    I have 2020 international that cruise control will not come on. I have taken it to the shop over 10 times and still the same issue. Before it would come on and never come back on. Now it won’t come on at all. What should I do?

    use the accelerator pedal..???

    seriously though, maybe it could be a bad brake light switch, bad clutch pedal switch (if not an automatic), could be a blown fuse or bad relay, so check the fuses, relays, check to see if your brakes lights stay on, make sure you clutch pedal is not hanging lower than normal (if you have a clutch pedal)

    i'm outta ideas on what else to check.

    There’s a way to bypass the ecm if I’m not mistaken.

    turn cruise on and off 3 times and keep it on on the 4 time.

    it should let you bypass the active braking and radar devices.

    search YouTube as well for ways to bypass the stupid sensors.

    If your truck is a manual tranny, make sure the clutch pedal isn't sagging. Also check to see if the brake pedal is sagging. Try this. With cruise control off, put your foor under the clutch pedal or the brake pedal. With your foot pull the clutch/brake pedal up. Try activating the cruise control.

    Press Firmly on the cruise button, apply pressure if needed. I had the same issue. Push hard on cruise button on steering wheel

    My automatic, you can't have the exhaust brake on, or cruise won't work. I am sure you have tried this, but other than what has been posted, that's all I can think of. Does the exhaust brake work correctly?
