I've read that in order to replace the druise control switch you have to disarm the airbag and such.... pretty time consuming and risky work...I think you can get it done professionally for about $200 or so...
The easiest fix to this problem is to just stick a dime in the space above the cruise control switch... you don't have to hold it down, and it costs 10 cents... works well!
you dont need to "disarm" the airbag, but it is a good idea to unplug the unit so you dont accidentally set it off, you have to remove the steering wheel and pull the steering colum covers off and there should be a couple of TORX bolts holding it in, then you just unplug the leads off the thing and reverse order to put new one in.

The Chrysler Sebring cruise control switch is located beneath the dashboard, on the drivers side. The cruise control switch should be labeled as such.
Start by removing the connections for the cruise control and brake lights, then remove the bolt that holds the switch to the brake pedal. Once the brake pedal is loose the switch is held on the brake pushrod by a bushing with nylon retaining washers. Carefully remove one washer and slide the bushing out, the switch can now be removed from the pushrod. Installation is the reverse; line up the hole on the switch with the hole on the pushrod, make sure the tabs for the cruise control and brake lights are facing properly. Reinstall the bushing and replace the other nylon washer, replace the bolt and tighten. Lastly connect the brake lights and cruise control.
This means that the switch is going bad. You will need to replace the switch that is on your steering wheel or on the turn signal switch.

Find out what's wrong, then repair it or replace it. There, that was simple. And the fact is, that's what ALL repairs are about. Cruise control problems are often quite simple, such as a faulty brake light switch or cruise control activation switch or even a poorly adjusted cruise control module. But you'll need to start looking at the individual components and find out which part isn't doing what it's SUPPOSED to be doing.
No. The Cruise Control is controlled by the engine ECM. If your cruise control isn't working, you probably either have a bad switch to actuate the cruise control, or a brake pedal switch which is in constant contact, and thus telling the computer it's engaged when it isn't.
The most probable cause for your malfunctioning cruise control is a blown fuse. The fuse might have blown while you were changing your switch. The cruise control fuse can be found in the fuse box.

You should be able to find the replacement part on Amazon for $15 or so. Good luck.
