Hi .

This is a brake warning light for the SBC system if the brakes are working just fine then

Most likely just a bad brake light switch .

This brake switch also activates the shift solenoid to release the shifter so you can select R and P .

First check the fuses.

Best to be safe is to get hooked up to a diagnostic scan tool and check for SBC codes .

Brake switch is located on the top half of the foot brake pedal .

For further assistance with this issue please get back to me with the reply box below .
