Re: how to replace cruise on/off switch in 2001 buick
No you should not have to there a 2 covers that surround the collumn then you should be able to change out the cruise. Especially on newer cars James be careful on these believe it or not everything is controlled by those wires in the collumn. If you need any more go to collisionrepairadvice.com

It is most likely the multifunction switch in the steering column that controls your cruise control that will stop the brake lights from and I have fixed this problem many times this will be the problem.
Anytime you are working on the steering wheel or steering column, the battery should be disconnected and the power drained from the car. If a wire is shorted in the air bag circuit the bag could deploy. Even if the ignition is turned off. The standard procedure is to leave the door open and disconnect the battery, then wait 5 or 10 min to drain power from the car.
We had the same problem and ended up replacing the switch. We used a small flat-tip screwdriver and lifted along the edge of the switch. With the switch removed from the steering wheel, we disconnected the wire connector and installed the new switch by reversing the order.
the cruise control switch comes out of the steering wheel. you can use a small flat head screw driver to unwedge it from is hole in the steering wheel. there will be a wire attached to the back, lift the clip holding it the wire to the switch. installation is the reverse.
I am describing the procedure for the "On/Off" switch, I did not try the one you mention. Buy the switch anywhere ( about $15 ), then use a sharp tool ( small knife, screwdriver, anything ) to gently pry the old one from its socket. It is not glued or screwed in or anything, just squeezed tightly in the socket. Once the switch is out, pull the cable, connect it to the new one, insert back in the socket and press gently. No force necessary, it comes out easily.
