Ok gotcha, yeah mine is brand new.

Is the switch new of the fuse? If the pigtail fuse is burnt out, could have burnt out from the old switch. Could even temporally remove the recall pigtail. Just trying to think of everything.

Mine still had the original switch in it, since it was so cheap I decided to replace it since it was so cheap when I found out my cruise wasn't working.

Well I got a chance to look at this today. I checked the pigtail fuses today, never even noticed they were there lol. I new the pigtail was there but never even realized those were fused links. Well sure enough, the one 2 amp fuse is blown. Decided to check the wires running to the switch connector, had power on one wire but not the other. Unfortunately don't have any 2 amp fuses, but temporarily tried a 5 amp fuse just to see if I had power to both wires. Well yep, both are good to go. Checked wiring on the steering column as well just to be safe, all seemed to be good. Didn't get to take it for a test spin to see if it works, but I'm pretty sure that was the problem. Thanks dmd for the tip about the fuses. I've done head gaskets on this thing yet never knew about something as simple as those fuses for the pigtail .

I have cruise again! Thanks again dmd. Now I don't have to worry about my knee feeling like it's broken after my 11 hour drive down to the Outer Banks next month.

Fuse blew when the old switch shorted out, good that you replaced it. Could have
burnt the truck down without the fuses.

Now get the proper fuse back in there.

Glad to help!!
