I had one that worked intermittently. The dealership (under warranty) replaced the electronic module and the wiring harness. It still did not work. After some guy at an intersection said "hey, your brake lights aren't working" I took it back in to the dealership, had them replace the brake light switch, and voila the cruise control worked.

Thanks for that - will try today
That is exactly why I am lopathed to takje it in - dont mind paying if they go staight to the fault and fix it - but they always seem to poke and hope, and thats with the might of the factory behind them. If you were out of warraty you know the bill would have been for the module the harness loads of time AND the brakelight switch!
