1- the cruise control stopped working. Drove the vehicle several day without it working. 2- scheduled it into joe johnson Chevrolet Aug. 18th. Repair person reported to me that the brake lights were also not working. So I was driving the vehicle around for several days without brake lights ( very unsafe ). 3- the repair shop replaced stop lamp switch. 4- next day I spoke with my father who also has the same vehicle. I told him what had happened with my vehicle. He said his cruise control had not been working for a while. We check his brake lights and they are not working. 5- obviously this is a huge safety issue that needs to be investigated.
