The brake master cylinder is designed for use in diagonally split hydraulic systems. It incorporates the functions of the standard dual master cylinder plus a fluid level sensor and integral proportioner valves. In a diagonally split system, the left rear brake and the right front brake are on the same hydraulic circuit in the master cylinder, and the left front brake and the right front brake on the other circuit.

The master cylinder is equipped with a fluid level sensor switch located in the side of the reservoir. The switch activates the BRAKE warning lamp if the fluid level is low. Once the fluid level is corrected, the BRAKE warning lamp will go out.

The brake system in these vehicles is a complex system dependent on absolutely clean brake fluid of the proper type. Use only SUPREME 11 or equivalent DOT 3 brake fluid from a clean, sealed container. Do not use fluid from an open container that may be contaminated with water. Using the wrong fluid or contaminated fluid could result in damage to expensive components, or loss of braking, with possible personal injury.


NOTE
Avoid spilling brake fluid on any of the vehicle's painted surfaces, wiring cables or electrical connectors. Brake fluid will damage paint and electrical connections. If any fluid is spilled on the vehicle, flush the area with water to lessen damage.


WARNING
Do not use power steering or transmission fluid in the brake system. Do not reuse brake fluid accumulated during brake system bleeding. Always store brake fluid in a closed container. Reseal brake fluid containers immediately after use. Do not use brake fluid left in an open or improperly sealed container, because it absorbs moisture, or can become contaminated.
