Question about 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2 Answers

Cruise control has quit working in my 93 jeep grand cherokee.

Also when I run the A.C., it only comes out of the defrost vents. Is there a fuse that controls this, and where is it?

Most cars operates these devices with vacuum generated by the engine. Start out by checking all you hoses (not cooling system hoses) for vacuum leaks. Be sure to look carefully as some hoses can rub through on the bottom where they rest and you would have to "roll" it over to see it. Don't really believe it is electrical. Some cars use "one way valves" to prevent loss of vacuum so when car is not running, you still have some minor vacuum available. Some cars also have a canister, like a vacuum chamber. Look at all of it.

Good Luck.

Check the adjustment on the brake light switch. My brake lights were on all the time and the cruise control wouldn't engage. Adjusted the switch (on the top of the brake pedal) and everything is OK.

inspect your vacuum lines running from the passenger
firewall to the motor for cracks or breaks .
vacuum from the motor controls air flow.

Cruise control just quit working


Check fuses/relays and make sure they are all good; if so check the electrical wiring/connectors in the dash. Jeeps are notorious for loose wires in the dash.

Knob on air conditioner not working right and cruise control stopped working at same time


It is a vacuum leak under the hood. If it is a six cylinder, look on the driver side of the intake manifold for a L shaped fitting that usually pops off. If it is a V8 the leak may be near the battery.

Cruise wont set and A/c blowing out Defrost vents and not A/C ven


Sounds to me like a VACUUM HOSE LEAK under the hood. Both the CRUISE CONTROL and A/C control doors are vacuum operated. Where the LOOSE or BROKEN HOSE is the big question. With the engine running and the hood open , closely listen for a " HISSING " sound, and if you are lucky, you might find the source of your problems. Hope this helps.

Cruise not working is there a fuse for 2000 jeep grand cherokee?


Look on the drivers side of the intake manifold to see if the vacuum line fell off. It will be a 90 degree elbow coming down from the firewall area.

2001 Jeep Cherokee a/c blows defroster only, no cruise control


There is a vacuum leak under the hood somewhere. Check the vacuum at the speed control servo. If there is no vacuum on the line with the engine running, follow the line to find the leak. The vacuum reservoir is mounted under the battery tray. I would look in that area after confirming no vacuum at the servo.

Cruise control quit working in 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee. fuses all seem to be fine. also is having trouble shifting gears. it is an automatic, straight V6, with 172,000 miles.


there are a few things that can inhibit the cruise control on a jeep, and the more prevalent one is a vacuum leak in that circuit (hose) that runs off the intake manifold (rearmost one with the check valve in it), which then jogs over to the passenger side of the vehicle, and takes a dive down under the battery tray to the vacuum reservoir. if you are creative about making a plug after pulling the hose off the intake manifold, and then disconnect the tiny hose from the cruise control actuator, also on the passenger side of the engine compartment, and then pull vacuum either with your mouth or a small vacuum pump, then you've proven that this is not the reason the system is not working. Also, if your valve cover rearmost vacuum line to the intake manifold is 'leaky', it will cause this as well as other issues, such as defroster or air conditioning not to blow thru the air vents into the crew cabin, but only onto the windshield defroster vents. if this turns out not to be the problem, and the hose and valve cover fitting are in good shape (the center section of this is plastic and brittle and subject to cracking and breaking, by the way!), it's a good time to start to suspect the brake pedal switch. this switch has contacts that do more than just allow the brake lights to come on, there are cruise control 'inhibit' contacts in this switch as well. and yes, these do tend to go bad. in any case, if the instrument cluster blue light never comes on, it suggests that the system has more than vacuum problems and this brake pedal switch is most likely the cause if there is no other known electrical problem, such as an open circuit for the cruise control. I wish I could offer more, but the liklihood of the actuator being the root cause of this failure, is pretty slim, and there is not much else for you to play with, though there is probably an Engine Control Module possibility here, as a group of five or six Cruise Control wires actually go into that box. In any case, do the vacuum hose and vacuum checks first, then start to think about the 30 dollar switch on the brake pedal.
