He found this error.. C0042-11

They also changed a switch for same code Then concluded it was the
(Brake pedal position, shorted to ground)
Bad ABS Module comment, Needs to be replaced, and re-programmed to CPU by dealer only.

C0042-11: BRAKE PEDAL POSITION SENSOR - CIRCUIT SHORT TO GROUND
Set Condition:
When the Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) Module detects a short from the Brake Pedal Position (BPP) Sensor.
Possible Causes:
BPP sensor
BPP sensor improperly installed, damaged or mechanical failure
BPP sensor supply circuit open
BPP sensor signal circuit open
BPP sensor signal circuit shorted to ground or BPP sensor return circuit
ABS module

Whenever the BPP sensor is removed/reinstalled, or replaced, the ABS module needs to calibrate the reinstalled or new sensor. The dealership diagnostic system has a "ABS Initialize” routine. Auto collision/repair shops that have the equivalent FCA diagnostics probably have the "ABS Initialize” routine too.
