    Default Brake/drive shifter solenoid click.

    Today I decided to do some brake work. This what I did and the result.

    I removed all four calipers and cleaned and painted them red with that red ceramic paint, looks SWEET!

    Removed the front rotors and used a liquid rust remover and then cleaned them up and painted them silver with 1000 degree header paint. Looks nice!

    Followed all torque values, put it all back together, NEVER broke a brake line so I didn't need to bleed.

    Then, when I got in the car and started it up, I have an automatic, I hear and feel a clicking in the drive shifter. I called the dealer and spoke to a mechanic and he told me what I expected. It's the drive/brake solenoid. He told me he has a C6 and he never noticed the sound till a friend recently commented on it and now he can't NOT hear it. But mine was quiet yesterday.

    How in the world is this related? Or is it possible I never noticed this?

    This guy is a nine-year dealer mechanic and he knows his stuff and he said it's normal.

    Anyone's opinion?

    Thanks.

    Hi there,

    Its called the brake transmission shift interlock solenoid.

    Some make more noise than others, but certainly normal.
