Anyone knows what this code means? My car was stuck in snow today.. I turned the ESP off and while driving out of the parking lot I smelled something burning and the check engine light came on :doh:

Here is the code description...

P0573 - Generic - Brake Switch A Circuit High

not sure about it though.

TSB 18-035-06 PCM recalibration

FLASH: Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) On For P0573​
This bulletin involves inspecting the brake pedal switch and selectively erasing and reprogramming the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) with new software.


2005 - 2006 (LX) 300/Charger/Magnum
2006 (LE) 300C/300C Touring​


Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0573 is set if the vehicle gets physically stuck in a slippery condition and while trying to get the vehicle unstuck is rocked back and forth (transmission shifted drive to reverse to drive...) without pressing the brake pedal.​


Using a Scan Tool (StarSCAN®) with the appropriate Diagnostic Procedures available in TechCONNECT, verify all engine systems are functioning as designed. If DTC's are present record them on the repair order and repair as necessary before proceeding further
with this bulletin. If the vehicle operator describes the Symptom/Condition above perform the Repair Procedure.​

Just pull fuse 11 for 5 minutes and restart your car. I had this a couple of snow storms ago also. You get it if your attempting to get unstuck and you don't use the brakes in between reverse and drive.
