Having the same problem myself, don't know if it is wiring problem or not. Cleaned the battery terminals; seemed to help temporarily but may be alternator problem. The truck has an oil leak and I'm wondering if that may be affecting the belt. I love the truck but it sucks at night when the the headlights dim. Will let you know if I figure it out.

Had the same problem with battery and brake light coming on, every couple of months. When it would come on, that would let me know that the next time I tried to start the truck, I would need a jump. Changed battery, alternator, coil, ignition module, fuses, fuse relays, replaced alternator plug, still did not fix the problem. I finally took it to an auto electrical shop and $400 later for that visit. It turned out according to them, and so far they are correct, was just a matter of wrong size battery frying out the alternator.

Brake light and battery light coming on mean the Alternator may have died on you. Check the alternator, it may be bad. The popping out of cruise may have happened because it did not have enough current flow, due to alternator failure.

Sounds like you have some significant carburetor or fuel line problems. I wouldn't drive this thing at all if you smell gas inside the car. Gas fumes are more explosive than gasoline itself. One small electrical spark and at best, you'll explode and die. At worst, you may end up with burns all over your body and spend the rest of your life in terrible pain.

If it seems to run well otherwise, you might have a partially obstructed catalytic convertor. Usually if this is the problem, the engine will also bog down even if you try to rev it up when it is in neutral.
