Hey all. I bought a 2021 Buick Encore GX. I noticed a click when I press the brake. Anyone know what this is? Should I have this looked at?

My 2020 clicks, my guess is it’s the electrical brake switch engaging that lets the computer know the brake pedal is activated and so it can activate your lights and monitor the sensor inputs for reactions specific to braking.

I wonder if it is the brake/shift interlock? You have to press the brake pedal to shift. There’s a pin (I think, or something like that) that has to pull out so you can move the shifter. That movement might be the click sound? I’ve noticed that sometimes in other cars over the years.

Encore GX select awd
It's the brake pedal position sensor switch assembly- it turns on the brake lights , disengages the cruise , allows it to be started , put in drive etc.

Brand new 2022 with 200 miles does it, very annoying. Figured it was a bad position sensor. Anyone have it fixed ???

If you brake and let off several times it stops for the next couple of brake taps. Then a click comes again.
