I have seen a few things cause the cruise not to work in gm trucks. First thing see if it works with the headlights off, then turn them on and see if the cruise kicks out, if it does check brake light bulbe and grounds in the tail light housing. A few other things to check, see how touchy the brake light switch is, the brake pedal maybe actuating the brakie light switch on bumps and kicking the cruise off. Check the blinkers and hazards, these have had issues with the turn signal switch. Check the ground behind the battery, I believe it is g103.

Oh ya, check all fuses first!!!

So , here is what i did : Checked fuse -ok,pulled out rear tail-light assy and checked bulbs etc-ok . Went out for a drive checked cruise ---didn't work , tried a couple times --no go. My headlites are always on [running-lites] but turned the light switch on and tried again and WALA !! cruise worked , turned light switch off and cruise still worked and I hit breaks repeatedly to disengage and pushed button again and cruise worked .I HATE fixes like this , because I didn't really do anything ?? So , is it the switch itself in the steering stalk ??

Thanks again for your help

Thats terrible that you fixed it wink , becuase that just makes it that much harder to fix grin .

Sorry, I would still check the grounds, you said you turned the headlights on and it started working, when you did this did you hit the dimmer at all? If not I dont see the connection between turning the lights on and the cruise switch. I would check grounds more. If you did actuate the dimmer switch then it is possible that the combination switch is bad.

When I turned the lites on I hit the dimmer to put them on bright before I touched the cruise button .What other grounds are you suggesting ?

Thanks Again

So today I took to dealer who diagnosed the problem as the 'cruise module' is failing. The part is $683.95 , and labor is $56.00 to replace . I guess I'll be using the foot for the cruise from now on , holy cr_p I didn't think the whole cruise assembly would be more than a couple hundred . So there you go .

Why not pick one up from the local junk yard? I'm not a huge fan of buying used electronic parts but the cost savings would be huge!!

Actually , I went on-line and found a new one at a GM parts house for $355.65 , I'll check for used also to see how it compares . Thanks for the tip ....

    • Man, I can see cream cheese but peanut butter? I may have to give it a go sometime, maybe the bacon will off set the oddness?  
    • Sorry I missed that. The brown and blue wires are the Transmit TX and Receive Rx wires for connection via single cable to NMEA 0183 compatible devices. nmea 0183 is the protocol for compatible devices, computer, plotters, auto piolet, Radar, radio, etc. All of these devices including your GPS can be connected to a single cable. The brown and blue wires allows the sonar to communicate to other devices. Google nmea 0183 compatible devices for a raft of information on what this is. My brother, a charter Capitan out of Cortez FL. uses these devices on his boat for off shore fishing up to 100 miles off shore. Nice to have to talk to other Capitan's ship to shore, radar, GPS and  to get back home without running into sunken islands.  
    • Trump stumped on terrorist quiz as he can't identify the leaders of ISIS and al-Qaeda – but Carly Fiorina shows she knows her Nasrallah from her al-Julani Radio host Hugh Hewitt asked Trump and Fiorina the same questions about terrorist leaders in separate taped interviews on Thursday FIorina answered confidently and Trump seemed flummoxed, confusing 'Quds Forces' with 'Kurds forces'

    • I ask the same thing about the other 2 candidates, especially the one that is your favorite.   What do you care? I thought he was irrelevant anyway?  
    • Oh yeah.  I keep forgetting about all that modern computer stuff in cars.   So the computer would notice the tranny didn't shift all the way down as the car stopped?     There goes that theory.    And why only after a couple hours of driving?   Some sort of overheating of the transmission fluid?  cooler plugged in the flush process?    Here is a question for Carpmaster..... Is it different in the summer vrs winter?   Like you only have to drive 50 miles in summer and 200 in winter?   You guys that actually know can feel free to ignore my suggestions if you don't want to waste time answering.  
    • leech, it does sound like an odd concocktion.  but you gotta try it.  225 for 2 hrs, helps if u use thin bacon.

    • Sorry, I thought the model was listed on the title of my question.  Anyway, Garmin 53dv EchoMap.  This one has downview, but is chirpless.  Seems like nice unit, tough.  Just wondered about those 2 wires.  Thanks.
