    F250 7.3L 2000 model

    Today I traveled about 100miles with cruise working fine...on way home it would not work at all. Got home and checked all fuses etc. OK . But I found a small (1/2 inch long round metal rod about th thickness of the lead in a #2 pencil with a rubber tip) on the floor board under the drivers side.!!

    I think that is my problem; however, I don't know where it came from....



    Any ideas? You might want to see if you find anything on the floorboard...however, mine completely quit working. All help appreciated.

Can't retrieve codes through dash an cruise control. Also cruise set resume switch does not seem to work.


It seems the pcm is detected a fault with the engine. Even if the problem goes away , the vehicle will have to go three drive cycles without engine faults before the cruise control use will be allowed by pcm.

Intermittent Cruise Control Issue - cuts out when small bump in road is hit and may or may not re-engage after that.


Check the wire connector that plugs into the cruise control under the hood. Sounds like a loose connection. Remove the and reinsert the wire connector several times to make a better connection. Stepping on the brake pedal disengages the cruise control by a switch on the brake pedal, not the computer.

Why do brake lights stay on while diving and cruise control doesn't work?


If the brake light switch connected to the brake pedal has failed, the brake lights are stuck on which fools the cruise control into disengaging.

Cruise control works until you hit the brakes then you have to shut off and restart the car to reengage.stays working if you use the switch on steering wheel.


Not sure what the question is here. But yes, cruise control disengages when you tap the brake (for obvious reasons). Just reset everything (turn cruise off) then do it again to reengage cruise control.

Irecently had my transmission fixed by AAMCO. Ever since the repair my cruise control works intermittantly. 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan.


Some cruise controls are vacuum controlled check the vacuum lines make sure they are hooked up and are not leaking air or sucking in outside air. Another cause could be the cruise control switch around the brake pedal. There should be two there is one for the brake lights and the other is for disengaging the cruise control try bending the bracket downward a bit and maybe spraying some WD40 on switch in case it might be sticking due to wear so the switch operates freely. Happy motoring!!!

My all wheel drive subaru is now a fwd only. cruise control quit working I pulled the cruise fuse put it back in. the cruise and awd drive worked for about ten minutes then stopped working again. I am at...


Check that the cruise control module fuses are not blown in the fuse panel. Also make sure your stop lights are working; cruise controls are designed to disengage when the brakes are applied, and one method of sensing that is to monitor brake light current.


then reset your four wheel drive again

I'm getting this code p0582 on Mar 19 2009 you sad you did not no what it was. Do you know now? there no more codes. Cruise Control Related Malfunction i tern on the Cruise Control. Light comes on I set...


P0582 is the Chrysler Diagnostic Trouble Code (Error Code) for:

Speed control vacuum or vent solenoid circuits open or shorted

If you do not have cruise control on your vehicle, you can ignore this code. If you do, you've probably noticed it is no longer working or only works intermittently. The code is saying it's an electrical problem to the servo.

Cruise control went out on my 2005 ford taurus and my accelerator gets stuck at times. Should I replace the cruise control?


This is a dangerous defect. What you want to do is isolate the Cruise cable from the Throttle mechanism. Then get the Cruise cable away from the Throttle so it can not jam the Throttle accidentally.

With the engine OFF use your hand and move the remaining Throttle mechanism and feel for sticking or roughness in the control. If you feel binding, start removing the connection of the Throttle cable and work your way through all the moving parts like a Butterfly flap on the Airhorn, the TPS (throttle position sensor) and so on until you find out what is rubbing.

It is possible that the Cruise was disengaging because the Throttle parts were binding. If disconnecting the Cruise eliminates the sticking throttle, then all the problems came from the Cruise control cable or the Cruise Box. Once you have made a thorough check of the Throttle you can blame the Cruise for your problems and replace the parts.

I own a 2005 GMC Canyon Five CYL and the cruise control stopped working last niight. You push the button and no cruise. I checked the fuse and it is ok I exchanged with another 10AMP and no change still...


Start with the simple and check the fuses and the Stop lamp switch. Check your brake lights, if they're not working, the cruise won't work either. If they're not working, check the fuse for them, if the fuse is fine, then take it into the dealer, there's been a recall issued on the brake switch, so it should get fixed for free.
Cruise Control Disengaged
The powertrain control module (PCM) disengages the cruise control operation based on the signals from the following switches:

* The stop lamp switch
* The TCC brake/cruise release switch
* The clutch release switch, if equipped
* The cruise control On/Off switch

The TCC brake/cruise release switch and the stop lamp switch are mounted on the brake pedal bracket. When the brake pedal is applied, the normally closed TCC brake/cruise release switch opens and the normally open stop lamp switch closes. The PCM detects a low signal voltage on the TCC brake/cruise release switch signal circuit and a high signal voltage on the stop lamp switch signal circuit. When the clutch pedal is applied, the normally closed clutch release switch opens and the PCM detects zero voltage on the CCP switch signal circuit. The vehicle speed stored in the memory of the PCM will be erased when the cruise control On/Off button is turned OFF, or the ignition switch is turned OFF.

The Cruise Control System will disengage when the PCM detects that a driver override function has been active for approximately 60 seconds .

When the Cruise Control System is disengaged, the PCM sends a class 2 message to the instrument panel cluster (IPC) in order to deactivate the cruise control indicator.

Cruise Control Inhibited
The powertrain control module (PCM) inhibits the cruise control operation when any of the following conditions exist:

* A cruise control related DTC has been set.
* The vehicle speed is less than 40.2 km/h (25 mph) .
* The vehicle is in PARK, REVERSE, NEUTRAL, or 1st gear.
* The engine RPM is too low.
* The engine RPM is too high, with fuel cut off.
* The vehicle speed is too high, with fuel cut off.
* The system voltage is not between 9 volts and 16 volts .
* The Traction Control System (TCS) is active for more than 2 seconds .

Thank you for using Fixya and start with replacing the stop lamp switch. Even though the brake light work, it;s been known for that switch to cause your issue. that's way there was a recall for it.
