Question about 1999 Chevrolet Express
When I am driving my van for long distances and I turn on the running lights, the cruise control will not turn on. If they lights are off they cruise will turn on. How can this be fixed?

Chevys with cruise control won't work when light switch is turned on. That is normal. the
The NTSB(National Transportation Safety Board)doesnt reccomend using Cruise Control on any motor vehicle when driving in low light conditions, so Chevrolet designed most Cruise Control units to turn off when you turn your headlights on. To prove this for yourself, turn your Cruise Control on during the daytime, make sure Cruise is working andthen turn on your headlights. Your Cruise Control will immediately diengage. Now turn your headlights off and restart your Cruise Control. Your Cruise Control should work properly.If your vehicle is equipped with DRL(Daylight Running Lights), These lights will not affect your Cruise Control.My '98 Chevy Express Van works the same way. You can also verify this through your local Chevy dealer.
