My 2006 f150 has new brakes and rotors,fluid full but my dash brake light stays on. Soon as you start it and the whole time you drive. Also the cruise quit too. Once the light went off then the cruise


This sounds like the brake light switch or the control switch on the brake pedal is bad or loose. Check under the dash above the brake pedal there should be one or two switches that tell the brake lights to come on and the cruise control to shut down.

My brake pads have been replaced, however the dash brake warning light still appears. In addition, the cruise control is not working. This has reset a few times and the light has gonen out adn the cruise...


Look at your brake master cylinder, open the top to it, and check your brake fluid. If low, that is why the brake light is on. Or check to see if your emergency brake is pushed in. Check your fuses for the cruise control. Hope this helps, James Booth

All the lights on the dash and interior as well as the headlights were flickering on and off suddnely. All the lights on the dash including all warning lights came on. Then a message appeared saying...


Just wanted to let everyone know what the problem was. The brake light switch was causing the problem.

When I spoke with the "GOOD" dealership they had asked if I was having a problem with the cruise control as well and that if I were it was more than likely the brake switch. At the time I didn't know yes or no, as I have mainly been city driving (not to easy to use the cruise). So I went for cruise and tried the cruise control and it didn't work, it came on but I was unable to set it for a specific speed.

So I headed over to the "GOOD" dealership (as they had this part in stock) purchased the brake switch for $15 and proceeded to change the switch out in the parking lot. It only took 5 minutes and no tools were required. Afterwards I went for a cruise and the cruise control was working fine, and I have yet to see the dreaded "Service Elec Brake System" warning message in 3 hours of driving.

Hope helps and keep us updated.

The read out on dash says service electric brake system,brakes seem to work ok and when i select cruise control it will not set


Do your brake lights work? Your cruise is tied in with your brake lights. If your brake lights are stuck on or there could be a bad switch or bad wire on the switch then your cruise wont work.

In 1998 2wd Grand Cherokee cruise control stopped working


Do the brake lights work now, as they should? The brake light switch generally triggers the cruise control to snooze.

Cruise control does not work


Replace the Brake light control switch located in front of the brake peddle under the dash this also turns the cruise off when braking. While driving put your foot behind the brake peddle and pull back toward you while doing this try your cruise if it works there are three possible causes or a combination of all three. Brake control Switch, Loose or sloppy brake pedal not activating the Brake switch properly or week brake pedal return spring. Good Luck.
