    Brake light switch

    Had one replaced at 21k. In the shop for issues with the the new one at 42k. Dealer said this one is working but needs adjusted. My symptoms were the same hill assist, ABS and traction control lights came on then back off. I have a click under the shifter when the car decelerates below 10 mph. Service tech said the shift lock is activating due to the BLS. Anyone else have this? Fortunately they are covering the repair. I plan to report this to SOA. 2 bad BLSs in under 45k not happy.
