How to Reset Service Brake Assist

Service brake assist is a safety feature that helps keep the car from rolling away in an emergency. To reset service brake assist, follow these steps:

1. Park the car in a safe place.
2. Turn off the ignition and remove the key from the ignition.
3. Remove the front panel cover by pressing down on one of the clips near the top and pulling it towards you. The cover should come off easily once it’s free.
4. Remove two screws securing the electronic module to the bracket above it. Once they are removed, gently pull out the module to reveal three wires linked to it (two red and one green).
5. Touch each wire to each of its corresponding wire terminal on the electronic module, being sure to align them properly before doing so (the colors of each wire correspond with those shown in Figure A below). Make sure all three wires are connected before replacing the module and screwing it back into place (Figure B).
6. Replace the front panel cover and turn on the ignition. The service brake assist indicator should now be reset and work as normal.


Recently, I had to take my car into the shop because the service brake assist wasn’t working. After taking it in and having it diagnosed, the technician was able to reset my service brake assist for me. If you’re ever unable to use your service brake assist, follow these steps to reset it: 1) Turn off your car. 2) remove both front wheels by pressing down on the caps at each end of the wheel hub with a wrench or a screwdriver. 3) Raise and lower the car with the wheels removed until you hear a click from inside the wheel well that signifies that the safety system has been disabled. 4) replace both Front Wheels (put them back on in reverse order). 5) Repeat steps 2-4 if necessary so that all four wheels are disabled.
