P1574 Code failures by brands


Description of DTC code P1574

The stop lamp switch circuit diagnostic test is performed when a sudden decrease in speed of a non-powered wheel is detected, and such a stop must be caused by the application of the brakes.

The speed of the non-drive wheel and the status of the stop lamp switch are provided to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) via serial data from the EBCM (Electronic Brake Control Module).

If a 4.02 km/h or greater decrease in non-drive wheel speed occurs within 0.4 seconds and a TCC transition occurs without a brake light switch change, diagnostic code P1574 OBDII will be set.
