2005 VW GTI cruise not working

My 2005 GTI cruise is not working. when i switch the cruise on, the light on the dash does come on but when i try to set the speed nothing happens. It is not the brake switch because my brake lights work and I already had that recalled. I think it might be either the vacuum pump or the steering column its self, but I highly doubt its the steering column because the light comes on on the dash. I have looked everywhere for clues as to where the vacuum pump is located in the car but I can not figure out where it is at and have not found anything on the internet... I dont want to take it in to get fixed if it's just a vacuum line that has come loose... please help?

    well, I have ruled out the brake switch because it has already been replaced... I have a strong feeling that it is the vacuum line because everything else seems to be working perfectly fine... All that I am looking for is some sort of a diagram or specification as to where the cruise vacuum is located so that I can figure out the problem, if not, then rule it out of possible issues... Thank you!

A cruise control is controlled by several items. a switch on the brake pedal (adjustment) switch on the clutch (if you have 0ne) tailshaft speed sensor against engine rpm and vacumm. IF the road speed is too low for the engine revs it wont' engage. If an efi vehicle the sensor on the tailshaft will not tell the cpu to engauge and without this input it won't

SOURCE: My Mark 5 VW Golf windscreen washer front and rear

sounds like it is the washer pump that is located on the tank itself it is what pushes the fluid out take a look at it do you see a blue residue around the lower end of it that is a common issue for those pumps to go out

What is the warning light on 2005 vw gti


Hello! A thermometer light with two wavy lines underneath the thermometer indicates a problem with the VW's cooling system...When the engine is cold; Check the coolant level in the radiator...If it is full and since the light goes out when the engine reaches normal operating temperature the Low Coolant Level sensor is defective...But I suspect the level is low..

2005 Honda Accord 4cyl cruise control does not work


check all your fuses first then take a look at the brake switch and there is a criuse cancel switch also, i think there may be a problem with the switch,even if the cancel switch was bad i think the power would still stay on but cruise would just stop and power would stay on. check fuses and switches anyway to be sure then take a look at the power switch.

The read out on dash says service electric brake system,brakes seem to work ok and when i select cruise control it will not set


Do your brake lights work? Your cruise is tied in with your brake lights. If your brake lights are stuck on or there could be a bad switch or bad wire on the switch then your cruise wont work.

2003 GTI 1.8T ESP light on and cruise control inoperative.


If the ESP light on the touran stayys on pernamently then it is extremely likely that the ABS control unit is faulty. Its a common problem with tourans, unfortunately the part alone is about £1000.
