Question about 1997 Chevrolet Venture

1 Answer

My 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 cruise control works when you turn it on, until you brake and hit resume, then it won't resume. If you turn the truck off and let it sit for 30 minutes, the cruise will work again, but only until you hit the brake again and then it won't resume.

check the connector to the fuel pump for corrosion or loose pins, the fuel pumps of newer cars and trucks are designed to last at least 100,000 miles, when the new pumps quit did u verify they had power to them?

SOURCE: tail lights not coming on. wiring problem

Just to be sure, check out the bulbs and sockets.
Make sure the two dots sockets (look into the base) is using two dot bulbs.
====
Check the single brake switch that activate by the brake.
If you has a meter then please check out the contact points.
Sometime this switch move out of aligment.
Dirt can also be part of the problem.
===== I will apply 12V power to the brake switch socket and make sure the blubs light to rule out wire problem first.
Please post more infor on the comment window.

SOURCE: Brake lights not functioning and cruise control will not set.

Lift the pedal, and see if the light goes off, if it does, there is a switch on the pedal that is out of adjustment. If it does not go off, the switch could have fallen off, or it is broken. Anyways, it is under the dash, should be right up the brake pedal. First, try to adjust it, to get it closer to the brake pedal arm, if it doesn't go off, it should be bad, take it off, and take it to the auto parts place, they should be able to test it, with a multimeter.
This is probably why the cruise control does not work also, as when you drive down the road and hit the brakes, the cruise goes off.

Cruise control not working in my 2009 Silverado. It went out gradually over the past several months, pretty much worked intermittantly.


cruise control module has failed. or if your brake lights are staying on, then brake light switch has failed and not allowing cruise to engage. Have someone stand behind truck and see if brakes are working properly, if not- replace brake light switch. if fine, then swap out cruise control module under hood.... prob find one at a junk yard.

Cruise control on 1996 Chevy Silverado won't hold speed


Possibly a broken wire in the steering column. Wires goint through the steering column for the cruise are so fragile when the tilt is used alot causing the wires to brake. Part is $70.00 through advance auto. Cheapest I've found if you order online.

Cruise control is out on my 09 silverado. small v-6. fuse is good. had throttle body replaced 3 months ago. 126k miles, i drive a lot. tried the top off the master cylinder trick. still won't work....


you could have a problem with the brake switch which de-activates the cruise when you push on the brake or a bad cruise switch or control module.have the cruise system checked out to find what is causing the problem first then go from there.

I have a 08 silverado 1500 and i cant figure out why my cruise control doesnt turn on anymore. everybody i ask says its the fuses but there good and the electronics arent my deal


Hello cacheek,

Check your brake lights especially the "HIGH BRAKE LIGHT" this is the one on the cab above the rear window.

If it is out replace the bulbs and recheck your cruise control operation.

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.
