Emergency Brake Assistance (EBA)

Emergency Brake Assistance (EBA)  - Brake system - Starting and driving - Volvo XC90 Owners Manual - Volvo XC90

The EBA function is designed to provide full brake effect immediately in the event of sudden, hard braking. The system is activated by the speed with which you depress the brake pedal.

NOTE
• When the EBA system is activated, the brake pedal will go down and pressure in the brake system immediately increases to the maximum level. You must maintain full pressure on the brake pedal in order to utilize the system completely.
There will be no braking effect if the pedal is released. EBA is automatically deactivated when the brake pedal is released.
• When the vehicle has been parked for some time, the brake pedal may sink more than usual when the engine is started. This is normal and the pedal will return to its usual position when it is released.
