Cruise control won't work if the brake lights are on....it thinks you have tapped the brakes and disengages. This is probably due to a faulty brake light switch. Many gm vehicles have a recall for the ignition switch for a couple of different reasons. I would check on that before paying for a new switch which should solve you sticking key issue as well. You could try putting a small amount of graphite in it. Do not use any liquid or spray lube as the will gum up the tumblers in the lock. Graphite only!

The crusie control not working would be caused by brake lights being on same as for the key not coming out . You need to test the brake pedal position sensor . The brake pedal position sensor is under the dash hooked to the brake pedal arm . You need a wiring diagram to tell which wires are what . The pedal position sensor isn't like brake light switch from years past , it's an input for the BCM - body control module .There is three wires at the switch , 5 volt ref. , ground and signal . All go to theBCM . You could have a sensor problem , problem with the BCM . There could be DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the BCM .
The brake pedal position sensor is used to sense the action of the driver application of the brake pedal. The body control module (BCM) provides a 5-volt reference voltage and low reference to the brake pedal position sensor. The position sensor provides an analog voltage signal back to the BCM that will increase as the brake pedal is applied. When the brake pedal is applied, the BCM will then apply battery voltage to the left and right stop/turn signal lamp supply voltage circuits and the center high mounted stop lamp (CHMSL) supply voltage circuit illuminating the stop lamps. At the same time the BCM applies battery voltage through the signal circuit to the transmission control module (TCM) and the engine control module (ECM) indicating that the brakes are applied.

Your best bet would bet to take it to qualified repair shop

How can I get the interior lights on a 2010 Cadillac DTS to turn off


I assume you mean you want to disable the interior lights - short of pulling the right fuse, you can't. If you mean you can't get them to turn off, there are a few things that turn them on, such as one of the four door switches or the unlock button on your remote. If one of the switches is defective (grounding) the lights may never go off.

Why does my ABS light stays on and sometimes i get a vibration in the brake petal causing my 2002 Cadillac escalade not wanting to stop?


Sounds like a fault with the Antilock Braking System. The vibration in the pedal is the ABS working. With your foot on the brake pedal, it releases and re-applies the brakes to stop a skid from the wheels locking up. You need professional service for brakes.

Seems to be a known issue on all Cadillac and requires the ABS module to be replaced.

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.

Brake lights don't work on my 2003 Deville DTS . The third brake light does not work either .


First check your owners manual for fuse box location and check for any blown fuses. Next check the brake peddle under the dash for a switch, which is mounted to the peddle arm and turns on the lights when the peddle is pressed in. If the switch has worked loose and is not being pushed when you are pressing the peddle the lights will not come on. Hope this helps Fix Ya up.

I have a 1989 cadillac seville and all of a sudden , the cruse control stop working and when I'm tring to start the car the information center says, wait 3 minutes , then I can start it.


the cruse and the wait to start are most likely not related, the systems are not in common and use to completely different control systems.

lets start with the cruse, what we see fail the most is the cruse switch in the steering collum and this is easy to check if you have access to a automotive scanner, all you need to do is run a switch test with the scan tool, if you don't have a scanner then it would be in your best interest to take this problem to a shop.

the wait to start, is because the pass key system in the car did not recognize the key when you stuck it in the key lock cylinder, this could be just a worn key, or it most likely is a worn key lock cylinder, we replace many of them each year so i think i would try a new key first if the paoblem persists then replace the key cylinder.
