Audi Q7 (4M) 2016-2022 Owner's Manual: Electromechanical parking brake

Operating the parking brake

The electromechanical parking brake is used to secure the vehicle from rolling away unintentionally.

The switch is located under the selector lever in the center console. It turns on when the parking brake is set. You can release the parking brake manually or automatically when you start to drive.

Setting and releasing the parking brake

If the red indicator light flashes, the braking force has not built up enough or it has decreased.

You can also secure the vehicle by selecting the "P" gear or pressing the brake pedal. Make sure the indicator light is off before you start driving.

Automatically releasing the parking brake when starting to drive

Requirement: the driver's door must be closed and the driver's safety belt must be fastened.



Emergency braking function

Emergency braking should only be used in an emergency, if the standard brake pedal is malfunctioning or obstructed. When the emergency braking function is activated, the braking effect is similar to a heavy braking maneuver.


Heavy braking while driving through curves or in poor road or weather conditions can cause the vehicle to slide or the rear of the vehicle to swerve, which increases the risk of an accident.


The following messages may appear depending on the vehicle equipment:

Parking brake: malfunction! Safely stop vehicle. See owner's manual

Parking brake: malfunction! Please release parking brake

If one of the two messages appears, there is a malfunction in the parking brake. If the message appears while stationary, check if the parking brake is released and can be reset. If this is the case, switch the ignition off and back on.

If the message stays on, if the parking brake cannot be released, or if the message appears while driving, do not continue driving. Secure the vehicle against rolling before exiting the vehicle. See an authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility for assistance.

Parking brake: malfunction! Please contact Service

There is a malfunction in the parking brake. Drive to an authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility immediately to have the malfunction corrected. Do not park the vehicle on inclines and shift to "P".

Parking brake: warning! Vehicle position too steep

The braking force may not be enough to secure the vehicle from rolling away. Park the vehicle in a place with less of an incline.

Parking brake: applied

The parking brake is set. Press and hold the brake pedal to release the parking brake.
