I did not know this, I appreciate the info, Thanks. I just hope my feebly mind will recall this if I ever have a need. Old age sucks.Yup. Pretty common. Learned of it on emergency call from daughter at college. Key on, neutral start procedure is best bet until you replace brake light switch. I got switch at Autozone. There was an issue even with that where the contact is too far away and brake lights only come on after a harder brake vs coasting the brake. A simple waher or shim to fill the gap has been in place with no problems for a few years now.
