I could be wrong but I think there is confusion. Chattanooga Mark said, "My hand brake micro switch wasn't activating the brake lights today but it was disengaging the cruise." However, it would appear that VicVisionBulldog interprets this as referring to the cruise control idle cable switch. I think these two gentlemen are referring to DIFFERENT switches.It would make sense to me that rolling forward on the throttle would turn off the cruise but not activate the brake lights.
I'll have to try mine. I always cut it off by the button or tapping the brake.
