I don't want to pay to talk. I thought if I paid I would get an answer within 0 minutes. So far I'm not liking this and they already charged my card without answering my question. Grrrrr!

I see the content and I responded @ 6;43 and your replay was @ 10:24 am

so if you hold the cruise control set button will it work?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No
Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

ok can you please step on the brake pedal and tell me if the brakes likes are working .

also when you press the cruise main switch the switch lights up.

and when you actual set the cruise does it show the cruise light on the cluster before it goes out ?

Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

we have a well known issue with these brake light switches and will cause the cruise to not be set and work correctly

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Brake lights work
Yes both lights are working for cruise main on and when you try to set just doesn't hold speed continues to drop
yes shows on cluster before it goes out
I bought yesterday the brake light switch but don't know how or where it is to install?
Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

ok

if you look above the brake pedal the brake light switch is mounted on the bracket and simply switch out and then back in.

I set these so the plunger on the switch is pushed in on the rubber stopper.

Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

do you have a scanner that will read body codes ?

want to see if their is any stored codes.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Nope I dint have a scanner for codes. :(
I looked under the dash and can see the switch will i need tools to replace or can this be done all by hand? And will I have to remove bottom dash cover because it looks as its attainable from under the cover? Trying to make as simple as possible as I am new to area and have no tools yet.
Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

the switch can be changed by hand just unplug the switch and then twist the switch out and reverse instillation

you can drop the lower cover down to make it easier it just pops off and the back section has 2 guide pins you will see once you drop it down

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok thanks
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
That didn't change anything everything's the same I replace the plug or the switch I mean and still is the same
Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

ok the system needs to be scanned to see if their is any codes stored.

something just doesn't add up on the switch part so this is why the system needs to be scanned.

we could be chasing a failing cruise control set switch or something internal in the system

Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

we seen the set switch on the steering wheels fail and holding the set button and not letting it go normally holds and we replace the switch assembly.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Okay so can I go to Autozone or someplace like that to scan it?
Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

unfortunately you will need a shop that has this scanner or the dealer

unless they have a advanced scanner that does body codes.

you will have to call and check with them

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
okay thanks
Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

ok
