Trouble Code: P0572

Brake Switch Signal No. 1 Circuit Low

Trouble Code Conditions:Ignition is on. When PCM recognizes that brake switch is mechanically stuck in the low/on position, a DTC will set. Three global good trips are necessary to turn off MIL.

Possible Causes:

* Brake switch signal circuit is shorted to ground
* BS No. 2 signal open
* Brake switch is damaged or has failed
* PCM has failed

i would check the brake switch first located under dash and when brake is pushed it hits switch turn ignition on and test the wires if all hot then switch is bad, other wise there is a short or bad pcm and these are not easy fixes requires knowledge of car wiring and diagnostic tools/computer

Testing the starter electrical circuits is how to find the problem . Viewing wiring diagrams to see what all is involved in the starting of your vehicle ? Most vehicles have a starter relay that is energized by the PCM/ECM - engine computer . B+ voltage comes from the ignition switch going through the starter relay control side to the PCM - which will ground that circuit turning on the relay sending B+ voltage to the S terminal on the starter solenoid .
Do you know what a automotive relay is an how to test ? How to test for B+ voltage at the starter ? How to use a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter ? Free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free-tsb Enter your vehicle info. year , make , model and engine size. Under system click on engine ,then under subsystem click on charging system . Click the search button then the third blue link , this is the starter electrical circuit . This diagram doesn't show the park neutral safety switch input to the PCM . Speaking of the park neutral switch , put transmission in neutral an see if it starts then , could be the switch is bad .

When you turn the key and it doesn't start, what happens? Do any of the dash warning lights come on? Does the engine turn over but not start?
1. If the dash lights DO come on every time, but the engine doesn't turn over every time, it's probably not a problem with the switch. Might be a bad starter relay.
2. If the dash lights DON'T come on every time, then it could be the switch (electrical contacts only working sometime). First, try spraying WD-40 or electrical contact cleaner into the lock area to see if that helps. If it doesn't, then you probably need a switch. Do a search for "ignition switch 2004 PT Cruiser" and you'll probably find what you need, including instructions. Be sure to disconnect battery before replacing the switch and follow precautions against activating airbag accidentally.

Sounds like you have a vacuum leak,check all vacuum hoses for leaks but if your car has a plastic intake it might be cracked or it might have a bad gasket on intake.but I need to know what the dealership said ,and have you had a tune up on it .

2004 Chrysler PT... | Answered on Feb 09, 2018


You shouldn't have any gas smells, maybe a little if the engine were cranking over without starting. But your car is not even cranking, right? Or will it crank and not start? In that case you might smell a little gas, so next step would be to check for spark.

The leak on front passenger side: if that is where the front of the engine is, check carefully your water pump for leaking (then it is bad) and also check all hose connections there for leaks.

Sudden no-start conditions are usually loss of either spark or gas to the cylinders. These are the first things to check when it won't start.

Perhaps you better learn to trust the mechanic .

just like any computer, unplugging it for 30 seconds or so may cause it to revert to initial settings.... if you take the battery terminal off you will reset everything and that is not necessary.... find the fuse for the radio and yank it.... see if it helps. IF NOT, probably a burned programming mode... hope you like that station....

you need to eliminate one thing at a time and this is how . inspect the oil cap where you put oil into your car and make sure there is no white discolouration build up on the underside of the cap (if there is this can indicate water has mixed with the oil head-gasket leaking )the water pump can be checked after the car has been running for a few mins by feeling any rubber water hoses going to and from the radiator both should be about the same temp . The fan will come into play after the motor has reached a higher temp and can be seen spinning if not they are at fault .a inspection of the water reserve tank should prove to be clean and not contain any oily build up if so it might be contaminated by oil ( head gasket leaking ) you may need to flush the coolant system mainly the radiator by using a chemical wash to help unblock any build up .

It is on the rear of the engine, passenger side. You need to access it from the underside and it is halfway up the block between the head and the oilpan. It is real close to where the engine and transmission meet.

You must have the engine control fault codes read with a scanner.

Most auto parts stores will come out to your car and connect a 'code reader' to the On Board Diagnostic (OBD) connector under your dashboard for free. The code often helps you identify what's not working correctly.

If there is a switch on the dome light, that may be your problem. You would need to remove the assembly and check for voltage coming into the switch using a voltmeter with the door open.
