Question about 1995 Honda Accord

1995 Accord Intermittent Cruise Control

Immediately after Dealer, Nalley Honda, put new battery in the car, I drove on the expressway and set the Cruise Control for 55 mph. It ran 2 minutes then started slowing down. I tried to set it again but failed. Sometimes I turn it on and it works for the duration of the trip. That is happening less often. The Cruise Control Indicator always lights on the Indicator Panel when I toggle the Cruise Control switch ON at the dashboard whether it works or not. The SpeedO and Tach are operating perfectly. Could the problem have been caused by the loss of programing when the battery was swapped ? Hint: I also noticed now I get 25 miles per gallon (MPG) where I used to get 33 MPG before the incident. What other reason could there be for this problem ? I got a Speed Warning Ticket that I would not have gotten as I use the Cruise Control religiously when it is working.

In response to the request from "emissionwiz" for more clarification of the problem:
This same 1995 Honda Accord was stolen in Atlanta, GA in 2006 and trashed. It was recovered the next day and held 4 days before I got postcard in mail to come pick it up. The battery was dead and the gas tank empty and lots of damage. The insurance made it right including putting a new battery. Two years later, a month before the replacement battery warranty ran out, the battery went dead. The dealer, Nalley Honda replaced the dead battery to satisfy the battery warranty free of charge. Never having had Cruise Control problems before, the Cruise Control failed within minutes after leaving the dealer, Nalley Honda. The Cruise Control only works to maintain speed approximately 20% of the time after the battery swap. What could have been damaged and caused the Cruise Control to fail intermittently ? I can not just ignore this problem because I need the Cruise Control. The digital multimeter I use might be of some help locating the trouble. Maybe you could point me in the right direction so I can hem this in. I read specifications if a wiring diagram is available. As stated before, all indications from the instrument panel tell me the Cruise Control is ON.

    Acording to the owners manual, USING THE CRUISE CONTROL1. Push in the Cruise Control Master Switch to the left of the steering column. The indicator in the switch will light. 2. Accelerate to the desired cruising speed above 25 mph (49 km/h). 3. Press and hold the SET/decel button on the steering wheel until the CRUISE CONTROL light next to the speedometer comes on. This shows the system is now activated. CANCELLING THE CRUISE CONTROL When you tap the brake or clutch pedal, or press the SET and RESUME buttons at the same time, the CRUISE CONTROL light on the instrument panel will go out and the car will begin to slow down. If you cancel cruise control by pressing the SET and RESUME buttons at the same time, the previously-set cruising speed is erased. To use the cruise control, accelerate to the desired cruising speed and press the SET/decel button. Pressing the Cruise Control Master Switch turns the system completely off and erases the previous cruising speed from memory. To use the system again, refer to USING THE CRUISE CONTROL.

    The Velocity Speed Sensor or VSS signal may be faulty but how do I check the signal, with a meter?
    Could the VSS be making the CRUISE CONTROL light next to the speedometer come on when I have not pressed the SET/decel button on the steering wheel after pushing in the Cruise Control Master Switch to the left of the steering column?

Cruise control not working

The main cause for this problem is failure to maintain a set speed. Check the cruise control fuse. If the cruise control system fails to maintain the set speed, check the throttle linkage adjustment. Use your manual for this. Honda Accords parts would help you to buy other Honda Accord parts in good price.

97 honda accord v6 luxury cruise control not working

Yes, it probably is the brake switch. It must be working properly for the cruise control to work. If the part you got did not come from a car with cruise control, it will only have two electrical posts and not the four that you need.
If it is the right part, it must be turned in until the button is pushed completely, but not so far that it begins to actuate the master cylinder. Please report your results.
