How to get cruise control working on 94 buick park avenue
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.
