Huh? How is cruise control dependant upon brake wear? I'm not saying it isn't, but I've never heard about it and can't imagine how that would work.
YES! The brake sensors know when the brakes are wearing and it will prevent the intelligent cruise control from engaging. That is what the dealer said. After the brakes were done, the cruise control worked just fine. The dealer didn't charge me for anything else and didn't tell me anything else was done, and an independent mechanic said it was plausible. ? ? ? The brakes are an integral part of the intelligent cruise control--it will slow you down and/or bring you to a stop as traffic requires.
