Try checking the small switch at the top of the brake pedal. There may be two one for brake lights and one for the cruise control. To ascertain what is what, pull one wire off and see if brake lights work. If not, then the other switch controls the cruise control disconnect and engage..I you have a DC test light check to see if power is on on both side of the switch with brake pedal up. If so, depress pedal and check power on the other side there should be none, if there is the switch is defective.

Look under the dash by the parking brake and try to see if any wires are being moved or chafed by the parking brake linkages. That is what I have found in the past.

It's stalling at lights because of no brake lights. Meaning the brake light switch and transmission power to shut off the overdrive is not working. Any time you touch the brake, overdrive is turned off because power to trans is stopped when brake lights come on. Both these operations are performed by the same switch under the dash and mounted so that when the brake pedal is depressed, the switch button comes out and turns on the brake lights in turn shutting down the overdrive. Adjust or replace that brake light switch and you're good to go.

How do I shut off my daytime running lights while idleing


Just press the parking brake down just a bit, enough so that the Brake light on the dash lights up. That should turn them off. Don't worry it doesnt engage the parking brake. I have been doing this for years with my Tahoe.

Yes, most likely a fault in the auto transmission, and the car has shut itself off to prevent further damage.

Shut off daytime running lights?


You can't disable them it's illegal. If you need to shut them off while the engine runs say at drive-in, apply the parking brake (this works on some but not all cars, and don't try driving with parking brake engaged just one click).
