      would like some advice and diagram on changing the brake sensor switch. My switch is working intermittently, on again off again. Should I just change it?? adjust it??

      Please advise.

      thanks

      I have been messing with the switch on the brake, but I cannot see the mechanics of any pressure switch. Please advise on the mechanism.

      brake pedal position sw

      would U know if the adjustable pedal option I have on my '05 Limited Exp would have the cruise deactivation sw. at the brake pedal rather than under the hood?

      thanks

      problem solved
      guy who just installed remote start pulled out a wire at the BPPS (under the dash)
      This directly affects cruise
      dealer is fixing at his cost - wire was actually pulled out of the metal spade lug
