2005 Chevrolet Corvette Questions

it feels like the switch isn't disengaging when I press the brake pedal. repeatedly pressing and releasing the brake pedal doesn't seem to work, but sometimes when I turn off the engine, open the door, close the door and restart the engine it works. Nothing seems to work all of the time...

This will be the second time I have replaced the passenger seat belt because it will lock up and will not release. I have a 5 year old child and i was out of town and once again the seat belt locked and I had to drive 200 miles with a child and no seat belt. Any advice on how to fix this problem...
