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.

Cruise control won't switch on - light on dash switch not on - could it be a fuse? and how do I find it?

look in engine bay for cruis control actuator it will have a wired cable connecting to the accelerator throttle in the engine bay follow it back to find unit. Check for any electrical plugs that may be loose. Check also the brake Switch above the brake pedal as the cruise control should have a tap on to the wires if this switch. if the wires come loose the cruise control may shut down. Also follow the wires on the actuator see if any fuses connected to them.

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.

All rear lights dont work the way they should

Sounds like the previous owner patched a hot wire to the rear lights instead of fixing the problem.
Someone will need to get the factory wiring diagrams and start backtracking from the lights to the dash to find out what is wrong. You may need a shop manual to get the diagrams you will need. Most repair books do not go into wiring that deep for the DIY.

I have a 1999 5.9L Dodge Ram 1500 and I can not get any power to the cruise control and air bag. I have checked all the fuses in the fuse box in the engine compartment and the fuse box on the drivers side...

alot of time when you cant get power to cruise control the brake fluid is low enough that it wont let you switch on but i dont know if that matters for the airbag

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.

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.
