Did you find out what the problem is? I have the same issue with the noise pushing on the brakes when I take it out of park and the brake lights staying on all the time. Thanks.

brake light

its Body Control Mod call Pontiac bcuz there was a recall on them but only on certain VIN #s and mine wasnt one of them surprise surprise. But its located under dash on driver side and all they need to do is spray some lubricant on wires bcuz they have corrossion on them. Only cost me $40 dollars and Pontiac called local Pontiac dealer to set up time , and then when i took it in i watched them spray wires so if it happend again i do it myself. The dealer wanted to do a diagnastic check to see if that is what problem was and i said hell no , they just wanted to get more money. It only takes couple min to do , i hope this helps. Let me know what happens

how much was the brake switch installed by dealer? Or did you do it yourself?

dealer did it...cost me 150 bucks for that job plus they took a nail outta one of my tires and patched that up so it should be less than that.

Did your car do the brake thing alot? My brake lights came on once when my cruise control was on and it shut my cruise control off. But the cruise control started working fine after I tapped the brakes and the brake lights went off. And I have never had any problems shifting out of park. Also my vehicle was not included in the recall imagine that.

haha yeah i feel ya with the recall man. and the brakes seemed to be ALWAYS on leading up to when i had it fixed. you might not have the same prob as me so it might just be the spray lubricant

Alright, I havent had any problems since so I guess I'll wait until the problem reoccurs.

my brake lights seem to be staying on more regularly, so I am going to try to put some dielectric grease on teh BCM. Has anyone done this, I know I have to disconnect the battery, do I need to take the whole dash off or can I just pull the right side center console trim off. Wasn't able to find anything on google about how to remove that panel.

This thread was very helpful. I had the same problem with brake lights staying on and making a strange noise when first pressing down on them. I bought some Dielectric Silicon and put it on the connectors on the BCM and the problem is gone. Thanks all.

I have read several things on google saying the bcm is on the right side, and someone on here said it was on the left side. I was dielectric grease on the one plug on the left panel and on 1 of 3 plugs on the right panel, the one with the bolt that secures it in place. I havent had any problems since I did this, but the car did start rough the first couple times, and for future reference dont use your remote starter until youv'e started your car a couple of times and drove around the block. I used my remote starter and it just kept cranking over until I put the key in and shut it off then started it with the key and it started rough meaning took longer than normal to turn over but was fine once I drove around the block and restarted it.
