Microsoft Xbox Wheel Troubleshoot - Brake stays on all the time! - Does anyone else owning the wheel experience this?

To anybody out there willing to help:

I have bought a used Microsoft Xbox Racing Wheel and having recently started playing Dirt 3 on it I have noticed everytime I let go the gas pedal completely the braking lights turn on and when the car eventually stops it starts backing up in reverse at full speed!!! Does anyone else experience this? I get the same problem in Dirt 2, or Forza 3... Does anyone have a solution/suggestion for me?

The only thing I can think of having done wrong is the wire connecting the pedals to the wheel which I have changed with a regular telephone wire as the original had a significant amount of wear... 

I opened up the pedals and other than replacing the switch I don't know what to do...

Thank you to anyone willing to help!

What happens if you use the original cable? Do you still have the same issue?

I would like to try but I threw it away months ago assuming it was the same as a telephone wire... and I have no clue where to get an original replacement. Do you own the wheel? Do you get the same problem?

Oh, alright. I haven't had the same issue with the Wireless Racing Wheel I have access to. It does sound like there might be an issue with the cable. You are correct, it is a standard RJ-11 cable. Would you be able to try another one?

I'll try another one when I get it... but that one was brand new so I doubt that's the issue. Oh well thanks for the suggestions but I'll probably sell my xbox together with the wheel...
