Hi. Welcome to chat! My name is ***** ***** have been a dealer tech for 20 years. I will attempt to assist you with your concern today.

If the message PUT FOOT ON BRAKE keeps coming back, the car is not seeing your input from the brake pedal switch. Likely you need a new brake switch. But it is always a good idea to at least look at the wiring near the switch connector to make sure it is all in tact and nothing is broken.
