AFTER A FEW DAYS OF OWNING THIS CAR I NOTICED THERE WAS AN ISSUE WITH THE BRAKE LIGHTS TURNING ON WHILE DRIVING. WHEN THIS HAPPENS IT ALSO SHUTS OFF THE CRUSE CONTROL TOO. WHEN YOU FIRST PRESS THE BRAKES THE LIGHTS SHUT OFF. PRESS THEM AGAIN AND THEY WORK FOR A FEW MINUTES. I SEARCHED THE INTERNET FOR HELP, AND NOTICED GM POSTED A SERVICE BULLETIN ON THIS ISSUE. GM ADVISED TO CLEAN, AND GREASE CONTACTS FOR BCM. I DID JUST THAT. THE CLEANING WAS ONLY A TEMPORARY FIX BECAUSE THE ISSUE RETURNED DAYS LATER. AROUND MAY OF 2014 I RECEIVED NOTICE THAT GM ISSUED SEVERAL RECALLS. THE CAR HAD BEEN BROKE DOWN UNTIL FEBRUARY OF 20015, AND IN APRIL IT WAS SENT TO MY LOCAL CHEVROLET DEALER TO HAVE THE RECALLS FIXED. SHORTLY AFTER FIXING THE RECALL ISSUES THE BRAKE LIGHT ISSUES RETURNED. I CONTACTED GM/ CHEVROLET AND THEY CONTACTED MY LOCAL DEALER WHO AGREED TO LOOK AT THE CAR AGAIN FOR FREE. AFTER THEY INSPECTED IT I WAS TOLD THE BRAKE SWITCH NEEDED REPLACED. ON MAY 28, 2015 MY LOCAL CHEVY DEALER REPLACED THE SWITCH. ON MAY 30, 2015 THE BRAKE LIGHT ISSUE RETURNED. THIS IS A FAMILY CAR AND IM AFRAID THAT SOMEONE WILL END UP HITTING US. CAN YOU PLEASE HELP.
