The brake light switch at the brake pedal controls the brake lights and the gearshift release solenoid. It should have no effect on the signal lights. You may have 2 problems. You can try tapping the brake light switch and moving the contact plunger by hand to see if the brake lights/shift release will work. If it starts operating again, I would replace it immediaetly before it fails completely

SOURCE: Parking break light is on & Chimming When P. Break is released

On your parking brake assembly is a single wire switch. You can unplug it, but you will have to remember not to drive with it set. To replace the switch the whole assembly will have to come out. The switch is about $20 and labor should run about two hours. Good Luck

SOURCE: An automatic 2002 Mazda Millenia V6 2.5L is stuck in park

When you experience this problem, check to see if your brake lights are coming on. It could be as simple as a brake light switch malfunction. If the brake lights are functioning as the problem is occurring then you could for example have a problem with the shift interlock solenoid.

SOURCE: 2001 jaguar s type - Right tail lamp failure

There is a harness that you unplugged for the rear tail lamp. Make sure it is fully pressed and locked. This is always the cause on jags for tail lamp failure.

Take it back to them. It sounds like a sensor came loose. I'd take it back and have them warranty their work.

When slowing down & stopping 2005 Mazda tribute sputters and dies


Sounds like it could possibly be a vaccume problem, the computer sees that the vaccume has a low pressure and thus fludding the engine, or visa versa, it's seeing too high of a pressure and cutting the fuel comsumption to a minumum enough to make the engine sputter and die.. Does this happen when the cars in Netural or Reverse or Park? Just Drive?

I had a Mazda 626 with a similar problem, the car seemed to 'shut down' with no warning, even at highway speeds, as if I just turned the ignition key to 'Off'; After trying to fix it unsuccessfully by replacing several electrical parts, the problem was found to be a defective ignition switch, it was replaced and the problem went away.
