There is a cruise control canister that is part of the throttle mechanism,,,and it has a plunger on one side ...other side connects to your throttle cables...check the hose leading to the plunger side of that canister....sometimes it pulls off...or gets damaged...try replacing that hose with a new one. that hose is connected to the transmission.. the transmission develops a vacuum based on your speed, then that level of vacuum controls that canister, then that canister moves in proportion with your throttle cable thus maintaining your speed. hope this helps.

How do you activate the cruise control on a Mercedes ML 270 cdi.


If you know how to set your speed limiter. To set your cruise control, press the stalk in (to the right). The orange light on your dash should go out and you're ready to set your cruise control. You can start the cruise control by either moving the cruise control stalk up or down. Once you start the cruise control you can move the stalk up or down to increase or decrease your cruise speed. You can move it toward you to shut off the cruise control. You can press it in again to go back to the speed limiter. I hope this helps.

Cruise control stopped working


no year stated, wow.
the first checks are not the CRUISE.
they are:
1: all fuses good.
2: CEL lamp out driving, if not the PCM will in fact cut Cruise function ( preventing TOYOTA SYNDROME)
3: scan tool do a full PCM scan, got errors. got DTCs, bingo.

today cruise is the last to work, (a very serious safety issue)

2007 chrysler 300c cruise control wont lock in and hold speed says i ts on the dash but is not engauging


.
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.

How can i activate my cruise control in my 2004 grand cherokee


The cruise control switches are located on the steering wheel. When the cruise control is turned on there will be a green light luminated on the dash that says "cruise". When at the desired speed press "set" to set the cruise control at that speed.

2007 GMC Yukon Cruise Control will not engage. Brake lights are working properly. Cruise control light is on but indicator on dash does not appear.


Check the speed sensor. Look up the location at autozone .com or google. It is either near the tranny or at the passenger side wheel. The speed sensor is almost always connected to cruise control problems.

My Cruise Control Wont work, is there a special way to turn on the cruise, because the sign for cruise comes up but it doesnt cruise


First, your car must be in gear and driving approx more than 60 km an hour
Secondly, using the Cruise Stalk switch turn the Cruise on, the dash should now have a lit icon for cruise power (green).
Once you have the desired speed, gently press the button on the end of the cruise in to set your speed. Remove foot from throttle and confirm cruise is active. Another dash light should come on as well (orange)

Failing that, if it doesnt work the usual suspect like fuses and the brake pedal micro switch should be looked at...
