Cruise control on/off switch

I have the car listed above it has the 3800 V-6 engine with 63,800 miles. The steering wheel has the radio functions on it and the cruise on/off switch is also on the steering wheel (bottom left).

When I push the button to turn on the cruise it will only blink. When I press the same button and the set button at the same time I can see next to the speedometer it lights up the cruise light. Once I release, the small LED on the on/off switch goes out and so does the one next to the speedometer. Not sure if there is a short in the steering wheel of if I need to look under the hood at the cruise control module. Either way I still do not know how to fix it.

Any help is appreciated.

It sounds like you have a problem with the brake light switch. Can I ask if the brake light work? Here is a cruise control wiring diagram which can help you check the connections:

It could be the clock spring as well.

Check out the diagrams (below). Please let us know what you find. We are interested to see what it is.

I just had this problem and the dealer charge me $340.00 to replace the clock spring. But at least it is working. :/
