Sometimes the plastic cog on the side of the throttle body (TB) breaks. This cog is "pulled" by the cruise control accuator's cable.
To check, simply look on the side of the TB and check to see of the cable end has broken free. (The mechanisim is much like the brake cable on a bike)

I applied brakes lighting indication disappeared i-e, light indication was responding but cruise control did not enable. I tried it 3 to 4 times but same results.

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.

How to fix cruise control


Cruise controls can cease to engage if the clutch or brake light cruise switch are out of adjustment. If this happens, try placing you foot under the clutch pedal (if equipped) and lift up on it (toward you) and hold it while engaging the cruise. If it now works, it will likely cut out when you remove your foot from under the pedal. Check the brake pedal in an identical fashion. Adjusting the switch at the pedals can often solve he problem. Some vehicles (Honda, Acura, Ford, to name a few) have a plastic insert that mounts in the pedal arm which presses against the switch. These can become brittle and fracture into pieces. My Acura has little pieces of blue plastic on the floorboard around the brake pedal one afternoon and I noticed the cruise didn't work. It was the pieces of the insert that had come to pieces preventing the cruise from coming on. I replaced the insert and no more problem with the cruise.

Whenever I had my cruise control on, the engine would just quit. We stopped using cruise as we were on a trip. When we did a test run with the cruise on again, smoke and electrical smell started rolling...


It sounds like you have a serious electrical problem in your steering column. It is probably a bad switch for he cruise control or set of speed, but could also just be a bare wire touching the metal steering column.

The stalling COULD be that your cruise control is partially engaged.

How to use cruise control


Here are the steps in using cruise control:

  1. Get on a road you will be traveling at the same speed for a long period of time, such as a freeway.
  2. Reach your desired speed. Choose a speed that allows you to move with the flow of traffic and not go over or under the designated speed limit for that road.
  3. Locate the ON and SET buttons on your steering wheel. Press ON first and SET after. Your cruise control is now activated. Most vehicles must be traveling at least 30 miles per hour to set the cruise control.
  4. Press and hold the SET button if you wish to use cruise control at a higher speed. Hold until your desired speed is reached.
  5. Decrease speed by pressing the COAST button.
  6. Push the brake pedal to disengage the cruise control function. If you wish to return to the previous set speed, use the RES (resume) button. You must be traveling at least 30 miles per hour for this function to resume.
  7. Erase any previous speed by pressing the OFF button.

"Cruise" on a 5-speed '00 Hyundai Elantra


I have this same car. The place you set speed control is on the windshield wiper switch on the right side of the steering column. The button with the indicator light has to be pushed in order to use the cruise control but just because the indicator light is on, it does not mean the cruise is on. Hope this helps a little. If you need more info and someone else doesn't answer more eloquently.. I'll check back and try to give you more info. :-)
