Cruise control not working properly

When I switch on my cruise control via the steering wheel the car slows down when I release the accelerator. I then hold down the button and the car will eventually pick up speed but when it get to 60mph it stops working completely but then the reset doesn't work. Any ideas?

Check the brake switch below the brake pedal. It may think the brake is being pressed if that switch is not working properly. Also check for vacuum hose leak or damage in the same area.

Cruse control on 2008 Chevy Suburban stopped working. Changed the brake lamp switch (twice). Any suggestions? Where is the fuse located?


This is a computer controlled system (BCM) supply's power to switch .Voltage is supplied to the cruise control switch via the steering wheel control switch reference voltage circuit supplied by the BCM.
The following are the main components of the Cruise Control System:
• The accelerator pedal
• The stop lamp switch
• The body control module (BCM)
• The cruise control switches
• The engine control module (ECM)
• The throttle actuator control (TAC) motor
• The vehicle speed sensor (VSS)

Taking your vehicle to a quailfied repair shop would be your best option . Using a factory scan tool to view input data from switches and sensors is the only way to diagnose the cruise control on your vehicle . Just replacing parts does not cut it .

The body control module (BCM) monitors the signal circuit of the cruise control switches. The BCM relays the cruise control switch status to the engine control module (ECM) via the GMLAN serial data circuit. The ECM uses the status of the cruise control switch to determine when to capture and maintain the vehicle speed. The ECM monitors the vehicle speed signal circuit in order to determine the desired vehicle speed. The ECM uses the throttle actuator control (TAC) motor in order to maintain the vehicle speed. For further information on the TAC System, refer to Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) System Description .

This is not a fuse problem !!!!!!!!!

You probably don't know what GMLAN serial data is ,do you ? It's GM 's version of C.A.N. How to Diagnose Controller Area Network CAN

Why isn't cruise control working?


Did you replace the cruise control release switch and relay? They are cheap from RockAuto. This sounds like your problem. (The relay is made so that it will not engage, if it will not release.)

2005 Chevy trailblazer ext problems 1. Cruise will not set.worked last on 4/12/15 2. While checking fuses for CC problemdome lights stopped working, but worked fine before checking fuses. PLEASE HELP!


Bummer deal! This may be a way to tell you some tail lights are burnt out. Some cruise controls have a fuse in a second location.
The fuse is not in right or is blown. Check with a new fuse. Hope this helps. ...gc http://www.auto-tune-up-and-repair-options.com/

Ford focus cruise control


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.

I want to know how to use my cruise control in my 1994 Toyota pickup. It has all the buttons and the capability but the words are scratched off and i don't have a manual.


Generally... There is ON/OFF - SET - ACCELERATE/RESUME, COAST/DECELERATE. Cruise is available at speeds above 35mph or so. Sometimes there is no main on/off. Cruise on a turn signal stem has a button that pushes in on the end, push when at desired speed. resume/accelerate slides to right, is spring loaded and return left when released. the same lever when slid left is coast/decelerate. Momentarily sliding accelerate and releasing increases crusing speed by a couple mph. If brakes are used cruise disengages, sliding resume returns you to cruise speed after braking. Coast/decelerate disengages cruise, when at desired lower speed hit set. On some, hitting set not needed, when coast is released speed is maintained. Variations may be up/ down instead or may be steering wheel face mounted. Please rate answer. Duct tape is like the force, it has a dark side.. a light side.. and holds the universe together!

I have a 2008 Honda CRV and for the life of me I cannot engage the Cruise control- I press the Cruise Button on the right of the steer wheel and nothing happens - nothing Help anyone ? Tks Nancy


The cruise-controls have 2-buttons that must be activated before it gets the car going when you remove your foot off the gas-pedal.
The cruise button is essentailly a switch that turns 'on' the cruise servo-motor that tells the sytems that you wants to use it, so it gets ready.
There are other three switches on the right-side of the steering wheel namely: resume accel; cancel; set decel.
To get your car to cruise: you must steady your speed and foot on the gas-pedal. You cannot just press the switches and expect the car to cruise. It takes about two-to-three seconds for the system to respond to a set cruising speed.
How to do it: accelerate to a speed of about 30-mph. Press the 'cruise' button on the dash first. Next you press 'set decel' button. This will turn 'on' the cruise control light on the instrument panel. Then wait a second or three and you would feel the cruise engagement. Any touch on the brake pedal will slow down the car and turns the cruise off. The 'cancel' button turns off the cruise light on the instrument panel.
If you hit the brake-pedal at any time for any reason, and you would like to continue cruising again, simply press the 'resume accel' button.
The cruise system works in conjunction with the braking system of the car. So all major parts of the braking system must be in good condition, otherwise the cruise system could shut off itself.

What are the functions of Resume &Coast buttons in steering wheel


If set at a specific speed and you have to slow down by hitting the brakes, The brakes turn off the cruise control. Pressing resume automatically turns the cruise control back on and accelerates to the previous speed setting. You can also use it to accelerate and by releasing it the new speed will be set.

Why cruise control won't work on 2003 ford explorer


If you hit "On", cruise control is on. It's just not set to the speed.

To properly set the cruise control, do the following procedure:

  1. Select the "On" button on the left side of the steering wheel
  2. On the right side of the steering wheel, there is a "+" along with "Set", press that button after you have accelerated to the speed you desire to maintain.
  3. Use the "+ and -" to speed up or slow down your vehicle.
  4. To temporarly disable the cruise control, simply press the brake pedal.
  5. To resume the previously desired speed, press the top button "Resume"

Cruse controll


Pull up on the brake pedal. If that does not work check your brake light bulbs (LED brake lights will also keep your cruise control form working). Finally check all of the fuses. This system needs at least 3 different fuses to work properly.
