my cruise control just stopped working about a week ago. I have read up and checked on pulling the brake pedal up with my foot while driving and checked the fuse.
the fuse was blown but when I replaced it the cruise still didn't work.
My brake lights come on when I press the pedal as well.
I have led bulbs in my taillights that have been in for a couple months and worked fine until last week
the last thing I haven't done is replaced the brake light switch, is there anything else im missing on trying before doing that ?

Pretty sure its the sensor. Took me forever to figure out why my cruise would randomly just stop working. Eventually I figured out the brake pedal was wiggling enough when it was cold to hit the sensor that wasn't stiff enough to ignore slight pedal jouncing. Replaced sensor - done.

It's also possible that you have a burnt out brake light bulb. Or if you put LED bulbs in there without a resistor.

I had the same issue before, my cruise control wouldn't engage after i put LED replacement brake light bulbs in. Replaced them with the originals, cruise worked fine again.

Something to do with if the brake lights aren't working, the cruise won't either.

So I finally replaced the brake light switch and it's still not working but I now also have led taillights , not just bulbs the whole taillights could that be my problem ? My cruise control worked when I had just led bulbs in the taillights before it quit

You could swap the old ones back in and find out if that is the problem
