Ford Focus 2001 - Cruise Control Died

My cruise control just up and died on me while I was toodling down the freeway. All the fuses are good. Beyond checking connections under the hood and the dash, I’m at a loss.

Can anyone give me an idea on what I should be looking at so that I could possibly resolve this on my own?

Many thanks

Check to make sure all the brake lights work. If there’s a brake light out the cruise won’t operate. Also try placing your left foot under the brake pedal and pull up on the brake pedal. Now try engaging the cruise. If it engages, the brake light switch is either out of adjustment or defective.
