Default Brake Ligjt Switch

2013 Sport Limited

My gear shifter has been having a hard time getting out of brake. Traction control ABS and descent light have also been. Found what I believe to be the culprit, a failing brake light switch. Ordered STANDARD MOTOR PRODUCTS SLS 186 (Rock Auto) as the replacement. Pulled old one out and it was a Niles (Nissan) PA66GF33. So needles to say Iím stuck. Why would this be a Nissan part?

And this will fix my problem correct?

The Nissan part is the OEM Subaru part. It also failed - A LOT. Subaru had a recall for this issue https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/201...9V149-9018.pdf
If the recall has not been performed on your car you could have gotten this fixed for free.
Read the linked recall - it will tell you the proper method to get the switch adjusted correctly.

Oh yeah, Forgot to add - yes, if you brake light switch is bad it will cause that problem.
