|P0571 CHEVROLET code description

The Engine Control Module (ECM) monitors the brake pedal position sensor. When the brake pedal is applied, the ECM detects a predetermined voltage signal. The ECM sends a serial data message to the Body Control Module (BCM) indicating the status of the stop lamps.
This diagnostic test functions on the assumption that a sudden decrease in vehicle speed is caused by a brake pedal application. When the ECM detects that there is a 4.2 km/h (2.6 mph) or greater decrease in vehicle speed within 0.25 seconds without a transition of the stop lamp switch, the ECM sets Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0571.
