2004 Saturn Ion - Parking brake will not go off. Precision Tune says "brake float switch broken - held in by piece of silicon. Pedal hard and functioning normal.

I have a 2001 mazda tribute and i can't get it to engage into gear out of park. I turn my car on and off, pump my brakes several times and it would finally come out of park. Now it's getting worse. My brakes make a hissing sound when i'm not pressing on them and i can't seem to find where i could possibly bypass the brake-shift interlock switch or whatever it is. I'm pretty sure it's electrical because i have put more money in this suv than it's worth. It has a new engine, new transmission and a

I have a Chevy 2005 uplander. When I try to shift out of park it stays locked up. In the manual it says that there is a torque lock and my mechanic says that it should release when the brake is depressed. Sometimes it does but 50 to 60% of the time it stays locked and it takes several minutes of working with it to get it to release. Do you think that the switch in the brake pedal needs to be replaced, if there might be another problem, can this switch be bypassed, and what the repair cost mi

I am trying to install a Clarion NZ409 Radio/DVD player in my 1997 Dodge 2500 extended cab diesel truck. I need to hook up one wire to the parking brake signal cord so that video will play only when the car has the parking brake on. I need to know the color and location of the wire to splice into at the instrument panel wire harness.
You can do like I did installing it in my 04 Civic Hybrid - find another wire that supplies a constant +5VDC and then it will believe the parking brake is always engaged and allow video. It's not legal to watch video while driving, but in my case, t ... 1997 Dodge Ram 2500 Club Cab
2002 chevrolet cavalier with 150k miles. Brake lights (all three including light in rear window), turn signals and hazard lights do not work. Parking lights do work. Head lights work, low beam and high beam. No blown fuses. The owner just replaced the multifunction switch with new one from O'reilly autoparts.

So, the brake lights on my 2002 Subaru Impreza were staying on, and now they won't turn on at all, which means I can't get the car out of park. Is there a way to tell which switch it is? The brake switch or the brake relay switch? The brakes were turning off when I pulled up on the brake pedal. Does this mean it is the switch by the pedal?
Yeah, it's the brake light switch (just above brake pedal) ... 2002 Subaru Impreza

Our rear brakes were bad so ordered new ones. while waiting for them to make their way to the auto parts store the brakes stopped working. i would push them down to the floor and barely stop. and the back end was leaking brake fluid, BAD. so we parked it and got the new brakes. we changed them out, and took the car for a test drive and now the parking brake works, which it didn't before, but the brakes don't. at all. i don't know what to do.
