If your third brake light is working, then we know it is not the brake switch. Get a test light and check to see if you have power at the light socket. If power is present possible bad ground. If no power, check connections inside of the trunk. Also choose a spot just behind the back seat to be sure that power is on the brake light wire, this will check for possible break along wire.

Cruise control Does Not Work, Service Electrical System always comes on, Traction Control Light comes On


make sure 3rd brake light works, most likely you have a code in the EBCM (antilock brakes), some codes disable the cruise control, possible vehicle or output speed sensor or wheel speed sensor.

Cruise control stopped working on a 08 Chevrolet HHR


I just got the perfect answer to this yesterday. It's a $5 fix! Check your brake lights. If any of them are out, it will make the cruise control not function. Turns out all 4 of the 3rd set of brake lights were out. We replaced the 4 of them and the cruise control immediately became functional again. I got this tip from a gentleman in the service department at a local Chevy dealer.

Rear brake lights not working on 1998 Chevy Lumina


Well usually when the third brake light works and the others don't, the problem is in the turn signal switch. The center brake light is separate from the other two as far as circuits go.
The thing that puzzles me is the cruise. It could be something else, because the only way a faulty brake light switch would kill the cruise control is if the switch was stuck on.
I think I would check the circuits in and out of the turn signal switch.

Cruise control and rear hatch doesn't work, also rear brake lights staying on when driving, would this be a stoplight switch failure?


yes. The CC uses the signal from the brake light switch to operate. Rear hatch? sounds unrelated unless you are referring to the 3rd brake light. Depending on your car there may be a rubber or plastic button the brake arm rests against when not being pressed. This may have broken or fallen off.

My cruise control doesnt work on my 2004 f150


Is the switch on the end of the brake master cylinder good? There has been a recall for these I think. Check all fuses? Make sure brake lights operate normally.
