What does the code p0483 means for a gmc envoy?

DTC P0483 is set when the difference between the commanded cooling fan speed and actual cooling fan speed is greater than 1,000 RPM.
Reset the comp with the scanner, if it comes up again, then you may need to replace your fan clutch.
Technical Service Bulletin (TSB #04-06-04-090A) says, "The diagnostic calibration in the PCM may allow the DTC P0483 to set improperly." The bulletin directs technicians as follows: "Reprogram the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) with a new service calibration titled, 'New calibration to reduce the potential for setting P0483.'" this will have to be done at the dealership, or by a qualified mechanic.
Good luck.

Trouble code po483 and po573, what are they?

P0483 Cooling Fan Rationality Check Malfunction
This code is set when the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor signal fails to rise above 15 mV (~1°F) after 2.5 minutes of operation. You probably need a new ECT sensor.

P0573 Cruise Control/Brake Switch A Circuit High
This can be caused when the brake switch is set too high. Possibly a faulty brake switch.
