SOURCE: i scanned my bmw 2007

A couple of possibilities, the most common is brake light switch on brake pedal. Switch or actual wires have come off - check that first. Then check connections on your cruise control unit, they corrode over time and lose contact

What causes my cruise controll to not work intermittenly

cruise control starts working above 50kmh, so if your under that it wont work. the cruise servo may be at fault, or I have seen battery acid leak down on the vacuum lines causing cruise not to work correctly. cruise control works off of a vacuum so without it, it wont work. if the cruise light doesn't turn on when pressing the set/cruise button intermitantly it may be the switch itself that is starting to fail

Cruise control is inoperative

It can be faulty cruise control 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.

2000 Mercury Sable Cruise Control stopped working

Check the fuse panel. Look for a fuse that says cruise on it. If you cant find a fuse for that check your cigarette lighter fuse. somtimes they are conected. Its going to be something simple like that.

Cruise control comes on by itself. the cruise control kicks on by itself for about 20-30 sec then turns off. sometimes it happens right after I start the car before I put it in gear but usually while Im...

i'd be checking fuses and realys. Who know's ur faulty relay could do something like that as well. If not then have your cuise control servo checked and replaced if necessary. check for loose connection or corroded connection. also make sure your switch is not half way in between on and off itself. good luck!

My cruise stopped working on my 1991 GMC Sierra 1500 while I was driving. I did a continuity test on the brake switch and it works fine. Any ideas?

Check your cruise control fuse or relay. It will be in your owners manual. If fuse is good than the cruise itself may be faulty. Check continuity on cruise controler itself. If there is power, than the controller itself is bad and need to be replaced. If there is no power than it may be a faulty switch.
