SFI SYSTEM, Diagnostic DTC:P0724

DTC Code DTC Name
P0724 Brake Switch "B" Circuit High

DESCRIPTION

The stop light switch assembly is part of 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. This DTC indicates that the stop light switch assembly remains on. When the stop light switch assembly remains on during "STOP and GO" driving, the ECM interprets this as a fault in the stop light switch assembly. Then the ECM illuminates the MIL and stores the DTC.

DTC No. DTC Detection Condition Trouble Area
P0724 The stop light switch assembly remains on even when the vehicle repeats 5 cycles of STOP (less than 3 km/h [1.86 mph]) and GO (30 km/h [18.65 mph] or more) (2 trip detection logic).

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

This DTC indicates that the stop light switch assembly remains on. When the stop light switch assembly remains on during "STOP and GO" driving, the ECM interprets this as a fault in the stop light switch assembly. The ECM turns on MIL and stores the DTC. The vehicle must STOP (less than 3 km/h (1.86 mph)) and GO (30 km/h (18.65 mph) or more) 5 times during 2 driving cycles, in order to detect a malfunction.

  1. Connect the intelligent tester to the DLC3.

  2. Turn the engine switch on (IG) and turn the tester on.

  3. Clear the DTCs (even if no DTCs are stored, perform the clear DTC procedure).

  4. Turn the engine switch off and wait for at least 30 seconds.

  5. Turn the engine switch on (IG) and turn the tester on [A].

  6. Wait 5 seconds.

  7. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine / DTC [B].

  8. Read the pending DTCs.

    Tech Tips


    • If a pending DTC is output, the system is malfunctioning.

    • If a pending DTC is not output, perform the following procedure.

  9. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine / Utility / All Readiness.

  10. Input the DTC: P0724.

  11. Check the DTC judgment result.

    Tester Display Description
    NORMAL
    • DTC judgment completed

    • System normal

    ABNORMAL
    • DTC judgment completed

    • System abnormal

    INCOMPLETE
    • DTC judgment not completed

    • Perform driving pattern after confirming DTC enabling conditions

    N/A
    • Unable to perform DTC judgment

    • Number of DTCs which do not fulfill DTC preconditions has reached ECU memory limit

    Tech Tips


    • If the judgment result shows NORMAL, the system is normal.

    • If the judgment result shows ABNORMAL, the system has a malfunction.

    • If the judgment result shows INCOMPLETE or N/A, perform steps [C] through [E].

  12. Start the engine [C].

  13. Accelerate the vehicle to 30 km/h (18.65 mph) or more, depress the brake pedal and decelerate the vehicle to 3 km/h (1.86 mph) or less [D]. Repeat step [D] 5 times.

    CAUTION:

    When performing the confirmation driving pattern, obey all speed limits and traffic laws.

  14. Check the DTC judgment result [E].

INSPECTION PROCEDURE

Note

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

Tech Tips


  • Read freeze frame data using the intelligent tester. The ECM records vehicle and driving condition information as freeze frame data the moment a DTC is stored. 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.

  • Using the intelligent tester, the Data List item "Stop Light Switch" and "ST1" can be read Click here.

PROCEDURE


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


    1. Connect the intelligent tester to the DLC3.

    2. Turn the engine switch on (IG).

    3. Turn the tester on.

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

    5. Read the value displayed on the tester.
