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 ....

    • Surface water temps in Ely are 69-71 on the lakes we visited.  I think that’s a really fast warm up though and the actual spawning depth temps are lower.  I haven’t seen any bass bedding activity and the 18-19 inch smallies I’ve been catching are all fat and egg laden.     They’re sitting deeper than usual this time of year too.  The walleyes are are still shallow.
    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
