    It could be low on fliud or the gear lever might be broken.
    It's just a big switch really.
    Mine went early this year.

    Hadn't thought about the brake switch.
    Hope it is as they are about a tenner.
    If it turns out to be the Gear lever mine cost £375+vat and fitting was £175+vat.
    That was new and I would guess a second hand one would be about £50.
    You have to lower the gearbox a little to change it.
    the tell tale sign was no reading in the gear display on the dash.
    the car went into limp mode and could only move the lever with the engine off
