COVID-19 Update

We are here for you

Dear Clients

The health and safety of our employees and community is our highest priority. We are closely monitoring the guidance of the World Health Organization and Center for Disease Control and Prevention regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Griesbach Auto Service is actively implementing various procedures to ensure we meet clients needs while doing our part to keep you, our employees, and our communities safe. We continue to offer online scheduling, free pick up and delivery, loaner vehicles, night drop box, digital inspections, and text to pay invoicing. With these services, you can have your vehicle serviced at this time without any face to face contact with our employees or other clients. This will drastically reduce any chances of spreading a virus.

In addition to our standard health and safety practices which we already maintain, we have added a few other precautions, including:

• Increasing the frequency of cleaning and sanitization in all of our offices, loaner vehicles, and service centers.
• Ensuring the safety of our employees through prevention education, early detection of symptoms, encouraging them to stay home when ill, and reinforcing best practices.

Our Service Departments remain open for business, and we are ready to serve you at either location and online at griesbachautoservice.com. If any changes to this occur, we will be sure to update everyone as new information becomes available.

Thank you for your trust in us,

Jon Griesbach

Pay Attention to this Light

Brake light on

Of all the warning lights on your vehicle's instrument panel, there's one that demands your attention.  And that's the brake warning light.

Common sense will tell you that if you can't stop, you are endangering yourself and others.  Brake warning lights are there to warn you that something is wrong with this vital safety system.

There are several reasons a brake light will come on, but if yours does, call Griesbach Auto Service Inc in Weston or Wausau and have it checked out right away.

Here are some possibilities of what's going on when you see that brake warning light.

Low brake fluid—A sensor has detected that the brake fluid level is low.  The technician can determine if you need more fluid.  The technician can also determine if there's a leak in your brake system.  Low brake fluid could also be a sign of worn brakes pads.  An inspection can reveal brake problems.  Just topping off the brake fluid can leave critical problems unaddressed.

The light will also come on if there is a sudden loss of hydraulic pressure in the brake lines.  This could be from a brake line rupture.  This could be caused by road debris cutting a brake line or simply from corrosion eating through a line.  Your brake light will come on at the same time the line ruptures, and you will have little warning.  Always keep in the back of your mind that you have your emergency brake as one more way to stop. 

The brake light may come on when your parking/emergency brake is on.  It could be as simple as you left your parking brake on.

Another brake related warning light is the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) light.  This system has many components; a bad wheel sensor or damaged wiring may be the culprit.  Your technician has a special diagnostic tool to track this one down. 

Brakes aren't something to neglect.  When you see that brake warning light come on, take your vehicle to your Griesbach Auto Service Advisor as soon as possible.
