C12ff Description

The Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM) uses input from the brake master cylinder piston position sensor and the brake switch to determine when the brake pedal is being applied and with how much force. These inputs are used to determine the driver's braking intent which is used to the control amount of pressure applied to the wheels. The EBCM monitors the vacuum level in the power brake booster and will set a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) if the vacuum is too low.
