ELEKTRONISCHE BREMSKRAFTVERTEILUNG (EBD)

The Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) system controls the balance of braking forces supplied to the front and rear wheels. The result is that the EBD system helps to maintain maximum braking efficiency and stability.

If the vehicle has a light load, e.g., driver only and no luggage, the EBD system reduces the braking force applied to the rear wheels. If the vehicle is heavily laden, e.g., passengers and luggage, the EBD system increases the braking force to the rear wheels.

The red brake warning lamp indicates an EBD system fault and the instrument panel displays a warning message. In this event, gently and safely stop the vehicle. Seek qualified assistance. See BREMSE (ROT).
