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!!

    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
