Question about 1998 Chevrolet C1500

Curise control quit working, '98 C 1500 Suburban

Cruise control intermittently quit working, finally stopped working. I replaced the multifunction control arm on the steering column, but still doesn't work. Purchased a replacement brake switch, but can't even see how or where to get to it. No sophisticated computer trouble code diagnostic tool. Should I go have it diagnosed for trouble codes, or figure out how to replace brake switch? Probably smarter to have it diagnosed first.

First off CK your curise control throttle cable. You should start at the throttle body where the two cables connect to it. (throttle and cruise control cables) This is where I have found is the most common problem is located. Make sure the curise cable is connected and not broken or cut. I have found this to be a very common problem.
If you find them intact. Then its too easy from there. Just trace the cable back to the electric motor that works the cable and so forth. From my experiance your problem is mechanical not electrical.

2006 Dodge Grand Caravan All 3 brake lights don't work. Replaced burnt out high center bulb, checked fuse under hood, replaced Stop Light Switch.


Is there power to the stop light switch? You never say any electrical testing was done. Use a 12 volt test light to check this. You can buy one for about $5 from auto parts store.

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.

My curise control does not work


First thing would be to check the fuse. If the fuse is good, use a voltmeter and test the power to the cruise control with power on. If you have power, then test the cruise control unit with a vacuum pressure tester.

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.

Cruise control stopped working


I had a similar problem with my 99 Suburban. After not being able to solve the problem for about six months, my headlamps stopped working on the low beams. This led my mechanic to change the multi-function switch on the steering column (turn signal/cruise control switch/high beams) When he did this he discovered that the wire terminals at the switch had gotten hot enough to melt a little, this allowed the ground terminal to slip out of the connector. Once replaced, the cruise control miraculously started working again. I have had no problems with it for the last four years. The local GM dealer told me later that they had quite a few trucks with the same problem and it typically started with customers noticing that their cruise control stopped working. Give this a try!
