    Thank you for the help. Replaced the switch, no change. Further review show the third brake light works, but not the tail light brakes lights. Tail lights, back-ups work,but wait both filaments are charged when lights on. Correct good bulbs all around. Checked the socket and both brake and tail light rings are energized when lights on. I hope this gives a more complete picture.

Try checking the brake light switch located behind the brake pedal, it will be mounted in a metal bracket with a little button that contacts the pedal, make sure the button in being slightly pressed in while the pedal is at rest, if not you can bend the bracket back into place. if everything looks fine its more than likely a bad brake light switch giving you the problems.

Why do brake lights stay on while diving and cruise control doesn't work?


If the brake light switch connected to the brake pedal has failed, the brake lights are stuck on which fools the cruise control into disengaging.

2009 honda accord brake lights not working center brake light does work


First check the brake light fuse. If this is good check the brake switch located just above the brake pedal. When the brake is pressed the switch comes out and causes the brake lights to come on. If this is the problem the cruise control should not work because the cruise system thinks the break is pressed and this is one of the ways to disengage the cruise control.

Brake light switch on 2002 chevy siloverado


Cruise control deactivates once you press the brake pedal. The brake switch us an input to the cruise control module. So it is possible that your brake switch went bad keping the lights on and making the cruise control module think you are applying the brakes when in fact you are not. Replace the brake light switch and check operation.

Cruise dont work and 3 brake light dont work


Hello carrollrll,

Fix the third brake light and that should resolve the cruise control issue.

The cruise control circuit that deactivates the cruise is through the third brake light.
