Balance Control - Warning system

Balance control systems typically consist of a combination valve located on or near the master cylinder or in the steel lines between calipers and wheel cylinders. The balance control system ensures that brakes apply quickly, simultaneously, and at a balanced pressure for safest operation. An instrument panel lamp (red brake warning light) signals the driver of a hydraulic system failure, parking brake application, or when low brake fluid levels occur. On many newer vehicles, worn out friction material will also illuminate the red brake warning light.
