Q: Is the brake switch somehow able to impact acceleration? on 2012 Ford Focus

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Brake lights were on. Traced to excessive play on the brake pedal. When driving with this condition, the engine would not allow acceleration. Is there a connection?

Agree, but if it is as simple as adjusting the brake switch (which we validated by "holding the brake in position with left foot"), then I would just as soon save a trip to the shop. I am looking to see if there is a logic, such as ABS, or Cruise Control, etc, that uses the switch input as a part of the logic. If no answer, I will be taking it to the shop.
Well try adjusting the switch to see if it helps! I am sure if the brake lights are on all the time it has to effect performance.
Especially after that Toyota fiasco!
