Cruise Control Crapped Out, help?!

I have an '08 F250 Auto diesel, and my cruise is totally gone, worked the other day, and nothing last night, no lights in the dash (for the cruise control, all other lights/gauges are fine). Any help on where to troubleshoot would be great! thanks!

There is a brake switch located on the bottom front of the master cylinder that is bad to go out. I had to replace mine. It's an easy fix and the part was about $45.

Do you have to drain the brake system to change it or is it a closed system
