SOURCE: my speedometer's not working neither is my cruise control

It's your ETCBM ( Electronic Traction Control Brake Module ). Had the same problem . This will cause your speedometer , ABS brakes and check engine light to come on.You'll even notice your stering is a little stif. I had my mechanic remove it and sent it out to Module Masters for rebuild ( 5 year warranty ) Works like a charm now. Those guys are really great .Cost me with freight $160 plus mechanic to R & R it.

I found this info online . Most mechanics will say it is a Speed sensor, but after many hours and going that route you'll see what I mean.

PS: You can still drive the car ( carefully ) while you wait for the rebuilt unit to be returned.

How to fix cruise control on a 2006 ford freestar, does not work at all, wont turn on

Note the diagram, at least check the fuse. Check trouble codes, related to cruise control. to check codes yourself, at least, you need an obd2 code reader that will read po codes as well as manufacturer specific codes. It is worth the investment, in my opinion. Make sure the brake lites work.

4x4 4.0l V6. What are the probable causes of DTCs P0112, P0117, P0122, P0513, P0556, and P0565?

code p 0112 refers to intake air temp (IAT) sensor --circuit malfunction===cause --wiring short to graound--wiring short to positive --IAT sensor ---ECM
code p 0117 refers to engine coolant temp (ECT) sensor--circuit malfunction=== causes --coolant thermostat---wiring short to ground--wiring short to positive ---ECT sensor
code p 0122 refers to throttle position (TP) sensor A/ accelerator pedal position (APP) sensor A low input === causes wiring short to ground--TP/APP sensor --ECM
There are 3 responses to p 0122 and all refer to TP switch /sensor plus wiring open /short to ground/ short to positive
code p 0513 refers to incorrect immobilizer key=== causes immobilizer system
code p 0556 refers to brake booster pressure sensor---circuit range / performance=== causes --wiring---poor connection---brake booster pressure sensor---ECM
code p 0565 refers to cruise control master switch. off signal --malfunction === causes wiring---cruise control master switch--ECM
by reading all the codes you will see that common causes are wiring problems and ECM so may be a quick check would be to replace the ECM with a known working unit first and work back from there

Is showing several codes P0724,P0573,P0575,P0872,P0877,P0989

P0724 is brake switch circuit high input.
P0573 is cruise control / brake switch A circuit high
P0575 cruise control input circuit
P0872 I think is solenoid
P0877 transmission fluid pressure switch
P0989 not sure
Hope this helps

I have got a problem with my 2007 model subaru impreza, i do not know what happened but it has deleted my dashboard dump!! gives error code p1572, and car doesnt start how can i fix this problem

well this code doesnt show under subaru and on generic codes it shows as

P0572....Cruise Control/Brake Switch A Circuit Low, which i dont think is your problem so i would hazard and say that something serious has gone wrong like the ECU unit and its thrown the immobilisor on so i think you will have to have the vehicle taken to a dealer and be prepared for a nice big bill

Trouble code po572 on dodge dakota slt, 3.7 ltr

P0572 - Cruise Control/Brake Switch A Circuit Low

Switch number 1 on the cruise brakes has low voltage on the circuit. Or how about low voltage on your brake line switches or something? Check to see if inadvertantly the connection to the actual pressure switch (one for front & the one for the rear) may have pulled loose at the switch. These are located in the Hydrolic fluid line... Trace from calipers back. (Two wire connection).

Code p0572

That's probably a fairly easy fix it job you just need to check the fuse and relay for the cruise control , plus check the black wire going to the cruise control servo unit under the hood , you'll see two thin metal cables running to it from the throttle body.Plus this code suggests that the switch on the brake pedal might be acting up or that the switch is loose of out of alignment or it has a bad ground etc, also it mentions low current that's probably a bad connection of faulty wire and again ground related.

Hope that helps and best of luck.By the way most of such problems if related to wiring are ground faults.If it is the brake switch etc you can check with the big auto wreckers for the part bec they know what parts are interchangeable on what models and yrs etc.I suggest getting the used part from a U pick wreckers if at all possible bec if you remove the part you can save up to 50% on the parts over all average price or cost.

Chrysler code P0572 need help

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
