My Dakota Digital Cruise Control is not working. Other than check for blown fuses which I have done, I have no idea where to go next. It may be the switch but I don't know how to check it. System is fairly new. Installed in 2016 and less than 1000 miles on it. When I move the switch to on and press the set button, nothing happens. Any ideas?

Cable or electric speedometer? Is speedometer working? Drive by wire or mechanical throttle? Is brake pedal returning all the way to the top? Stop light switch sticking? Good ground on control box? If throttle operated, is cable/chain connected to throttle?

Electric speedometer, mechanical throttle, brake pedal returns to the top, brake light switch is not sticking, chain attached. I can check the ground tomorrow.

I think I might have found the problem. My brake lights are out. Don't know when they went out or why yet but I'm pretty sure that's the problem. Could be the brake light switch itself or something in the taillight wiring. Will check further today.

Cruise control usually use a 4 terminal brake pedal switch. 2 terminals close to activate the brake lights and the other 2 open to deactivate the cruise. Is the switch under the floor or do you have swing pedals? Check form power to the switch.

Got it fixed. Don't know how long I've been driving around without brake lights...don't want to know! Anyway, the brake lights AND the cruise are working fine now. Thanks for the help.
