СИСТЕМА SFI, Diagnostic DTC:P0504

DTC Code DTC Name
P0504 Brake Switch "A" / "B" Correlation

DESCRIPTION

The stop light switch is a duplex system that transmits two signals: STP and ST1-. These two signals are used by the ECM to monitor whether or not the brake system is working properly. If signals which indicate the brake pedal is being depressed and released are detected simultaneously, the ECM interprets this as a malfunction in the stop light switch and stores the DTC.

Tech Tips

The normal signal conditions are as shown in the table below.

Signal (ECM Terminal) Brake Pedal Released In Transition Brake Pedal Depressed
STP OFF ON ON
ST1- ON ON OFF

  • [OFF] denotes ground potential.

  • [ON] denotes battery potential (+B).

  • On the intelligent tester, the Data List items Stop Light Switch and ST1 are both ON when the brake pedal is depressed because the characteristics of ST1 indication are the opposite of the characteristics of Stop Light Switch indication.

DTC No. DTC Detection Condition Trouble Area
P0504

Conditions (a), (b) and (c) continue for 0.5 seconds or more

(1 trip detection logic):

(a) Ignition switch is ON.

(b) Brake pedal is released.

(c) STP signal is OFF when the ST1- signal is OFF.


  • Short in stop light switch signal circuit

  • STOP fuse

  • Stop light switch assembly

  • ECM

INSPECTION PROCEDURE

Note

Inspect the fuses of circuits related to this system before performing the following inspection procedure.

Tech Tips


  • Read freeze frame data using the intelligent tester. Freeze frame data records the engine condition when malfunctions are detected. When troubleshooting, freeze frame data can help determine if the vehicle was moving or stationary, if the engine was warmed up or not, if the air-fuel ratio was lean or rich, and other data from the time the malfunction occurred.

  • Stop light switch conditions can be checked using the intelligent tester.


    1. Connect the intelligent tester to the DLC3.

    2. Turn the ignition switch to ON.

    3. Turn the intelligent tester on.

    4. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / Data List / All Data / Stop Light Switch and ST1.

    5. Check the Data List indication when the brake pedal is depressed and released.

Brake Pedal Operation Stop Light Switch ST1
Depressed ON ON
Released OFF OFF

PROCEDURE


  1. READ VALUE USING INTELLIGENT TESTER (STOP LIGHT SWITCH)


    1. Connect the intelligent tester to the DLC3.

    2. Turn the ignition switch to ON.

    3. Turn the intelligent tester on.

    4. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / All Data / Stop Light Switch.

    5. Read the value displayed on the intelligent tester.

      Standard
      Condition Specified Condition
      Brake pedal depressed STP signal ON
      Brake pedal released STP signal OFF

    NG
    OK
  2. INSPECT STOP LIGHT SWITCH ASSEMBLY (B+ VOLTAGE)

    (to Stop Light Switch Assembly)


    1. Disconnect the stop light switch connector.

    2. Measure the voltage according to the value(s) in the table below.

      Standard Voltage
      Tester Connection Condition Specified Condition
      B2-2 - Body ground Always 11 to 14 V
      B2-3 - Body ground Ignition switch ON 11 to 14 V

    NG
    OK

    1. Disconnect the ECM connector.

    2. Turn the ignition switch to ON.

    3. Measure the voltage according to the value(s) in the table below.

      Standard Voltage
      Tester Connection Condition Specified Condition
      B9-16 (ST1-) - Body ground Brake pedal released 11 to 14 V
      Brake pedal depressed 0 to 3 V
      B7-4 (STP) - Body ground Brake pedal released 0 to 3 V
      Brake pedal depressed 11 to 14 V

    NG
    OK
