What causes cruise control to shut off after a short period of operation

I would start with the cruise control relay first ! it may be getting hot and shutting down. Then check the cruise control fuse. If all is ok! Then purchase a Haynes manual for your specific vehicle. It shows a lot of info, for your vehicle. You can get the manual at any auto parts store for about $ 20.00. God- Bless! Hope this helps.

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.

1991 Maxima cruise control cuts out.

I had a problem with the interlock switch located on the brake pedal. There are too switches one for the brake lights and one dedicated to the cruise control. If either switch is acting up it will affect the cruise control. Then interlock switch is the same switch that is used on the clutch with cars that have a manual transmission. It has smaller electrical terminals in the connector than the brake light switch. You can jumper the connection and see if it solves the problem. You still have the other switch that will disengage the cruise control when you hit the brake. If that is the problem then that's the one you need to replace.

Horn and cruise don't work

The horn and cruise is activated through a clock spring switch assembly located under the steering wheel. Diagnosis is done by removing the steering wheel . It also controls the airbag electrical so use caution..

there is a control box for the cruise control behind the glove box . You can remove the cover by pushing in from both sides of the glove box door . the control box will be just inside the glove box to the top. it simply unplugs. any junk yard with an aerostar or ranger or explorer will have one of these control boxes fairly cheap. these control boxes are commonly known to just quit workingand are a very easy fix.
