Do you get power through the switch with it down, if not it will be faulty.

Check for power at the fuse, and then work back down the line looking for a fault.

There are 4 wires, 2 for the brake light circuit and 2 for the cruise control.

Unplugging the connector would not make the lights work. You need to bridge the Green/Red (hot at all times) and the Green/white wire.

The cruise control system wires would be hot only when the cruise control and ignition switch is turned on.
