    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.

Most at the time its a brake/cruise control swich located above brake pedal.Its might be shorted or pedal not pushing swich back enough for cruise to work.Anyway the swich is ajustable or replaceable.Ajust it so buton goes about 1/2 of its lengt in.

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!!!

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.
