    First the door lock on the left side would not lock; now it will not lock or unlock. The right side locks work after two of three pushes. The fobs quit working YEARS ago, and replacing the batteries did nothing to help the situation. Fortunately, I can still unlock the door on the driver's side with the key, and lock the doors the old-fashioned way-by pushing down all the door locks.

    intermittently brake lights (stop lamps) do not function correctly; go on while driving without putting foot on brake; cruise either doesn't work, or when working, goes off without pushing any buttons.

    This has happened 2 pervious times and again just recently. before, I replaced the switch and the battery. worked fine after that. My brake lights would come on and go off when brake pedal was applied. Cruse control would not work either or word turn off while in use. Looked on line too see if there was a recall and on was put out march 2014.hope to get it fixed today.
