LED modifications WILL CAUSE cruise control problems.

your replacing a linear conductor with a semiconductor. They are different. An explanation with more detail than that requires some electrical engineering knowledge. I think I have something in my bag of tricks that may fix your problem though.

I know this is an old thread but it is a little similar. My cruise will shut off at random and not re activate until after I come back to the vehicle or sometimes not even then. I dot think I have loose connections or anything. I have looked over it and it looks ok. I just need some other things to look at or consider.

I finally fixed this. It was a combination of LED tail lights and the trailer tail light connection harness. For some reason the trailer connector allowed the cruise to partially work with the LED tail lights.
