Default Cruise Control does not work. PROBLEM FOUND

My cruise control is not working on my truck. How would I fix the problem. I checked the fuse and it was fine. What else could be the problem? My dad and I believe what ever the problem is also is causing the trailer brake controller problems. Any suggestions what so ever would be great.

Are your brakes lights working? A bad (or misadjusted) stoplight switch will cause the cruise control to not work.

GM fail; no truck engine should have less torque than horsepower. Oh wait......it's an SUV with a bed.

My brake lights are working. How would I adjust the stoplight switch or check it for proper placement? What else could cause the cruise not to function? I wonder how hard it would be to replace the brake switch? The switch atleast sounds like it could be the problem with the cruise and the trailer brake unit.

I don't think it's the brake switch if all of your brake lights are working. Did you check the 3rd brake light also? Any brake light out will cause the cruise not to work.

Also, check your fuse for it.

Please don't tell that to mine. I have one of the two bulbs out on the CHMSL, and my cruise is still working.

It's an Isuzu. Nothing is as it should be. :D

I don't know that the truck cares about the CHMSL, though. I'm with you, one of my bulbs in it is out and the cruise works fine....but I wonder if disconnecting the bulbs in the actual tail lenses would affect the cruise or if its only the failure of the brake switch that affects it.

With advancements in technology over the years, it wouldn't surprise me that they have this issue remedied finally. Used to be, even 1 bulb of a multiple bulb brake light fixture would affect the cruise control. They may have finally sophisticated things to ignore minor changes in voltage.

After reviewing the schematics, only the brake switch affects cruise control, not the lights themselves.

I took the truck to a mechanic today and he checked the brake switch and wiring and that problem was crossed off the list. The switch was adjusted correctly, all the wires were connected and all the fuses checked out. He informed me to have a GM computer check out the trucks computer to see if the trucks computer logged a problem. He also mentioned Chrysler had a recall that the clock spring needed replaced when the cruise and horn did not work which confuses me how they are connected. Any ideas at this time are being taken. I have all LED light bulb replacement, would that affect anything? I hooked the trailer up today and when I turned on the emergency flashers my 3rd brake light started flashing which I have never seen before. Thanks everyone so far for suggestions.
