P0719 CHEVROLET - Brake Switch Circuit Low Input
Faulty Brake Switch
Brake Switch harness is open or shorted
Brake Switch circuit poor electrical connection
When is the code detected?
When the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) detects an open brake switch circuit (0 volts, low input) during accelerations, then the P0719 is set.
Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
P0719 Chevrolet Description
The brake switch indicates brake pedal status to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). The brake switch is a normally-closed switch that supplies battery voltage on circuit 420 to the PCM. Applying the brake pedal opens the switch, interrupting voltage to the PCM. When the brake pedal is released, the PCM receives a constant voltage signal. If the PCM receives a zero voltage signal at the brake switch input, and the torque converter clutch (TCC) is engaged, the PCM de-energizes the TCC solenoid valve. The PCM disregards the brake switch input for TCC scheduling if there is a brake switch circuit fault.
