My wifes 99 Jeep GC had the same problem. I replaced the brake light switch and it fixed the problem. The switch is under the dash behind the brake pedal. It is about 10 bucks and requires no tools to replace. Good luck!

2007 Chrysler Sebring cruise control will not come on. I have read the manual, but I can't get the cruise control to work. I hit the on button and I get nothing. No light on the dash, nothing.


Some of these dont use a light you just hit the on button and set cruise remember if brake is hit it shuts down and you must be going over 40mph, if this doesnt work then check your fuses,good luck.

When you push the cruise control the light turns on on the dash but nothing happens what should i run test on 1998 dodge caravan se


I have the same problem on my 1998 Grand Caravan. Cruise control light comes on but it will not set. Have had the clock spring replaced (2 years ago) and BCM (6 months ago). Could be brake light switch on the brake pedal. Haven't been able to check it yet because of weather. Sounds easy to change and costs about $16.00. Will try to post if I get a new switch and it works.

I have a 2008 Honda CRV and for the life of me I cannot engage the Cruise control- I press the Cruise Button on the right of the steer wheel and nothing happens - nothing Help anyone ? Tks Nancy


The cruise-controls have 2-buttons that must be activated before it gets the car going when you remove your foot off the gas-pedal.
The cruise button is essentailly a switch that turns 'on' the cruise servo-motor that tells the sytems that you wants to use it, so it gets ready.
There are other three switches on the right-side of the steering wheel namely: resume accel; cancel; set decel.
To get your car to cruise: you must steady your speed and foot on the gas-pedal. You cannot just press the switches and expect the car to cruise. It takes about two-to-three seconds for the system to respond to a set cruising speed.
How to do it: accelerate to a speed of about 30-mph. Press the 'cruise' button on the dash first. Next you press 'set decel' button. This will turn 'on' the cruise control light on the instrument panel. Then wait a second or three and you would feel the cruise engagement. Any touch on the brake pedal will slow down the car and turns the cruise off. The 'cancel' button turns off the cruise light on the instrument panel.
If you hit the brake-pedal at any time for any reason, and you would like to continue cruising again, simply press the 'resume accel' button.
The cruise system works in conjunction with the braking system of the car. So all major parts of the braking system must be in good condition, otherwise the cruise system could shut off itself.

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 shows power on but will not turn.


the most common cause of this is the rotating ribbon contact for the steering wheel switches is defective, this contact ribbon is under the steering wheel and is commonly called the clock spring contact.
