DTC Descriptor

DTC B3894 5A

- Stop Lamp Switch Circuit Plausibility Failure

Circuit/System Description

The brake switch is hard wired to the fuel pump/trailer brake control module. The body control module (BCM) sends a brake switch status serial

data message to the fuel pump/trailer brake control module. The fuel pump/trailer brake control module compares the states of the brake switch

signal to the serial data message after a master cylinder brake pressure sensor threshold is exceeded. If the brake switch signal and the serial data

message are not in agreement or if the serial data message is not valid, a DTC will set and the trailer brake control system will be disabled.

Conditions for Running the DTC

* Battery voltage is 9.5-17 V.

* The module initialization has taken place.

* The master cylinder brake pressure exceeds threshold

Conditions for Setting the DTC

* The brake switch serial data message is not valid.

* The actual brake switch input to the fuel pump/trailer brake control module, and the serial data information for the brake switch do not match.

Action Taken When the DTC Sets

* The trailer brake control will be disabled for the remainder of the ignition cycle.

* The driver information center (DIC) will display Service Trailer Brake System.

Conditions for Clearing the DTC

* The condition for the DTC is no longer present.

* The fuel pump/trailer brake control module clears the history DTC when a current DTC is not detected in 40 consecutive drive cycles.
