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

The ones in the rear tail light areas, and the one by the battery.

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 ....

    • I would say your results speak for themselves, we often do things that don't make sense or trade short term gain for long term trouble. Nature does things for a reason that we often don't understand, why try to fix what isn't broken?
    • Two charter boats. (11 people) Fishing was very slow last Sunday afternoon (8), but we did really well on Monday morning (43). Due to bad luck drawing cards, neither Mrs Duff or I touched a rod on Sunday. She went 5 for 5 on Monday. That's fishing for ya though. And true fishermen understand that.   Some real nice fish this year, good luck to those that make it out there.      
    • And no, it does not have some sort of virus. They are calling it a phishing site and it is not. It competes with Google adsense so it make sense for Google to be sloppy in their algorithm.
    • Great storytelling with pictures on a portion of your life experiences in the  great outdoors.  Thanks for sharing Len.  
    • Len - This was a very nice article.  I enjoyed your writing style.  Take care.
    • I am going to pick up a box to pattern against what I am shooting now. Here is my question. They are available in both 1 3/4 oz. shot and 1 7/8 oz. shot in 12 gauge. In a 3" 12 gauge #5 shot shell, that comes out to a 21 pellet difference. The velocity for 1 3/4 is 1200 fps, for 1 7/8 is 1080. At 20 yards it would make very little difference, but say at 45 yards would you rather have the extra 21 pellets or the added velocity? I suppose the answer is to buy both and pattern them, but I am curious as to the thoughts of the folks on this board. Thanks
    • I was looking to get an otter XT pro cabin this winter, I was wondering of anyone on here has an otter in the pro platform and how they like the extra insulated walls. Does it seem bulky? Too warm on above 0 days? I wouldn't mind just the normal cabin but they only offer it with a bench it seems but having the extra insulation may be nice to have for those cold days here and there. 
    • Thank You for the very interesting and enjoyable morning read
