Park brake warning light ''on''

Park brake warning light is on which means the cruise control won't work. I took the center console apart to check the switch at the brake lever. This switch works fine. Any idea what to do next?

Parking Brake Light won't turn off, Cruise Control won't engage


Get down and look at parking brake assembly, If you see an electrical connector, unplug it, see if that helps? If it doesn't help or causes other issues just plug it back in.
Of course that isn't the proper fix. If something wrong with parking brake assembly, get it checked out.

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

My cruise control won't work and my brake light is on. The car is a 1994 Toyota Camry. Thank you.


Your brakes warning light or your actual brake lights? If it is your warning light that can come Monday if you're park break is on or slightly on or the switch that says that it is on is faulty, in which case it may tell your cruise control to turn off. If your brake lights stay on there's something pul to you about your switch by the pedal as your cruise will not work when you hit the bricks and this will be perceived as you hitting the brakes. A break warning light will also, come on if your brake fluid is low.
