Hello, do you have your vin number available?

ok I'm making sure the recall wasn't active on your vehicle. On this vehicle disconnect the switch on the master cylinder and see if its leaking brake fluid. If there is fluid inside it then you have an issue with the switch and need to replace it. That is what causes the cruise control to fail on these vehicles?

I went to Advance Auto. Bought a new switch. Installed it. Still no luck.

was there brake fluid in it?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
No brake fluid in the plug in. When I unscrewed it is got fluid.

did you inspect the fuses inside the cruise control harness? They are right next to the switch?
