Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.It is possible the code P0571 could cause the P0700 to set so the first thing to do is to deal with the P0571 which can be caused by either a bad brake light switch or the wiring to it. In order to determine which you are going to need to do some testing. I have enclosed the steps in the link below.

I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up shortThank you, Ron
Yes if you have the switch its likely bad with this code and yes you could still have brake lights if its bad , The test steps really need to be performed to know for sure. Try the new link below and see if it will open as it should for you. After you have the problem solved then yes you need to clear the codes, to do so disconnect the negative battery cable which will clear both codes.If you are not sure if the fluid has ever been changed then I would go ahead and do it that way you have a record of when it was done .
