Could be. I usually wait a few extra seconds between mashing buttons to give it time to work, if that makes sense.

For the AIC to turn on several things need to happen:
E-brake set
Trans in park (for auto) or neutral (for stick)
No input on any of the pedals

Then the AIC will turn on. I didn't like the idea of having to set the e-brake every time I wanted to use it (and the OEM switch was being flaky in my truck as well) so I wired in a toggle switch to ground out the signal for the e-brake when I want to use my AIC. Easy sleazy to do, only took a few minutes and a little bit of wire. If you don't have it already, here is a link for the AIC operation manual.
