Whats Up Everybody, I Have A 95 Sls Seville With A Cruise Control That Don't Work No More. Before It Completely Stop Working. It Would Engage But After I Hit The Breaks At High Speeds And Try To Re Engage The Cc, It Would Not Come Back On Or If I Turned It Off Manually It Would Not Turn Back On. But Now The Thing Won't Even Engage. Anybody Got Any Suggestions It Would Be Greatly Appreciated!!!! (the Cruise Control Is On The Stalk Not On The Steering Wheel)

Start by checking fuses. It possibly could be the switch also.

You don't have to capitalize the first letter in every word either, it makes it pretty hard to read.

Since they are all history, you do need to clear them. There should be an option that says Clear All Codes. I'm not familiar with the 95 model so I will let someone else chime in.

You know my 2000 SLS cruise just stopped working on a long highway trip. Stopped for a rest, pulled the fuse and it was fine so I cleaned the contacts. Removed the connector to the cruise module and replaced it and it worked fine again. Who knows maybee my Cadi thinks it's British?

Simplify my friends.

It is almost definitely the brake switch. If yours is like mine, there is one switch for the brake lights, and another below it that cancels the cruise control and the TCC. Try this, while driving down the road, pull back on the brake pedal with the top of your foot, then try and engage cruise, it might work. Even if that test fails, I would still stick your head under the dash and check out that switch, they slip into these ratcheting plastic things, and they don't hold the switch in position well at all.

Under the dash, the brake pedal arm hits it. You have to remove the black panel under the dashboard, but then just follow the pedal up and you will see them. They are plungers that extend when the pedal is pressed, and when the pedal is released it presses the switch.
