I have a 2002 oldsmobile alero. Also having brake light

I have a 2002...

I have a 2002 oldsmobile alero. Also having brake light problems. All of the bulbs work when running lights are on, just nothing when I press on the brakes. Replaced both the stop light fuse and the cruise control fuse .pretty sure it is the switch on the brake pedal. Could you please tell me how much money that repair might cost me ?

Mechanic's Assistant: While using the cruise control can you accelerate or decelerate? Have you checked the fuses?

Cruise control dose not work and I have changed the fuses

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Alero yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have changed the fuses as I have said. And I plan on taking it to a shop just don't want to get ripped off

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's it

Ok, yes I would have to agree since you have checked the other possibles. To change the switch is . booktime of .5 hours and the switch runs from $10-$14 in my area, Lets assume you take to a shop that shop rate is $100 per hour, this means labor will be $50 plus the part? =$64 on the high end. I have gone and attached a file to this post, It shows how the switch is replaced, for your reference

Please leave a start rating on your page for my service provided today, Thanks Randall
