2005 Chev Impala Cruise control stopped working

The car runs fine except the cruise control doesn't engage or work. Is this a module I can replace or something more involved? If it is a module, where can I get the part number and about how much should it cost?

    I have a 2006 Impala, It quit working in sept 2008,I checked the fuse,but i think its ok. It wont work at all.  Thanks, jim

    I have a 2005. My cruise only works if it is turned off before I start the car, then only if I turn it off everytime I hit the brake to disengage it; if I leave it turned on for more than a few minutes, it won't work. I have to stop, kill the car, turn it off, then restart the car. I figure it must be a defctive module, wherever it is; I have only owned the car for a couple of months.

SOURCE: Cruise control stopped working

if the fuses are ok then i would say that there is a distruption between the cruise module vehicle speed sensor and the computer(ECM). unfortunately this is something only a qualified tech with diagnostic equipment can correct. i'm sure there are stored fault codes that the tech needs to check and reset. it's been my experience that oftyen times when this problem happens it has to do with the transmission control module which dictates how the engine and the transmission sync up to shift properly and your speed is measured through the transmission circuit thus the cruise control circuit is slaved to that.anymore questions feel free to contact me . just click my user tab on this site

SOURCE: 2004 acura Tl cruise control wont engage

This is a problem you will to take to a shop, If you are mechanically inclined I can help you, but if not I would not mess with it, it could be the button or it could be the controller and could even just be a fuse, check the fuse and if you don't find the fuse blown then let me know if you have a volt meter and what to test this yourself. You are going to be working around the air bag too and if you probe the wrong wire while testing you could break your arm or leg by deploying the air bag by accident. Or your neck.

2005 Impala cruise won't hold speed. The cruise seems to work kind of.


Check the linkage at the advance to se if it is broken. Some are by mechanical connection and others are by vacuum. If vacuum you have developed a leak and must replace the controler to make it work again.

Cruise control not working in my 2009 Silverado. It went out gradually over the past several months, pretty much worked intermittantly.


cruise control module has failed. or if your brake lights are staying on, then brake light switch has failed and not allowing cruise to engage. Have someone stand behind truck and see if brakes are working properly, if not- replace brake light switch. if fine, then swap out cruise control module under hood.... prob find one at a junk yard.

2005 Chrysler town&country cruise control stopped working


Does the cruise control lights come on when you select it? If it doesn't then you may want to check the fuse(s) that give the system power. If the fuse is blown then try replacing it. If it blows again when you try to use the cruise control then the unit it self may be bad and need replacing. You can find the fuse box location and the right fuse for it in the owners manual of the car.

How to fix cruise control


Cruise controls can cease to engage if the clutch or brake light cruise switch are out of adjustment. If this happens, try placing you foot under the clutch pedal (if equipped) and lift up on it (toward you) and hold it while engaging the cruise. If it now works, it will likely cut out when you remove your foot from under the pedal. Check the brake pedal in an identical fashion. Adjusting the switch at the pedals can often solve he problem. Some vehicles (Honda, Acura, Ford, to name a few) have a plastic insert that mounts in the pedal arm which presses against the switch. These can become brittle and fracture into pieces. My Acura has little pieces of blue plastic on the floorboard around the brake pedal one afternoon and I noticed the cruise didn't work. It was the pieces of the insert that had come to pieces preventing the cruise from coming on. I replaced the insert and no more problem with the cruise.

Cruise control not engaging


Hi there,

As you have not stated the Model of Chev, nor the Year of Manufacture, I will give you some general possibilities:

* Blown fuse
* Short or open in Cruise Control circuit
* Faulty brake switch
* Leaking vaccuum circuit
* Faulty cruise control switch
* Faulty stepper motor
* Faulty transducer
* Faulty speed sensor
* Faulty cruise control module

As with all electrical circuits, you should first check the FUSE.

However, from experience, the most common cause of inoperative Cruise control are:

Brake pedal switch: check that tail lights illuminate when depressing the brake pedal. If not, then replace the brake pedal switch (located up on the brake pedal assembly).

Brake pressure switch: depending on which model Chev you have, there is an electrical switch (look for wires) screwed into the brake cylinder (attached to the brake booster). This switch is a cruise system backup from the pedal switch and measures brake fluid pressure, to disengage the cruise control. When this switch fails, the Cruise Control will not engage. If you have a multimetre, you can test the resistance on the switch terminals (ask Chev for the correct resistance spec) - if not to specification, then replace the switch.

Cruise control release valve: this is the alternative to the brake pressure switch and is also mounted on the brake pedal, above the brake switch. This switch is designed to disengage the cruise control, just like the pressure switch. If you have a multimetre, you can test the spec of this switch (ask Chev for the correct test procedure & specs) - if not to specification, then replace the switch.


NOTE: depending on the year of your vehicle, your local Chev Dealership will be able extract the Cruise Control fault codes, stored in the Cruise Control Computer. This is always the fastest (and cheapest) way to identify the suspected component and will eliminate unnecessary "trial and error" labor costs. This test cannot be done by your typical garage and must be entrusted to your Chev approved service agent only, who will have the correct Scan Tool.

I have a 2005 Chevy Impala 3.4L. The cruise control quit working. The cruise control light on the dash will come on, but it will now engage. I have checked all the fuses. What would cause this?


It could be the cruise control unit (module) itself as these do burn out. A malfunctioning BCM (body control module) could also cause this. You should also check to find out if your 05 Impala has a recall as there are some defective models.

Cruise control indicater lights are on but will not engage


Check the cruise control module connector, see if it looks good and there is power to the module over one of the white wires in the 10 pin connector.
There are two white wires going to the module which is located at pins "G" and "J". There should be no voltage at pin "G" until the brake switch is applied. This switch is also used to operate the brake lights. The two wire colors on this switch are white and orange. At pin "J", this signal goes to the PCM to tell it that the cruise control module is engaged. Here is the info on the cruise control connector:

Pin A: gray - cruise control on switch signal: 12VDC with cruise switch on
Pin B: dark blue - cruise control set/coast switch signal: 12VDC with switch pressed
Pin C: gray/black - cruise control resume/accel switch signal: 12VDC with switch pressed
Pin D: brown - cruise control release signal: 12VDC with brake pedal not pressed: 0V when pressed
Pin E: black/white - ground
Pin F: brown - ignition 3 voltage: 12VDC with ignition on
Pin G: white - stop lamp switch signal: 0V with brake pedal not pressed: 12VDC when pressed
Pin H: dark green - cruise control inhibit signal: 0V if PCM detects an inhibit condition
Pin J: white - cruise control engaged signal: voltage (unsure of value, either 12VDC or 5VDC) when signal engaged
Pin K: dark green - vehicle speed signal: 1 to 5 volts depending on speed

This view of connector is facing it after it is separated.

Trying to post the connector view, the lines may not quite line up, but at least it should show you the pin positions.
