Just found out that the cruise control stopped working today on my 2001 chevy silverado 1500. I checked the cruise control fuse and its fine. I'm not sure if any other fuse could possibly be giving me an issue. Also if their is a wiring diagram that would help alot.
The first thing to do is check for codes. The cruise control system is PCM controlled, many codes that seem to have nothing to do with cruise will disable it.
If at first you don't succeed suc harder.

Took the old switch apart. Someone here said they fixed the problem by cleaning the contacts. That didn't help me. Inside the switch there is a rotating cam that activates the switch. When pressure is applied to the brake, it rotates. Mine had worn to the point it was not rotating enough to activate the contacts. New switch fixed it. Parts manager said this is a BIG problem and they keep LOTS of those switches on hand.
By the way, this DID NOT affect my tail lights or brake lights. The brake lights were working fine. Only affected the operation of my cruise control.
GMPartsDirect had it for $10. Easier for me to go 1 mile to the dealer and put it in myself.
