Replace you brake light switch or check the connector under the dash right above the brake pedal.
You must remove the cover under the steering column (plastic panel) to access the switch. It rides right on the brake pedal arm and is a 2 inch long round switch that is black with 3 or 4 wires plugged in to it.
This should take care of both problems with the cruise and tail lights because the switch is the only common part that connects both. When you hit the brake, the cruise turns off. Hope this helps!!!

Let me know and I'll look it up.

Toyota diagram cruis control

The cruise control on modern Toyota vehicles is built into the ECU.
You may only need to install the stalk and the wire jumper that connects the stalk to the spiral cable, but some vehicles are missing the wire that runs from the spiral cable to the ECU. The parts are about $110.

I have a 1994 toyota 4 runner and it wont start, i took out the starter fuse and cross jump the fuse with a wire and it start but i have no brake lights heater dont work and i cant get the car out of park....

I think all of those circuits are controlled by the key switch.
I would start at the key switch and check the circuits for power.
You may need a shop manual to get all of the wiring diagrams you'll need.

2005 dodge stratus cruise does not work but light comes on.

first check to see if brake lights work, because brake light switch will deactivate cruis control when you press brake pedal to slow down stop.if brake light switch okay, dealership has to check out cruise control since pcm and vechicle speed sensor control the cruise control also.

Usually you can follow the hissing noise. Any noise inside the car? Near the brake pedal where the cruise cutoff vacuum switch is? If not, start at the throttle body. The main line runs from there to the vacuum storage canister. See diagram below.

I have problem with illumination non of the AC control / hazrd switch/heated seat switch/ cruis control switch/main light switch/. are bright please help

It may not be easy, but it sounds like a ground wire is corroided or loose. You will need a good shop manual to locate the grounds for that component. Sometimes the dealship will run you off a copy of the wiring diagram since your auto parts store more than likely won't carry that.
