99 sable cruise light flashes

A friend has a 99 sable ls. After the cruise is turned on, when the set/accel, resume or coast buttons are pushed the green cruise light just flashes and the cruise never engages. Happens at all speeds. Ideas?

Re: 99 sable cruise light flashes

Could be caused by a couple things.
- Vehicle speed sensor
- Brake lamp switch

Does the vehicle have a check engine light?
Have you tried looking at the ECU for a trouble code?

Re: 99 sable cruise light flashes

We replaced the brake lamp switch if it's the one attached to the brake pedal. No check engine light. Don't know what the vehicle speed sensor is. I believe each wheel has a speed sensor for the ABS. Is this something separate? Haven't checked ECU codes. Do we have to take it to a mechanic for that? Thanks.
