Chevrolet Equinox Owners Manual: EPB Apply

To apply the EPB:

  1.  Be sure the vehicle is at a complete stop.
  2.  Pull the switch momentarily.

Theor PARK light will flash and then stay on once the EPB is fully applied. If theor PARK light flashes continuously, then the EPB is only partially applied or there is a problem with the EPB. A DIC message will display. Release the EPB and try to apply it again. If the light does not come on, or keeps flashing, have the vehicle serviced.

Do not drive the vehicle if theor PARK light is flashing. See your dealer. See Electric Parking Brake Light.

If the light is on, pull the EPB switch. Continue to hold the switch until theor PARK light remains on. If the light remains on, see your dealer.

If the EPB is applied while the vehicle is moving, the vehicle will decelerate as long as the switch is pulled. If the switch is held until the vehicle comes to a stop, the EPB will remain applied.

The EPB applies automatically when shifting to P (Park) on a steep incline. The EPB releases as soon as the vehicle is shifted out of P (Park) and the vehicle accelerates.
