Hi, Calvin when you fix your front brake light issue your cruise control will work fine so before diagnosing any brake light issue always check the bulb and fuse first for integrity a brake light staying on is usually caused by the front brake light switch, which is mechanical, not disengaging. On early models moving the throttle control housing closer to the front brake master cylinder is the main fix. On late models, the switch gets tweaked and needs to be realigned. A brake light that does not come on when the brake lever is applied can be caused by a faulty switch or no continuity in the wiring at the switch. The rear brake light switch is hydraulic and it is extremely rare to malfunction in a closed circuit condition causing the brake light to stay on. Usually, rear brake light switch issues are caused by no brake pedal free play or a sticky rear master cylinder piston. A brake light that does not come on when the rear brake pedal is depressed can be caused by a faulty switch, air contamination in the brake line, or no continuity in the wiring at the switch.

Hooked up LED lights front and rear turn signals with brake light. Brake lights and rear turn signals worked until I hooked up front turn signals. Now rear turn signals not working but brake light is

Usually when you install LEDs, because of the difference in the voltage draw, to work correctly you need to install a "load equalizer".

Do the rear turn signals light, but not flash?
If so, that's most likely the problem.

Underneath the center dash or seat there is the control module for the lights / speedo ensure that it did not come unplugged. Same problem happened to me on my 2004 Big Dog Pitbull which uses a very similiar module as your road king.

My back brake lights stay on my 2005 road king classic.

That will be either the front or rear switch sticking, first try unpluging the front brake light switch, with this disconected if the light stays on the problem is with the rear switch, locate the switch this will be close to the brake pedal normal spring opperated which can stick, check it is closing fully, you may also disconnect the switch and check the light goes out reconnect the front switch and check correct opperation, this would thenpoint the fault towards the rear switch

1999 Road King Brake lights will not come on

Sounds like you have a bad rear brake light switch, both front and rear brake lights work through this pressure switch.

Find the rear master cylinder and the metal brake line that comes out of it and goes under the bike towards the rear wheel. Follow this metal line until you come to a tee in the line. There is a pressure switch screwed into the line at the tee. Make sure the wires are plugged onto this switch. If they are and you still don't have a brake light, you may need a new pressure switch. Simply screw the old one out and the new in. Do not depress the rear brake pedal with the switch out.

Good Luck

Brake light don't work replaced all fuses, what do i do? 2005 Road King FLHR

If neither the front brake nor the rear brake will make the light come on, I would suspect the bulb if the fuses are not blown.
