Hello Chuck and thank you for your question,

Are you breaks lights working now?

What year , make and model are you working on please?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Brake lights are working 06 Buick LaCrosse My 3rd brake light remains after market though.
Expert:  Ron replied 9 months ago.

As long as the breaks light are working there should be no issue with the cruise. If the cruise is not working then you have to have something else causing it. Are you able to do some testing if I send you the steps.

Possibly

Any time the cruise dose not work the system should set and store a fault codes . Are you able to scan the system and and retrieve the fault codes?
