Common Causes | Faulty Brakes
Regular maintenance and monitoring of brake condition is essential to safe operation of a large truck. Grease or oil present on the brakes can cause brake failure. Overheated brakes can cause ‘hot spots’ that can result in a loss of braking power. Brake pads need to be replaced before they’re worn thin.
Signs of Brake Failure:
- Antilock brake system light comes on
- A feeling of ‘drag’ during acceleration
- A pulsing brake pedal while braking
- The vehicle pulls, or grabs to one side
