Anything is possible, test the switch with a test light or ohm meter. it is unlikely that normal use would over depress the switch, and the switch is open when pressed, and closed when released.

My 2007 chev aveo wont start and cant move gear shift

most cars the brake light switch has to work properly for it to come out of gear and start properly. check this switch! Also First check to see if you have brake lights (if not the switch may have failed) secondly when with the ignition key on when you press the brake pedal do you hear a click from the area of the gear shift lever each time you press the brake pedal? If not the control module, wiring or solenoid may have a problem. First check all your fuses! Hope this helps, Good-Day!

I am trying to make sure my brake controller is properly wired. my brakes do not work automatically when I press the brake pedal,but do work when I manually use switch on brake controller.

Use a test light and find the wire that has power when you press the brake pedal. This is the wire that you need to tap into for you trailer brake controller.

My 2007 dodge charger se/sxt sedan will not shift out of park

More than likely your brake lights are not working either. Not sure if they have separated the brake lights from the brake safety switch. But more than likely your brake switch on your brake pedal is not working properly. You have to press the brake to shift from park and the computer is not seeing that you are pressing the brake, and not unlocking the shifter.

Fix cruise control switch on brake pedal

You'll need to repace the switch itself if it is defective. These are available at most auto-parts stores, and looking at the switch itself will help in determining what you actually need to do in removing it. It fits into a set position on the side of the dash nearest to the driver, just in front of the brake pedal arm, and is operated by pressing on the brake pedal, which causes the switch to make contact internally and pass voltage through to the brake light or to the cruise control system.

To remove, disconnect wiring harness, remove the front retaining nut and once it's removed, slide the switch out of the mount, just compare the new switch to the old one to make sure they are the same, then reinstall after putting the nuts & washers at approximately the same location on the new one, once installed, test the adjustment by making sure the brake light is not on without the brake pedal being pushed, then check the cruise control, it should engage properly as well as disengage when you press on the brake pedal. Adjustments are made by adjusting the mounting position either forwards or backwards with the mounting hardware.

If you are having problems with this, verify the voltage coming into one side of the switch with the pedal not being pressed, then the voltage should pass through the switch, when the brake pedal is pressed. On a dual switch (see below) ground voltage goes through the Cruise control part of the switch-depending on the model, but on either type, removing the connection from the switch and verifying continuity when the switch is activated will determine if it is working properly, as long as the switch breaks continuity when not being activated.

Some of these switches are dual purpose, working both the brake light and the cruise control, some are individual switches with one for each, and on some cars, the brake light switch works for both the cruise and the brake light.

Good luck.

Brake lights do not work checked fuses & changed baulbs

HI. The brake light switch may be the culprit here. This is located just under the brake pedal shaft. This switch can become unstable overtime if the structure is not sound, or defective. When inspecting, make sure the wire connectors are connected properly. Make sure the contacts are not corroded, or separated from the switch itself. You can also test the current by using a meter. Use one of the bulb housing clips, and attach the meter prongs to the connector prongs inside both of the brake light connector clips. While you allow your assistant to press the brake pedal, register the current level. If there is not a registered level present when the pedal is pressed replace the switch.

Note(To rule out a wiring harness issue, simply test the brake light switch for continuity)

Cruise control not working properly

Check the brake switch below the brake pedal. It may think the brake is being pressed if that switch is not working properly. Also check for vacuum hose leak or damage in the same area.
