Cruise control doesn't engage 1999 volvo s80 t6

The cruise light comes on on the dash but when I try to set the speed it doesn't engage. I don't think it is the brake pedal; my abs and stc warning lights are on due to a broken exciter ring on the front left hub (not sure whether the abs module is okay as these warning lights were on when I bought the car). Is there a common problem with these cruise units? Any ideas as to the most likely cause? I appreciate your thoughts!

    Thanks for your reply. I am going to get my speed sensor ring replaced shortly, and if this cures the abs and stc I'll know if the cruise control works. Thanks again

According the the owners manual (I have the same car, and the same problem), the cruise control will disengage automatically if wheel slip is sensed. This makes me think that if the ABS isn't working properly, Cruise control and STC will not function either, since it's the ABS's function to detect wheel slip.

Not a volvo mechanic but on most american cars the abs and stc modules are in direct corilation with the cruise even though the cruise is most likely ran from vacume the disengagement is electrical.

Taurus 2000 cruise control


i've been told it's speed sensors. I have the same on my 1999, but my light flashes when i try to engage. And 1 out of 10 times, it engages and I can cruise. Just not worth it to me to fix. Ford never claimed there was a problem.

Cruise control won't engage


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.

Fuel Relay


It is in the passenger compartment relay box under the left side of the dash. Along one edge there are 6 rectangular relays grouped 2 together and 4 together. The fuel pump relay is second over from the gap between the 2 groups of relays. My diagram marks it as CMI 12.
