E Parking Brake Adjustment / Service

If your van's nose "dives" excessively under braking, or feels like the rear brakes are not fully engaging, or if the brake pedal firms-up with a quick/light "double-tap" - try adjusting the electronic parking brake to help maintain (or restore) a firm brake pedal (and F/R brake proportioning).

When brakes are cold, cycle the electronic parking brake through service mode (via the Uconnect menus).
This retracts the rear brake pads (for servicing) - then reset - this tightens/adjusts any slack in the linkage from pad wear.

Apps>Settings>Brakes>Service Mode

Takes less than a minute. Enjoy.
