have your vehicle checked immediately.
