I have a 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan. I just had new front brakes put on, replaced the front bumper and a lightbulb for the rear blinker. Now my cruise control doesn't work.


Au contrer . the brake pedal should be up all the way, or your sw that turns on brake lights also affects cruse....when your brake pedal is slightly pushed it disconnects the cruise. Did you bleed brakes properly?

2008 Kia Spectra cruise control light comes on but will not set


Most likely your cruise control module has failed. Check your brake lights. If you have no brake lights, the brake pedal switch has failed. If that part fails, your cruise will not work. If everything is working fine, it's probably your module. I would also check the fuses, then plug in a scanner to see if you have any trouble codes. Is the speedometer working? If not the speed sensor is bad and needs replacement it is on the transmission.

Brake lights stay on after brake pedal pushed


Check the brake light switch mounted to the brake pedal. Look to make sure the plunger is moving in and out fully

Cruise Control


Voltage from the brake light switch deactivates the cruise control . Have an assistant press on the brake pedal while you check that the brake lights are working properly. Brake lights that dont come on or dont shut off need to be fixed and go from there. Sorry if this doesnt answer you question but I thought i would give it a try.

My 2002 Ford Focus brake lights stay on in drive, cruise control doesnt work and the hatch button in car doesnt work. I noticed the middle rear brake light is also out.


If you brake lights stay on and the cruise control doesn't work then I would be looking at the brake light switch at the top of the brake pedal as if there is power passing through it then it cuts out the cruise control. The same as if you put your foot on the brake cuts out the cruise control. The hatch button will be another problem like a fuse or broken cable or failed latch solenoid. As to the rear middle brake light try checking the bulb first.

The cruise control switch will not engage or set when pushing set button, but the green cruise light is on on the dash.


Check your fuse panels both inside, and outside the vehicle, as well as the connections to the cruise control.

My Cruise Control Wont work, is there a special way to turn on the cruise, because the sign for cruise comes up but it doesnt cruise


First, your car must be in gear and driving approx more than 60 km an hour
Secondly, using the Cruise Stalk switch turn the Cruise on, the dash should now have a lit icon for cruise power (green).
Once you have the desired speed, gently press the button on the end of the cruise in to set your speed. Remove foot from throttle and confirm cruise is active. Another dash light should come on as well (orange)

Failing that, if it doesnt work the usual suspect like fuses and the brake pedal micro switch should be looked at...

Try pulling up the brake pedal with your foot,Sometimes your brake doesnt come back all the way,and the brake switch keeps the cruise from working.Also,check the fuse.If those answers dont help,It could be the swith itself is bad.Those can be bought at a parts store.

1991 Celica GTS Cruise Control Problem


You may have a faulty brake lamp switch at the brake pedal. If the brake lights come on (via a bad switch), the cruise will cut off.
