Default Brake Switch Sensor...ISSUE
Get in the truck and start it....Touch the brake pedal, and you can hear/feel the brake sensor engage...All 3 brake lights work properly...Lift your foot off the brake pedal, and you can hear the sensor dis-engage.....Then when I put the truck in forward or reverse and use the brake, I do not feel/hear the sensor open/close...Brake lights still work properly...Shut the truck off,open the door,hit the door lock switch, and when it locks the truck,I can hear the brake switch sensor quickly engage/dis-engage...New servicing dealer cant get me in till 1-9-17...I will have in hand a new sensor by noon Wednesday (special order) #68078700AE...This is the 4th part# change for this particular part since 2012...More JUNK made in Mexico/China maybe....Ironic....This oem mopar part costs around $17.00....It's the first oem part I can remember that actually costs LESS than the same part purchased from a local chain auto parts store for $23.99

I had bought mine from Napa but lo and behold once I removed it from the Napa box it was indeed an OE switch with the Chrysler logo.
