    So I put my foot firmly on the brake and push the start button. This always worked to get the "ready." Now the car just displays all of the warning lights, but I don't see the ready light. I have to try two or three times to get "ready" to go on. What's going on? Is something in the process of failing? Should I take the car into the shop before I drive it again?? Thanks as always!

    Do you have a check engine light once it goes to Ready? Have you checked the brake light to verify 100% brake switch operation?

    I don't have a check engine light once it goes to ready. When it goes to ready, it's fine. I Haven't checked the brake light.

    If in a garage, just watch to see if brake lights light up the garage door when you press on the pedal.
