Recently I attempted to use my cruise on my Pontiac Vibe ''2003'', mind you I very seldom use it due to a lack of highway driving, but I went to set it and the dash light went on, but as soon as I let my foot off of the gas pedal the light went out and it never set.

Re: Cruise control will not engage
Hi, May be worth checking the switch at the brake pedal could just be that its sticking slightly, if you try the cruise control out again just flick foot under brake pedal and lift it up to make sure not holding any pressure on switch.

cruise controls are governed by 5 settings and sensors
one is engine rpms
vehicle road speed ,( manual transmission will not activate under 20 klms /hr
brake pedal switch
clutch pedal switch ( VSS if auto)
off/on switch control
any one of these not lined up will not allow the cruise control to work
Possibly a broken wire in the steering column. Wires goint through the steering column for the cruise are so fragile when the tilt is used alot causing the wires to brake. Part is $70.00 through advance auto. Cheapest I've found if you order online.
Cruise controls can cease to engage if the clutch or brake light cruise switch are out of adjustment. If this happens, try placing you foot under the clutch pedal (if equipped) and lift up on it (toward you) and hold it while engaging the cruise. If it now works, it will likely cut out when you remove your foot from under the pedal. Check the brake pedal in an identical fashion. Adjusting the switch at the pedals can often solve he problem. Some vehicles (Honda, Acura, Ford, to name a few) have a plastic insert that mounts in the pedal arm which presses against the switch. These can become brittle and fracture into pieces. My Acura has little pieces of blue plastic on the floorboard around the brake pedal one afternoon and I noticed the cruise didn't work. It was the pieces of the insert that had come to pieces preventing the cruise from coming on. I replaced the insert and no more problem with the cruise.
