No need to worry about the interlock system. The problem is with the brake switch on the brake pedal. Either it is out of adjustment or needs to be replaced.
You must get this problem solved because the switch is working intermittently and sometimes while driving, the brakes lights do not show when you are braking, this is a safety issue.
To replace the switch is quite easy but you must be able to squeeze under the dash to get at it.
Unplug the switch wire connector.
Unloosen the lock nut (12 mm hex nut)
Unscrew the switch from the seat and you can put in the new switch.
DO NOT over adjust the new switch. There must be at least 1 mm of free travel between switch and pedal. Over adjustment would cause premature brake wear and braking problems.
