Re: Cruise control not working
There are 2 possible parts here, one is a transmission speed sensor, this part tells the cruise what speed u set and keep it there, the other is the the actual actuator that holds the throttle at the right position to maintain set speed, other less common issue's make sure the brake and clutch (if manual trans only) cruise cut off switche's are ok

cruise control starts working above 50kmh, so if your under that it wont work. the cruise servo may be at fault, or I have seen battery acid leak down on the vacuum lines causing cruise not to work correctly. cruise control works off of a vacuum so without it, it wont work. if the cruise light doesn't turn on when pressing the set/cruise button intermitantly it may be the switch itself that is starting to fail
Once you have turned your cruise control on accelerate to desired speed press SET button on right hand side of steering wheel before lifting foot from accelerator, then remove foot from accelerator. pushing RESUME button will deactivate cruise control without turning it off. Then when clear of traffic push resume again to activate cruise control. It will automatically resume to previous set speed.
. Hello, "arthur o'neill". Your car has parts under the hood to engage and control the throttle. Those parts, as well as others, such as the speedometer, and its cable must all be working properly, for cruise control to work. Either take it a mechanic, or get a 'shop manual', for your particular model.
First possible solution: On many Hondas the AC button will only light when you slide the blower fan on. (The right slider knob on a 92 Prelude)
The second solution: When you notice your AC button NOT lighting, pay attention to see if your vent selector buttons actually switch your air direction from floor to face to defrost, etc. Also, take not to see if they fail to light also. If the other buttons don't light, you may have to pull out and disassemble your climate control cluster to actually "re-solder" the terminals on the GREEN PLUG receptacle back on to the circuit board. It's a difficult task to get out and in but if you're very careful, nothing gets broke. I have done this repair recently to a Prelude and it worked. There is not enough reinforcement on the board for this plug and it wiggles enough to cause a cold solder (broken connection).
check for a fuse,i believe its by the drivers side door in the dash,then check if there is vacumm going to the cruise control,check to make sure the brake light isnt staying on,check to see if the linkage is still hooked up,and try wiggling the on\off switch back and forth(slide switch)..it could be a bad switch which the turn signal switch is on the same setup,or the cruise unit under the hood.
Sounds like possibly a safety switch associated with the brake or shifter is engaging intermittently. There is definitely one behind the brake because when you apply the brake the cruise kicks out. Try looking for this switch and check it out.
