Electrical problem
1997 Chevy Truck 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 172000 miles

I've have to replace the brake light switch (4) times over the last 6 years and now it's bad again. Twice it was the contact that allows you to pull it out of park that went bad. This time it's the brake light circuit contact that's failing. Is this an issue with this switch or do I have a problem elsewhere. I may be just the lucky guy that gets the defective switches. Has anyone else had this problem?

Do you
have the same problem?

Could be the turn and hazard switch that's acting up the brake circuit goes thru there.

I installed the new switch tonight and the brake lights are working fine again. I'll see how long this switch lasts.
