Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu

2 Answers

2005 malibu where is the brake light switch?

2005 chevy malibu, cannot move shifter without stepping ******* brake, cruise control will not work(maybe because it is linked to the brake pedal?) the brake light is on while driving and if you press easy they go off and then press down ******* the brake they go back on. This car has the movable brake and gas pedal. Mechanics cannot find the brake light switch that should be under the dash somewhere. That seems like it might be the problem? Any idea or schematic or something to show where it would be located? Thank you!

    ghornet,



    I am having the same problem with our 2004 Malibu LT. I would be very interested in a solution.

    I have the same problem. My mechanic replced the brake sensor (I am assuming this is the same as the brake position sensor) and the problem still exists. Also, my cruise control works when it wants to and the gas guage works only some of the time. If that wasn't all, I have to push very hard on the brake to get it out of park also. It often makes an odd sound when I do this. It is odd that som many problems are in common with the above poster. I like driving the little car, but it seems like something else goes wrong around every corner

There isn't one.  This car has a "brake and throttle by wire" system and the brake light switch is inside of that.  You have a bad brake position sensor.  Figure $240 or so at a dealer.

2012 Chrysler Town and Country wont shift out of park


Probably a problem with the shifter interlock system . Won't allow the gear selector to move from park with the engine running unless the driver is pushing on the brake pedal . Locking solenoid in the shifter , brake pedal switch , wiring etc... may even have a body control module in the loop controlling these system . Do the brake light's work ? Some of these system's have a release point in the shifter assembly . Don't know if this is your problem without checking it out .

The shifter is locked and engine turns on but can not shift from park


1st, have someone step on brake pedal while you check to see if your brake lights are working, if yes proceed to step 2, if not check your brake light fuse(Left side of dash fuse#20- 10amp)IF fuse is good replace brake light switch on brake pedal. 2nd Step (brake lights ok) Turn key on engine off, press and release brake pedal several times slowly, listen for a click and and pulse on shifter handle. IF yes you have a shifter malfunction replace shifter assembly. IF no, inspect shift interlock solenoid and or relace solenoid and cable. You should see a small access cover about the size of a peanut around base faceplate of shifter assembly use small screwdriver and remove cover, use screw driver to press button underneath plate and release shifter into reverse and drive gears(this is manual overide) if you need to move vehicle in the meantime.

Cruise control switch


There are several items to check. The first is at your brake pedal. You have a small switch on the brake pedal that will cut the power to the cruise control when you step on the brake.
