check your firewall. Check there are no cracks around where the cable goes through, what your describing is a common symptom of a cracked firewall. Could also be a stretched cable, but I would be checking the firewall, its free to look, its a PITA to fix though

OR also, check your pedal box, make sure there are no cracks in it, another common issue that present the same way as you are describing.
