You might have a bad brake light switch located at the top of the brake pedal, there's also a cruise control switch mounted next to the brake light switch.

Crusie control doesn't work


The brake light switch (which also controls the cruise control) was not adjusted correctly. Also the stop pad may need to be replaced and the part is available or a penny can be taped or glued in place for a temporary fix.

I have a 1998 chevy c1500 and all three of my brake lights stay on and i have already replaced the switch with a new one


Most brake light switches have a small nib or piston/pushrod which is depressed by the pedal when the pedal returns. Many pedals are fitted with a metal plate and sometimes a plastic bung, which connects with the brake switch's pushrod. If this pushrod isn't being pushed in when the pedal returns, then the brakes are going to stay on. Check this operation carefully and please report.

Does brake light switch affect cruise control?


Yes. The brake light switch has to be in good condition because it is one way to disable the cruise when driving.

you have an e-brake switch shorted to ground the only light that goes on is the brake light on the dash when you engage the e-brake. check for fryed wires near the e-brake pedel and lever assy.

Have a 1998 Chevy 1500. Brakes work but not well


If it's really hard and you cannot hear the booster making noise or it make alot of noise then I'd suggest getting a booster. Also MOST of the time the reason the booster goes bad is because of the master cylinder leaking fluid into the booster. If you take the master off and look into the booster and see fluid then replace both. If it has no fluid in it and the master looks good, then most likly the booster is the only problem!
