You have a small solenoid under your brake pedal. Sort of a little plastic button that is probably sticking.. For easy trouble shooting there is an adjusting screw on it.. "this should be easy but just uncomfortable being under the dash. Adjust it back or take it out to see if the problem still persists.

Check the fuses, if they are blown, make sure they are the right size. If not, do not use bigger fuses than the circuit is supposed to have. If they are too small, use the correct size. If they are, do you have any extra equipment using the same circuit? Like a stereo or GPS or an alarm system? Move them to a different circuit. Check the relays to see if they are defective. Check all the bulbs to make sure they are the right ones too. Make sure they are in the right way. Check grounding wires, make sure they have good connections.

SOURCE: Cruise control not working, when turning ignition

sounds to me as if you need a new ignition switch there is a metal rod that allows the locking of the shifter and as far as cruise is concerned the lever itself goes bad often but check to ensure the vacuum line going from thet intake to the round ball is in tact and not rotted out or disconnected but the shifter is locked from the ignition switch itself if you remove the plastic housing that surrounds it you should see the rod that runs down the steering column and look for the obvious anything thats come disconnected etc .

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.

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.

Brake light switch on 2002 chevy siloverado


Cruise control deactivates once you press the brake pedal. The brake switch us an input to the cruise control module. So it is possible that your brake switch went bad keping the lights on and making the cruise control module think you are applying the brakes when in fact you are not. Replace the brake light switch and check operation.

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.

Brake lights not functioning and cruise control will not set.


Lift the pedal, and see if the light goes off, if it does, there is a switch on the pedal that is out of adjustment. If it does not go off, the switch could have fallen off, or it is broken. Anyways, it is under the dash, should be right up the brake pedal. First, try to adjust it, to get it closer to the brake pedal arm, if it doesn't go off, it should be bad, take it off, and take it to the auto parts place, they should be able to test it, with a multimeter.
This is probably why the cruise control does not work also, as when you drive down the road and hit the brakes, the cruise goes off.

2000 windstsar sel cruise control stopped working


Check to see if your brake lights are staying on.
I thought my cruise control stopped working too, but realized that it would not work because the brake light control on the brake pedal was stuck.
I changed the $40 control and the cruise control works.
