Probably a brake switch. Common fault. Dies every 100,000kms or so. Cost about $8 to $16.

Stick your head under and look at the brake pedal. There will be a plug with two wires going into something. That is the brake switch. First time to replace will take a while to figure. After you do it once, takes 2 minutes.
