It could be a few things 1. Bad shift solenoid 2. Worn band ( A crowbar can be used to press on the servo cover. Try to estimate how much it moves. The spec is .075 or a bit more than 1/16". 1/8" is about the working limit. At 3/16" the band will begin slipping in either 2nd or 4th gear or both.) 3. worn or cracked servo 4. Valve body issue The brake switch info is below ([;ease not your's will be similar to the g6 shown) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kW6D7Phn6c4 Start by checking for any trouble codes and then examine mechanical issues.

Ok and thank you . I will check the servo cover
