If you have to step on the brake to start it could be the brake switch with is just above the pedal... or it could be in the steering column.. I had this problem on a 99 Tahoe and I used some electrical contact lube on the plunger and it has worked ever since, sometimes I could pump the brake pedal and it would work, but not the most reliable way as it is not a fix might just get you going..
