Hi,

Let's see if we can get this problem sorted out.

First, how much repair/diagnosis do you want to do yourself?

Do you have a scan tool?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No tool

Want to know if it is something i can fix
Expert:  Jared D replied 1 year ago.

It might be. There is a common problem with the brake pedal switch coming out of adjustment and telling the cruise to deactivate all of the time. That could be the problem. Unless you want to just replace parts, you might need a scan tool to diagnose the system correctly.

Try this adjustment procedure first. It doesn't require any special tools and is fairly easy (aside from squeezing yourself under the dash).
