Rear brake light not working

The rear brake light on my 2001 LT does not go on when I apply the rear brake, but works fine with the front brake. The rear brake pedal does not de-activate the cruise control, but the cruise seems to work fine otherwise. The hazard warning lights button on the left hand grip stays lit all the time - don't know if that may be related. Thoughts?

Sounds to me like you have a defective rear brake switch. It is mounted behind the right side foot plate where the lever is mounted. The 4 way light is normal.
