I have never had the problem so I cant tell where its located. Although I can tell you that you can pick the part up at local Chevy or GM dealership with a parts department.

Before you change anything, see if your cruise control works. If it doesn't it is likely the switch for the cruise control. It screws in and tends to work its way out. It's probably out of adjustment. I got that code for ever. I changed the neutral safety switch out and it kept coming back. Somebady told me about the cruise control switch. I adjusted it and the code never came back.

mine threw that code and the gm guys said it could be anything from a switch all the way up to the ecu. i did some looking and found out that it is a little switch mounted close to where your master cyl connects to the clutch petal, i screwed it in because it appeared to be not making contact with the petal. after i tried that, my cruise worked and it did not throw the code again.
hope that helped

I have the same code. I still have to check to see if maybe the cruise control is working or not.

Here is a picture of it. Its located right behind the clutch pedal

Would my car pass inspection with this code?

Im thinking that I am going to have to replace it. Does anyone know how it is held in place? Hopefully it wont be too difficult or time consuming

that switch that is circled is not the one that needs to be replaced. that is the switch that will allow the car to start. below that circle is the metal bar on the clutch pedal that hits that switch and the switch below that. the bottom switch needs to be pressed in when the clutch pedal is not being pressed down. i think i solved the problem. I have that switched adjusted as far out as i can. It needs to be pressed in more. I am thinking of getting a stick on wheel balancing weight and attaching it to the pedal bar. Doesnt sound like a bad idea right?

^I'm not a big fan of repairs using tape, but this might work. For a while.

Is there a bracket that could be bent to give a little more adjustment?

there are two little white tabs that hold that switch to the bracket. Squeeze them together and then pull the switch off the bracket. then twist the end it will get longer or shorter depending on which way you twist it, then push it back in. its as simple as that.

I just did it and the code is gone! I have posted some pictures of the switch before and after adjustment.

Like Metallicsniper mentioned:

Step one: You simply remove the switch (white) from its connection as pointed out in the pictures.

Step two: Once you have done this twist the switch into position. Then you re-connect it to its connection and you are done. Clear the code and it should go away for good.

When I bought my current car, I had this same problem, same code.. The guy driving it down to me said it had no cruise control. I did some searching (on LS1tech ) and found the culprit. I looked under the clutch pedal, and the little white switch was just dangling. The bracket/clip was broken and would not be able to hooked back up stock. So i creatively used a ziptie to hold it into place. Have not had an issue since.
