The test procedure is to turn off the engine and pump the brake pedal until
it becomes hard.  If you get a hard brake pedal immediately or after a few
pumps, your bomb essentially is shot.  If you get 15 or so pumps before the
hard pedal, your bomb is getting old but still working fairly well.  A new
bomb is supposed to allow around 30 pumps.  The ( ) in the top dash display
is the worn brake pads warning.
