Is your truck manual or auto? if manual check the clutch pedal switch. Have had that go out before causing cruise to not work.

the most common cause of cruise to not work is the cruise deactivation switch mounted on the master cylinder

A new break pressure switch should run you about 28 bucks. I replaced mine about 2 months ago.

Is that the red sensor on the front of the master cylinder??... I took the wires off of it today and checked for continuity and got nothing so Im thinking the switch is bad...
