You just re-installed the old switch. Can tell that because the adjustment lever is already turned. You neglected that part of the process.

I have a 2006 Dodge Ram 3500. The brake light on the dashboard comes on sporadically while driving. Will the replacement of the brake light switch fix that issue?
