Sounds like if the fuses are good then it could be a bad relay

Lower R/L brake lights and cruise control stop working at the same time


Well before you listen to all these people and do all kinds of crazy random replacements I'd suggest the very simple very easy solution of checking the fuse. If the fuse is bad it's a 3 dollar replacement. If that doesn't work I'd replace all the bulbs, more expensive but cheaper than the control switch. If that is bad it's also a fairly easy fix but a little more pricey.

I have code p0573 saying brake switch A is high although brake lights are working ok, can anyone help please


Possible causes
- Faulty Brake Switch
- Brake Switch harness is open or shorted
- Brake Switch circuit poor electrical connection
help.jpg What does this mean? When is the code detected?
The P0573 codes is set when the stop light switch signal is too high.
Possible symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Stop light inoperative
- Cruise control system inoperative
P0573 Description
When the brake pedal is depressed, the stop light switch sends a signal to the Engine Control Module (ECM). When the ECM receives this signal, it cancels the cruise control.

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.

My "brake" light turned on but my emergeny brake is not on and my cruise control stopped working at the same time. What does this mean?


Check your brake fluid level. Check brake lights. If the cruise sees any sign that you are trying to slow down. ie... any brake input. It will not allow you to set cruise.

Check the switch, located on the brake pedel the stop light switch and the cruise control switch are on the brake pedel towards firewall. The cruise control switch is plastic.

2004 Pontiac Montana Brake Lights, Pwr Window and Cruise all Quit


The same thing happened to my 2002 Montana minus the power window problem.

The brake lights and the cruise control are somehow tied in together.

I went to the scrapyard and ripped off a couple circuit boards from an old Lumina ($25 for the set) since there were no Montanas on site.

The problem seems to be when one brakelight goes the bulk of the current transfers to the other light and will blow it too.

Anyways you said you tried replacing the circuit boards and it did not work so sorry I could not be of more help.

Mechanics just fixed the brakes. After we left the shop the brake and abs lights were on (and are now on most of the time). Then the speedometer stopped working (most of the time). The engine icon came on...


have the abs sensors removed and cleaned alot of times during brake service dust and contaminations can cause a faulty reading it may also have the speed sensor at the wheels if so the problem is probably with dirty sensors that will also cause cruise not to work

1991 Maxima cruise control cuts out.


I had a problem with the interlock switch located on the brake pedal. There are too switches one for the brake lights and one dedicated to the cruise control. If either switch is acting up it will affect the cruise control. Then interlock switch is the same switch that is used on the clutch with cars that have a manual transmission. It has smaller electrical terminals in the connector than the brake light switch. You can jumper the connection and see if it solves the problem. You still have the other switch that will disengage the cruise control when you hit the brake. If that is the problem then that's the one you need to replace.
