Brake warning light on, speedo needle jumps when applying brakes on Jeep Grand Cherokee

A short circuit in the shift interlock cable solenoid can cause various symptoms—the speedometer needle may jump or vibrate when the brakes are applied, a fuse can blow in the fuse panel, or the brake warning light may illuminate. The shift interlock cable may need to be replaced.
