Those of you with the P0571 code

wasnt sure where to post this. anyways, i had a recurring P0571 code, (brake switch/ cruise control). put it in the shop and found out that ONE, yes ONE, burnt out bulb in my third brake light was the entire culprit!!! come to find out these trucks are relatively sensitive to voltage/resistance changes and the drop in resistance because of that bulb tripped my code. just an FYI but i DO have led tail lights which also helped lower the resistance probably exacerbating the issue. anyways IF you have this code check for lowered resistance such as burnt out bulbs,etc.

07.5 ecsb 4x4 with 110k, 3" wrapped downpipe, race plug, efi live, cat/dpf delete, Fass Titanium 150, dual 6" stainless MBRP stacks, pcv reroute, edge evo for gauges only, 2.5" leveled in front, 1" block out back, K+N filter element.
