Hi,

DTC P0504 - brake switch a/b correlation

Checking output signals from both brake switch. when all of them are On or OFF simultaneously, if abnormal signal is detected for more than 0.5 sec., an error is recognized. And if this condition lasts for certain period. PCM sets P0504. MIL(Malfunction Indication Lamp) turns on when the malfunction lasts till cosecutive 2 driving cycle.

The majority of the time it is a faulty brake switch that sets both codes, but I included testing procedures so that you can verify a faulty switch and not a wiring issue

Hi,

There are 2 locknuts to remove to remove the brake switch, and disconnect the connector. Install new one in reverse. No special programming or anything:
