Nissan Altima 2007-2012 Service Manual: P1572 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.

DTC Logic

DTC DETECTION LOGIC

NOTE: • If DTC P1572 is displayed with DTC P0605, first perform the trouble diagnosis for DTC P0605. Refer to EC-1376, "DTC Logic".

• This self-diagnosis has the one trip detection logic. When malfunction A is detected, DTC is not stored in ECM memory. And in that case, 1st trip DTC and 1st trip freeze frame data are displayed.

1st trip DTC is erased when ignition switch is turned OFF. And even when malfunction A is detected in two consecutive trips, DTC is not stored in ECM memory.

DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE

1.PRECONDITIONING

If DTC Confirmation Procedure has been previously conducted, always perform the following before conducting the next test.

1. Turn ignition switch OFF and wait at least 10 seconds.

2. Turn ignition switch ON.

3. Turn ignition switch OFF and wait at least 10 seconds.

NOTE: The procedure for malfunction B is not described. It takes an extremely long time to complete the procedure for malfunction B. By performing the procedure for malfunction A, the condition that causes malfunction B can be detected.
