Question about 1999 Audi A6

'99 A6Q Cruise Control Problem

OK, so I've read and read and read and read about the 99's cruise problems. One thing I'm not sure of though. My cruise definitely doesn't work. I checked the fuses and the slot where the fuse is supposed to be, there's nothing. :( I went out and bought new fuses but when I tried to place the fuse in the slot, there isn't anything in the slot to hold it. Could that be one reason why the cruise isn't working? I asked the previous owner if he ever had a problem with it and neither him nor his wife ever had to use it. Would it just be worth my time to take it into a dealer and have em try and fix it or does anything think this could be something a "medium mechanical savvy" person can fix?

    I have the same problem. Audi service and they fixed the cruise control for $320 total. Guess what happened? I t stopped working 2 day later. I will take it back to the service and learn what is going on. But I think just the cruise control on Audi A6 99 models were not very well engineered unlike other newer Audi models.

    My 1999 A6 cruise control stopped working about 2 years ago (7 years old, 75000 miles). It works occassionally. i thought it might be a fuse. I am going to have my brother in law (Audi mechanic) check it out and see if it is an easy fix.

Why does'nt the Cruise Control Activate 2007 Chrysler Pacifica


Hi Daniel, I'm glad to help! One of the most found problems with cruise control's inoperative here at the dealership is a vacuum problem. If you do not have vacuum from the engine to the cruise control under the hood, then even though the rest of the system is working fine it will not pull the accelerator pedal. NEXT: Another problem could be that the cruise control unit under the hood is not getting power from the brake switch. Check and see if there is power at the unit's connector under the hood. If there is no power then replace the brake switch. NEXT: The PCM may not be getting a signal to apply the cruise and this mainly happens because of a cruise switch problem OR the signal is not getting through the "Clock Spring". This could be either one causing this problem, so replace the switch first because its cheaper. If all of these things check out good then it could be the Cruise Control Unit itself. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Daniel.

Crusie control does not work on 2011 gmc sierra 1500 and I've already replaced the switch?


If the switch is replaced,then it can be wiring issue or faulty cruise control board.But as the switch is replaced,get the voltage at the switch tested to confirm the switch is actually receiving voltage.If no voltage received at switch power supply wire then ,apply external 12 volt power to the cruise control switch wire and then see if cruise control comes ON.If yes,then you know wiring is issue.

99 malibu always read inconsistant fuel levels but now engine light came on and stalled on the highway.Codes read lean fuel and misfire. Exhaust smells horrible she sputters when left idle and idles low...


check to make sure catylitic convertor is not plugged. if it is ok, then put a code scanner on to read codes, may have a bad 02 sensor. if you dont have a scanner, most auto parts places will scan vehicles for free.

My cruise control will suddenly stop working and the cruise light


I had a similar problem and it turned out to be the brake fluid level. This may be an answer. Also have you had the brakes checked. The cruise control is integrated with the brakes. Any little thing wrong with them effects the cruise.

i had this problem and fixed it. The switch on the brake pedal was slightly off adjustment and was detecting as though the brake was always on, disengaging the cruise control. I pulled it apart and put it back together and made sure it was working ok, now my cruise control is working ok.
