It should be under the dash near the top of the brake pedal arm. You can adjust it so the button on the switch releases when you push the brake pedal. They used to screw in and out to adjust.

Good luck.

Why won't cruise control engage?


Most cruise controls have a cut off switch high up on the brake pedal arm. This switch maybe out of adjustment, manual cars also have one on the clutch pedal.
Most times it is up next to the brake light switch near the pivot point of the brake pedal arm.

My back break lights isnt working and front head lights are they both connected


If both are not working, check your brake light fuse and then bulbs for burnt filaments. If ok, could be wiring or brake light switch located at the back of the brake pedal. To eliminate the switch, if your car is equipped with cruise control, try to engage it and if it works, the switch is good, if not, switch is bad as the cruise control needs a good working brake switch to engage the cruise.

2007 Avalanche cruise control doesn't work even though the steering wheel switch is lit. Fuse is not blown and backup camera works.


i just had the same problem, it started after having to get a "jump start" for a low battery. after checking the fuse(under the hood #43) I disconnected the battery for about 60 seconds to let the computers reset. works fine now. don't know the original cause of the low battery, or the fault but don't want to pay the dealer service charge for doing the same thing...hope this helps ..billy

Cruise does'nt work all the time have to pull back


the brake switch is what is used to disengage the cruise, so I would check to see if the brake pedal is slightly contacting the switch to keep the cruise disengaged..it is located just on the back side of the brake pedal arm up under the dash...it may be out of adjustment or maybe just plain defective

Ive replaced the brake lite switch twice on my 1996 grand chrokee -when the cruse control is on it will only engadge if i lift up on the brake pedel-but soon as the pegel drops it turns off the cruse...


the brake light switch is part of your cruise control circuit. check the adjustment. it should be threaded so that you can change the depth on it. probably not your switch at all.

Cruise control will not engage even though the indicator on the Cruise on/off switch is illuminated.


Check that your brake lights are staying off. Brake light switch will put your cruise control into coast mode.

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.

Cruise control inop


Could be a bad vacum dump switch on the brake pedal. There is 2 switches on the brake pedal one for brakes lights and one for cruise The cruise switch must be pushed when the pedal is up. Or your servo under the hood is bad To identify the parts go to the parts store and look at them and you will know what to look for
