OK, so do the rest of the lights in the steering wheel work? Any check engine light?

No check engine light comes on

OK, This is likely a brake switch failure. I would change it knowing how cheap they are. There are more than one set of contacts so its possible the switch is still working the lights, but not the other functions .

Is hard to replace or does a verified mechanic got to do it
Expert:  GM Tech (Cam) replied 1 year ago.

Very easy, on the side of the brake pedal and maybe a 2 out of 10 for difficulty.
