Hi there, I am Cam.

On your Saturn, couple of questions.
First have you changed any of your bulbs to LED's or do you have any other issues with the wiring or lights?

Second, where are you getting the replacement switch from?

when i replace the switch i got one from advance auto parts another one from oreilys the last one from dealer no bulbs needed to be replace they all came on when i put in new switch in but they last only a week
Saturn Mechanic: Gm Tech (Cam), Saturn Mechanic replied 10 months ago

Ok but the bulbs in the vehicle are not upgraded?

Did you have any troubles putting in the new switch?
This might be a bad connector on the brake switch. If the terminals inside are failing, it would cause issues such as this. I suggest replacing the connector end, get a warranty switch from the dealer and put some electronics grease on the connector. This will help protect it from heat and prevent premature failure.
