Nissan Altima 2007-2012 Service Manual: ASCD Brake switch

Description

When the brake pedal is depressed, ASCD brake switch is turned OFF and stop lamp switch is turned ON.

ECM detects the state of the brake pedal by those two types of input (ON/OFF signal).

Refer to EC-1090, "System Diagram" for the ASCD function.
