Sounds like you're talking about the brake switch (sometimes called the "stop lamp switch", or "brake pedal position switch"). It may only need adjustment. Many brake switches are mounted on some kind of threaded shaft and adjusted with jam nuts. The brake switch sends the signal to the brake shift interlock that the brake is pressed, and allows the shifter to move out of 'park'. It also typically activates the brake lights
