I don't think so. When you depress the brake petal it activates a solenoid that releases a spring loaded metal stop. First thing to do is to make sure you have a working brake light system . If you don't the release won't work. If you have a bad brake light switch READ the instructions that comes with the new switch. It's critical that you install the switch per instructions. You only have one shot at it. There are ways to un-lock the system and you might find them in your owners manual. Ford explains it in it's manual, Dodge doesn't and they un-lock differently.
