Go online to Autozone.com and register your car for free wiring diagrams and fusebox layouts. Then look to see how the Cruise control is fused. It may just need a new fuse.

There are some Cruise units which work with Vacuum. For those you need to apply Vacuum to see if the diaphragm is sealed or leaking.

The rest of the controls are pretty simple. Everything under the hood my be fine and the problem may be in the activation switch. The off and on control may simply not be turning the Cruise on. DO NOT HOT WIRE THE CRUISE UNIT. It needs to shut off with sensing the Brake pedal and the normal power feed needs to cut off.

Now Salvage parts work well for this kind of repair as long as the car was not front end collided in an accident. You can also scarf up extra mounting hardware in case you drop something. The stalk controls on the column are a mixed matter. Some Salvage yards want to sell the entire steering column as a unit, some will sell the stalk controls, steering wheel, etc. piece by piece.

Carparts.com is a collection of networked Salvage yards which ship to your door. They show the parts beforehand, rate condition, and show prices all for you to select. Some have warranties.

You should probably trace the wiring to see if the Cruise unit is getting power. If the power is reaching the box and pod under the hood and then not working, it is probably your problem.

Please rate my info.

SOURCE: where is the ecm on a 94 buick park avenue and

On that specific car i'm not sure, but most GMs i've had that were those year models had the ECU or ECM (same thing basically) located either in the glove box compartment (sometimes you need to remove the glove box itself to see it) or underneath the passenger seat. As for what it looks like, it's simple, it looks like a box made out of sheet metal, about as wide as 2 bricks, but twice as thin, and has 2 or 3 big wiring harnesses coming out of it.

SOURCE: repair seat belt latch - stuck- 1998 buick park-

Seat belts are usually not repairable.The only thing that can be done is to check and make sure nothing is stuck in it or that it is not twisted.You have the kind that is in the seat back itself.These are a little more difficult to remove from the seat because it is so easy to break the plastic trim covers.Best thing to do if not familiar with auto repair to go to the dealer or auto repair shop that you trust and have them repair it.Good luck.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

I'm suspecting that it's not a fuse issue. It's more like a PCM (power train control module) issue. If the PCM is faulty something will surely fail. First to consider is to replace the PCM if that's the case, but before proceeding please try this trick. Remove the positive battery connector and let it sit for at least 5mins. or more before reconnecting it. This will reset the system and can get your vehicle back to it's normal operation.
If the problem still persists then go for the PCM replacement. I believe you'll be good after the replacement.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

If the blower is working, your door that controls hot/cold air may be stuck. If it is not, check your fuses. If it is the blend control, you can reach behind the glove box and manually try to open.

Cruise control only work intermittenly what could


Cable is shorting out then making contact which is letting it work for a short period, look under your car about where your speed-o is and you should be able to find it, you will most likely find it has ben rubbed or touching somehting that gets hot under there.
