check for broken wires under the floor shifter at the BTSI connector..the 06 impala had shift solenoid problems often. If thats ok then...remove the negative battery cable and turn key to the on position...try to shift in to Neutral...if your are able to shift, the brake switch is faulty.
Good luck...i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.

#08-05-22-009: Intermittently Brake Lights (Stop Lamp) Do Not Function Correctly, Extended Travel to Shift Out of Park, Cruise Control Inoperative, DTC C0161/C0277 Set (Perform Repair as Outlined) - (Dec 4, 2008)
Subject: Intermittently Brake Lights (Stop Lamp) Do Not Function Correctly, Extended Travel to Shift Out of Park, Cruise Control Inoperative, DTCs C0161/C0277 Set (Perform Repair as Outlined)
Models: 2004-2007 Chevrolet Malibu, Malibu Maxx
2008 Chevrolet Malibu Classic
2005-2009 Pontiac G6
2007-2009 Saturn AURA
Some customers may comment that intermittently the brake lights do not function correctly. Other symptoms may include extended pedal travel required to shift out of PARK, cruise control does not function correctly, and DTC C0161 and/or C0277 may be set.
The most likely cause of this condition is high resistance due to terminal fretting corrosion in the body control module (BCM) C2 connector (specifically pins C2-18, C2-31 and C2-59).
DO NOT replace the BCM for this condition. Disconnecting the C2 connector, adding dielectric silicone grease and reconnecting the C2 connector per the procedure below will correct the high resistance condition due to terminal fretting corrosion.
Remove the right side front floor console side trim panel to access to the Body Control Module (BCM).
Locate the C2 connector on the BCM.
Unlatch the C2 connector and disconnect the C2 connector from the BCM.
Reconnect the C2 connector back on the BCM and re-latch.
Repeat Steps 3 and 4 (this step cleans up the terminal fretting corrosion).
Using the Tech 2®, verify the brake pedal position sensor (BPPS) voltage is between:
• 0.88V - 2.11V (for 2004-2006 model years)
• 0.73V - 1.47V (for 2007-2009 model years)
Check for proper operation of the brake lights.
• If the brakes lights are operating properly, remove the C2 connector again from the BCM and proceed to Step 8.
• If the brake lights are not operating properly, proceed to Step 12.
Apply dielectric lubricant (clear gel) GM P/N 12377900 (In Canada, use P/N 10953529) on the BCM C2 pins (apply with a one-inch nylon bristle brush) on all the C2 connector pins (this will treat the pins against fretting corrosion).
Reconnect the C2 connector back on the BCM and re-latch.
Reinstall the right side front floor console side trim panel.
Using the Tech 2®, check that the BPPS ratio is equal to BPPS learned home when the brake pedal is not depressed.
• If they are equal, brake lamps should be operating correctly and no further steps are necessary.
• If they are not equal, perform the Brake Pedal Position Sensor Calibration procedure in SI to complete the repair.
Check the brake lights for proper operation. If incorrect, refer to SI and perform normal diagnostics. Source(s): gm tech

Sounds like the fuse blew out again. Look at the wiring that goes to the washer fluid pump and check for any place where it might have rubbed against something causing it to short out. Fix this 'short' before you replace the fuse again or you will continue to have problems.
