Why do brake lights stay on while diving and cruise control doesn't work?


If the brake light switch connected to the brake pedal has failed, the brake lights are stuck on which fools the cruise control into disengaging.

How to fix cruise control?


It seems this car has a problem with its cruise control if any of the brake lights are out or even if a bulb is flickering the cruise control will not engage. I would start my diagnosis there and also the cruise control fuse of course. hope this helps

Cruise turns off when we roll down the windows


Strange electrical problems can sometimes be attributed to a bad ignition switch. The battery should also be load tested, especially if it is more than 4 - 5 years old.

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.

On my 98 Catera the brake lights work during the day but when the headlights come on my brake lights stay on ? Also when the headlights are on my cruise control will not work ??? Any help ????????


Your cruise will not work if the brake lights are on just like the cruise disengages when you hit the brakes.As far as the brake lights with the headlights,sounds like there is something crossed.If you hold your breaklights on with your headlights off is there a glow of the headlights or your running lights.If your rear bulbs are the round push in and turn type make sure they are installes correctly.You may have one where the contact on the bottom of the bulb is causing a jump of power from your running/parking light over to the brake light side.Well hope this helps and good luck.

01 Hyundai Elantra - Cruise Control Doesn't Work w/ Headlights On


I had same problem (cruise control/dashboard lights) for the past month with my 2000 Elantra. Replace the tail lights bulbs - my problem was caused by a problem with the double filament within the bulb. Essententially, there was a short when I turned on the lights or hit the brakes.

I did this last night and everything is working properly now.

Cruise control problem


The cruise control is terminated by the brake lamp circuit, Check the brake, tail lamp for water or a short. Your turn signals are on a different circuit. Check the bulb sockets closely for corrosion. Failing this check connectors for the tail lights for possible water penetration, or loose connections.

Hope this ia of some help
