Turn Signals Shut Off Cruise Control

I'm pretty sure that isn't a 'feature' - I'm guessing crossed wires in the steering column. Just wondering if this might be a known issue?

Mine does the same thing every once and awhile. It's pretty random. Always wandered what caused it. Anyone else have an answer?

I had this problem but only when I had the trailer wiring connected. I had always assumed that I had improperly wired my connections. When the trailer wiring is not connected I don't have a problem.

Have same problem. Doesn't happens when I let the turn signal off easy, just when I let it down hard. Never looked into it but, can be a nuisance.

Check the third brake light bulb, then the rest of the brake lights. This is a common problem with these trucks. It is a good way to let you know that you have a bad brake light.

I had the same problem, along with many others on this forum.

haven't had a chance to check trailer wiring yet, nor brake lights. But I did open up the steering column today and tighten everything up. Seems to be shifting better (less play in shifter arm) - will test cruise tomorrow maybe.
