    Ok, I posted the other day about my dash brake light staying on, Well today I was pokin around a realized I don't have rear brake lights when I push the pedal down. Also my cruise control won't disengage?! I really don't want a ticket or a wreck. Its a 91 1500 w/ abs (at the rear):confused:

    sounds like the switch on the pedal is bad or loose. check the wires also. IIRC its to the right of the pedal at the top

    thanks I'll give that a try in the morning. Would a bad switch affect the cruise control also??

    the crusie shuts off when you step on the brake, i think they both use the same switch, so if the switch is bad then the cruise is not getting a signal to shut off.

    if they use a different switch, it might be the tab sticking out the touches them is bent or missing.
