Default Cruise control Button,Switch/Blinkers

Ok so im cruising down the hwy the other day and i want to set the cruise, well I push the button and the darn cruise light wont show and it wont set either cause the light doesnt show on the dash.......So i went a couple miles like 30, and changed speeds up and down, then tried the cruise again and it worked.

My ? is why does it do it sometimes but not all the time when i need it?

Also i dont know if these problems are related but, sometimes when i have my left turn signal on it sometimes starts blinking for the right side.

Why does it do that?

If i can fix it my self i would instead of waiting for the dealer to yank my chain around.

Thanks in Advance

I too have had the cruise control not work and then work a short while after. It is very intermitant...When you go to the dealer of course it works! I recall a thread with regards to a "switch" but I have searched and could not find it. This may be the culprite? Hopefully one of the other members can direct us to this switch ???

Check the ground wire connection (G201) near the park brake pedal. Should be about 10+ wires on it. A problem here could cause those issues....but I would expect more.
At least it's starting point that doesn't cost anything.
