I think this switch which is adjustable is located above the brake pedal on a braket with a locknut. May be the bump rubber on the pedal lever is broken.

I would check the brake light switch first. It's a common problem. The switch is located down on the brake pedal and is easy to change. Use a 12 volt test light to check for power at the switch. You've changed the bulbs or checked for voltage at the brake light sockets first?

If the shifter will not come out of park, check the brake light fuse. The shifter release solenoid uses the brake light switch to unlock the shifter.

It' likely, if bulbs are OK that the turn signal switch is burned out. If the switch fails, it won't allow the brake light signal through to the brake light wiring. Go to: for the 4 page analysis. See: "(American Car) Both Lower Brake Lights Not Working" To determine if the switch is bad test the incoming and outgoing current. If brake light switch power is present at the turn signal switch but not at any outgoing brake light wires, the turn signal switch has probably failed. This is a Buick design issue because keeping your foot on the brake or if the brake switch sticks keeping the brake lights on, the circuit will fail due to amperage overload.

Check to see if you have knocked the brake light switch off of its mount. It is located above the brake pedal.
