Question about 1995 Nissan Maxima

95 maxima cruise control doesn't work

Hello I have a 95 maxima and the cruise control does not work. The main switch comes on OK (lights up) but then when I set in from the switch on the steering wheel - it does not set. My local mechanic knows nothing about how to fix it. Is this a major problem? Is it fixable? What is the most likely problem? Or should I just forget about it for a 10 year old car?

He needs to resistance check the control switches and check the brake switch.

    This normally isn't major. It's likely the brake switch.

Is there a fuse for the cruise control?


Most cruise controls are vacuum actuated. check for vacuum leaks. This also occurs at the brake petal where cruise is disengaged, check for proper adjustment on the cruise switch.

Cruise control not working


The adjustment of the brake light switch or it could be bad. the brake lights can work fine and the part of the switch that works the cruise doesn't The swiches that control it from the steering wheel can losse connection in a part called the clock spring. Vacume connections can effect the cruise but yours is likly cables less therefore doesn't work the cruize.

1985 380 SEL Cruise control column switch started smoking. Removed fuse. Changed switch and all electrical contacts test OK. Cruise control not working. Where is main unit located and what is...


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

If everything is good then the problem will be the control column lever switch. It surely is fried that's why it won't communicate to the cruise control. I strongly suggest that you have the control column switch replaced to resolve the issue. You may get one from the junkyard to cut the cost.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

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.

Cruise control shows power on but will not turn.


the most common cause of this is the rotating ribbon contact for the steering wheel switches is defective, this contact ribbon is under the steering wheel and is commonly called the clock spring contact.
