john b , Defective speed sensor, bad cruise switch/wire connection, bad brake light switch,etc can cause cruise not to work properly. If engine light on, record the code to help diagnose the issue. You may have to find a good Tech. to diagnose and estimate repair. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

I have a 2012 Dodge Charger. The cruise control on off button sticks or doesn't make contact to turn on. I have found that if you whack the steering wheel hard on the back side of the module a few times it will most likely start working again. I know this isn't ideal and the module needs replaced but it does work until you can replace it.

Is the Check Engine light on? Alot of newer cars will disable the cruise control when the check engine light is on .

I have a 2014 T&C. I made a fist and smacked the side of the steering wheel (where the cruise control cluster of buttons is mounted) firmly 2x. I did not hit the buttons themselves or their housing directly. Result? Cruise icon lights up in the dash and cruise function works!
