My 04 started acting strange again Mad I do not have to push the brake to get out of park & the cruise does not work (will not even light up on the dash). The car will not start in gear so I ruled out neutral safety switch..maybe. All fuses are fine.

This happened about 4 months ago & my stoplight switch (on the brake pedal) was toast. I replaced that & it fixed the current issue in the process.

So what am I looking for here? Could it be the same stoplight switch?? Last time around I did NOT have brakelights, so it was easy to zero in on the stoplight switch. This time I do have brakelights.

There is a switch above the stoplight switch, I assume this is the brake interlock switch??? I have tried adjusting it & actuating it by hand but didnt see any difference (nothing different happened). Maybe its just so shot it wont matter? I wiggled wires in the area around, nothing. The stoplight switch was like that-totally worn out. Its not major but it irks me off!

Side note, the car is barely driven anymore. I put maybe 2000 miles on it this year total, after the stoplight switch change. It normally just sits in the garage under a cover Crying or Very sad Is the same stoplight switch bad? I replaced it with a parts store part, maybe $10, not GM.
