later software to the 16P DLC.
2. With the engine turned off, check the TPS
sensor voltage and the relative throttle
position. The TPS sensor voltage should read
0.49 volt; the relative throttle position should
• If both the TPS sensor voltage and the
throttle position are OK, then continue with
• If the TPS sensor voltage doesn't read 0.49

Hi! Two things to look at... Yes it can be the brake switch but please have the neutral switch be checked too. These are the common problem why the shifter stucks. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Check fuse #41, if its good then the brake switch may need replacing. You can test the power to the switch by the use of a voltage meter touching the LG/RD (light green/red) wire with the red side of the meter and the other probe to ground. If more than 10 volts its good. You can check the BPP (brake pedal position switch) by installing a fused jumper wire from LG/RD to the RD/LG wires. Connect a 10A fused jumper wire between C242, Circuit 10 (LG/RD), harness side and C242, Circuit 810 (RD/LG), harness side. And check the brake lights, if they go on then the switch is defective. Hope this helps you.
