Q: Brake Switch on 2006 Pontiac G6

Sometimes my car won't go into gear from park. I have to press the brakes several times. Is that a brake switch, if so, how much does that cost to replace?

It could be the brake switch. The cost depends on if you have cruise control, ABS etc. I would say a switch is around $75 and it takes about 1/2 hour, so around $125.
I have an 06 also and I had the same problem for about a year. If u step on the brake pedal the brake lights don't illuminate causing the car not to shift out of park. The problem is corroded wirws in the bcm (body control module). Have your mechanic clean and lube the wires with a dielectric lubericant. Worked like a charm for my car and haven't had a problem since. Hope this works for u.
