    Before you go about replacing the switch I think it's best to check a few simple things first. Checking for power to the cruise control unit would be the first thing, then checking to see if the brake and clutch switch (if equipped) are within adjustment. If the cruise control thinks you have your foot on the brake or clutch, it won't work. If these things are okay, then you can check the switch to see if it's working. You may need a wiring diagram of the circuit to know what wires belong in the circuit and where they are located.

    check above the break pedal there is a plastic bracket that opens or closes a push switch that makes your cruise control kick out when you put on your breaks... do not pull your break pedal forward that will break it if it is not already broke if it is you will have to get it from a junk yard dealers no longer this carry part hope this helps..
