Default Cruise Problems HELP

Hello Guys and Gals,

I have a 2011 Chevy Silverado that the cruise control lights up (amber light) but does not show up on the control cluster (speedo). I can push the button to see it turning on and off but the dam thing will not engage and set the speeds etc.

Does anyone know how to fix this? or what potential part this maybe?

Thanks !!!!!

Cruise control problems

I just purchased a brake light switch on Rock auto for $8.45 plus $2.60 for shipping! Be here in 2 days, for $11.05! Not bad
Thought it was the multifunction switch on the steering column. Purchased for $30.08 and it was a GM part! But wasn't the problem. So going this rout! Thanks for all the information guys

Default Brake Switch

thanks! Read the thread and replace brake switch. $25 part and fixed in parking lot of OReileys auto parts. Took about 15-20 min. Removing metal clip was hardest part of process. Similar issue as everyone described. Light on steering wheel came on and brakes like work but cruise control didnít engage.
