Cause

The parking brake module (PBM) service mode is malfunctioning.

Repairs

  • Place the ignition in position 2 (ignition ON). If the car is equipped with push-button start, hold the start button until the instrument cluster lights come on but do not press any pedals.
  • With AssistPlus connected, go to: CHASSIS >> PARKING BRAKE MODULE (PBM) >> ACTIVATIONS AND SERVICE MODE >> SERVICE MODE-ACTIVATE
  • Listen to the rear motors winding back pistons.
  • Once they have stopped, you can replace the rear pads. Manually press the rear pistons into the calipers.
  • Do not pump the brake pedal.
  • After you have replaced the rear brake pads go to: SERVICE MODE EXIT. The motors will now self-adjust the rear brake pads.
