A bloke following me tonight told me I had no brake lights...

I checked when I got home and sure enough... no lights at all.

My parker tail lights are still working.

My globes are fine.

The fuse has not blown.

My cruise control is still working...

Any ideas?????

I'd do a search but it's not working and I'd love to get this fixed sooner rather than later...

Similar thing happened to me and it was a dodgy brake light switch. it's a switch attached to your brake pedal that activates the lights when it is pressed.

Check that.

Could that also effect the auto-cancelling of my cruise control?

Wash your mouth out!

An electrical tie is more than fixing it properly!
