Question about 2003 Pontiac Vibe

Open Question

Cruise control on 2003 Pontiac Vibe won't engage

Recently you responded to a problem of mine and I did what you said with the brake pedal. After looking under dash for the switch you noted, the only thing I seen was one that the the brake pedal (arm) pushes against when you let off the break. I also checked all fuses that had anything to do with the Cruise control (OK) and the lines coming out of the cruise control actuator appear to be fine. Do you have any other suggestions for me to fix my problem?

Try blowing trash out of the unit attached to the steering wheel.Sometimes,this'll eliminate the issue.If not,U may have to replace the unit.

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.

no, that's not likely the throttle body. start by looking at the throttle body though, if there are cables going to it that control it, follow the cables back, one should go to the firewall, and one should go to a little black box. that box is you're cruise control unit. chances are that is what's causing the problem (try a salvage yard, they're cheaper than a dealer). however if there is an electric motor controlling the throttle, you should take the car to a shop to have it fixed.

THE DEALER WOULD HAVE TO PROGRAM THE BODY CONTROL MODULE TO RECOGNIZE THE ADDED CRUISE CONTROL.

SOURCE: The cruise control does not engage.

there is not a fuse but there is some vaccuum lines. if you are faceing your car with the hood open, look at the right side of the enging bay. near the washer and kind of under the master cyilinder there should be a metal can looking thing with some rubber or plastic lines coming off. replace any vaccuum lines that are worn and your CC should come back.

Cruise control will not engage consistently


check the brake switch on the upper arm of the brake pedal, if its bad your cruise control won't work because the truck thinks your pushing the brake pedal. I had the same problem in mine, it's a $30 part that takes about a half hour to fix

How to fix cruise control


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.

This is normal. Cruise control is supposed to cut out if driving conditions drastically change.

Cruise control fails to engage on '03 ford sport trac


Th is is how I fixed mine! Down on the brake pedal there is a small plastic box about 1 1\2 * 1 1\2 in size. It's called the brake stop light, I think. This part disengages the cruise when the brake is pressed. Not sure on it's other uses! Remove the clip from the part where it attatches the the pedal. For more working room you can remove the plastic keeper. The box has three keepers on it. Pry them out gently to remove the top. Two of the copper pieces inside will have contacts on them about the size of a match stick head. Take them out and clean them with an eraser. This solved my problem, I hope it solves yours. Let Me KNOW!

Cruise control isn't working


just had the same problem... also noticed that my rear brake lights didn't work... sounds like two separate problems but as I did more research, found that both function off of a "brake light switch" that is located under the dash next to the brake pedal. Have someone look at your brake lights to verify that they are working... If not then most likely same problem I had....

In my case, the wear and tear on that switch caused a small plastic clip on the switch to break such that the brake lever never made contact to trigger the switch to turn on the brake lights and never allowed the cruise to engage.

Probably other potential causes but thought I would add since I experienced cruise control problem recently in my grand prix.

Replacement is very easy... and switch was only $12 at Advanced Auto Parts.
