1995 BMW 740i Base 8 Cyl 4.00L

Steering & Suspension

what is wrong when I set my cruise control and after about 10miles its shut off?

i have 236,667 miles on my bmw, but the the motor is 3yrs old, after I set my cruise a few miles down the road it just shuts off, I thought it was the brake light switch and replaced it,but that wasn't the problem. The car came with 16'in wheels, but when I bought the car they were replaced with 18'in bmw rims. Could this have an effect on the cruise control?

The wheel size should not have an effect on the cruse control.. I would have guessed brake light switch as well so you're on the right track... Also consider that pressing the clutch will shut off the cruse (if you have a manual transmission) so you might need a neutral safety switch. Short of that you're probably looking at a cruise control replacement.
