Sometimes when a person steps on the brake and then just slides their foot off, the peddle snaps up so quickly it hits the switch and moves it. When this happens, the switch may be right on the brink of going on. If it is acting up, put your foot under the peddle and pull up while you try the cruise again. If that helps, grab the switch and adjust it toward the peddle slightly. The switch is made to auto adjust after installation by pulling up the peddle until it hits the end of travel. There are no nuts to adjust.

Truck goes back into the dealer tomorrow as this issue is still ongoing. The break lights fire all by themselves. I have confirmed this both while moving and sitting idle. When sitting idle there is a noise which sounds like a relay or switch under the center console just ahead of the armrest. I can feel it engage and did-engage. You can clearly here it when idle. When I press the brake pedal the switch fires and the brake lights come on normally. the switch by the pedal and does not seem to be the issue as I can put my foot under the pedal to hold it up and the random firing of the switch still happens.


The brakes thankfully do not engage when this happens but the computer thinks they are as the lights come on and thus disengages my cruise or does not let me turn it on at all if the brake lights are already on.


I have even seen the brake light come on when parked and shut off and eve when the truck was up on the hoist getting work done.


Hopefully with this added info the dealer can finally fix this issue tomorrow.

Bad switch or pinched wire under the IP? I hope they take the time this time.

So on the fourth visit and with the replacement of the brake switch and a calibration my brake light issue seems to be resolved. I still need to test out the cruise control on the highway but I didn't have any erratic brake lights coming on after I picked it up. Hopefully this is the end of it!

Issue still not completely fixed. The new brake switch helped a lot but the issue remains. Truck goes back in on Monday to the dealer. Also have an open support case with GM Customer service as well! My guess is it is better cause the brake switch is brand new, as it ages it will get s worse like the old one.

On the way down cruise worked as expected. It was a great drive down, however on the way back I fought the whole way to try and keep cruise control engaged. I would get it set and it would be fine for a bit and then it would stop. The icon would still be lit on the dash but no longer green as if I hadn't set it or I touched the brake. It did this the whole way back, shutting itself off after no specific period. I even pulled off the highway to see if shutting the truck down and starting it again would have a reset effect but I had issue the whole way home. There were no other warnings lights or issues with the truck.

Has anyone encountered any issues with their cruise control?
I wonder if it is a transmission temperature issue?

Last part they installed had no effect. Issue is still there. They really have no clue! Next appointment has been scheduled for when I am out of town so the can take the truck for a couple days.

They thought they had it solved as they found a connection that had some play in it at the body control module. But that still did not fix the issue. The quest continues. Issue has persisted for a year and they have yet to even find the cause! First GM vehicle I have ever bought. Truck is great other than this brake light issue. So frustrating!

Well dropped my Canyon off at the dealer this past Thursday. Got an update from them today as the GM Engineers recommended they install a new BCM and guess what the problem still exists. Been driving a 2017 Silverado 1500 Crew cab in the meantime.

Wow...sorry to hear that the same problem from last summer is still a issue. I have seen some pretty odd-ball problems that took way more time to solve than a simple parts replacement. Those are the ones that make you earn your pay. Also, the dealer should get extra diagnostic time from gm for those odd ones. Who ever is working on it should know the schematic by heart and be looking for ANYTHING!

Well a day later and hell appears to have frozen over lol. My Dealer finally found the problem in my canyon. Apparently after the failed BCM swap they could still hear the brake relay firing so they traced the wire harness and found a connector that apparently is not on the schematic. The connector had a separated terminal which was shorting with the wire. They rebuilt the connector and the problem looks to finally be resolved! Hopefully this is really the end of this issue.
