Question about 1999 Volvo S80
I have a 1999 volvo s 80 t6. My cruise control button will turn on the system ( "Cruise" lights up on the dash) but when I push the button to engage nothing happens. I know it could just be the brake pedal switch but I have lifted on the pedal with no result. I am wondering if my abs problem is related (I have removed the exciter ring on the front left hub as it was broken-- also possible that the abs module isn't working properly (I bought the car with the abs light already on)). Are there any typical weaknesses with this cruise control system I should focus on.
Most likely the clock spring is not the problem because when u push the button the dash light cruise comes on.wich means that you do not have an open circuit.with a light tester check to see if you are getting power to the cruise control servo.if you are then replace it.if no power you will need a new cruise control stick on the steering column.

There is one weakness, the rotating clock spring contact that connects the airbag and other controls from the steering wheel to the steering column harness, it may have an open, if u have a wiring harness diagram you can test the switch a the column connector to see if it sends the cruise signal to engage, if not then the switch or rotating contact are defective in most cases.
