Chevy Cobalt ticking when brake pedal depressed?

I recently had the battery changed in my 05 Cobalt. After the change there has been a ticking from behind the dash, it almost sounds like a turn signal. It only happens when the brake has been depressed and will continue to click/tick for a few seconds after the pedal has been released. It doesn't matter whether the car is in park or in motion, as soon as the brake pedal is touched the ticking starts.

Try resetting the system-reboot- disconnect the battery leave it un hook for 2 hrs then hook back up-ticking noise is probably a relay that is dealing with a voltage issue-other than that a trip to the dealer might be a good idea- cheers Denny

You poor thing ,dont you you realise its one of them american thingys where the brake light is also the indicator ,totally illegal here in europe where it has to be a amber indicator light anyway the fault lies for sure in the fancy stop light switch ,my best advice would be to buy rear europeon rear lights and have them fitted and that monstosity of a stop light switch with all the relevant horrors of the wiring discarded in favour of a simplier system

SOURCE: ticking noise

It is part of the waste gate just above the gas tank. It periodically checks for leaks and pressurizes and releases. Gives a ticking noise when it does this. Not a problem and GM is aware of this and said its normal on our cars.

How do i fix my Chevy Cobalt. Floor shifter stays stuck in park postion. I am pressing brake pedal and pushing the shifter button.


have a helper. tell him to press brake pedal. you come to back of vehicle and see if the brake lights work when helper press the pedal. if lights don't work the tail light fuse has blown. so you cant take from park. and on some brands if horn fuse blown you cant take from park.

After what it started to act like that? Something was done on the car recently? I'd say there is some mix up with the wires somewhere.

05 chevy aveo brake lights will not come on when brake is pressed. All other lights work. Already checked the fuses and the bulbs, both are good.


Check that the brake light switch is properly adjusted. It will be under the dash at the top of the pedal arm near where it is connected at the top. Basically, the switch is depressed when the pedal is at rest and releases when you depress the pedal.

It screws in or out to adjust.

Good luck.

Third brake light on constantly, other brake lights seem not to work at all


It sounds like you need a brake light switch. It is mounted under the dash on the pedal assembly. It is easy to change, just twists in place. Good Luck
