I fixed my criuse problem on my '81 Challenger (Mitsubichi) many years ago (intermittant or non-functioning, especially in cold weather); don't know if the newer models could have similar problem. The vacuum solenoid (one of the 3 solenoids in the engine compartment) would receive momentary (ground) pulses from the control unit under the dash, but the ground wire from the solenoid to the controller was so long and lossy that the solenoid couldn't respond to the pulses. I added a little relay (reed type) right inside the solenoid cover that used the ground pulse to fire the relay, and let the relay supply a ground directly to the solenoid. It worked flawlessly. The relay would operate with as little as 6v pulse, so the losses didn't bother the relay.

SOURCE: My cruise control doesn't work??...any

jnjkingbird, It sounds like this problem is the clock spring as I don't believe that the horn and the cruise control would share a fuse. However, they do share a circuit in the clock-spring. You can check for power at each unit (horn and the cruise control) which would confirm this. Check each fuse as well. Good luck with this.

Cruise control not working


The adjustment of the brake light switch or it could be bad. the brake lights can work fine and the part of the switch that works the cruise doesn't The swiches that control it from the steering wheel can losse connection in a part called the clock spring. Vacume connections can effect the cruise but yours is likly cables less therefore doesn't work the cruize.

Horn doesn't work,abs light on dash stays on and also cruise control does not work either


Typical reason for no cruise and horn is a bad clock spring underneath the airbag. Typically you have an airbag light on as well and not an abs light
