The most common problem i have found with these trucks is a missing/cracked/broken vacuum line that attaches to your cruise control solenoid. check all the lines, make sure you have vacuum to the solenoid and make sure you have power to it as well

What is the function of the cruise control, and when should i use it.

the cruise control is for expressway or throughway driving or any open highway ,it cuts down on fuel by not useing so much gas. it stays at a constant speed it depends where it is set too. after cruise control is set, you can cancel it anytime by turning it off or putting on the brakes. most cruise controls will not set below 40 mph. this is a feature to keep from using it in the city, or populated area. hope this helps you ! good-day !

Can the emission control sensor cause the cruise control to stop working?

An emission control sensor cannot cause the cruise control from working. They are two separate systems.

However, if the engine rides rough or bucks, then it will be difficult for the cruise control to regulate speed on the highway.

Cruise Control not holding.

If the wiring is good and it is trying to engage then the cruise control module is getting the signal to engage.I would try a used cruise control module.You can get one from a salvage yard.Good luck.

Cruise control will not engage

pull the plastic cover off the top of the engine and check where the cable from the cruise control connects by the throttle body. There is a plastic connector that might be broken. i had the same problem and a piece of tape fixed it for me but you can replace the part if your picky.

Cruise control will not engage

Hi, May be worth checking the switch at the brake pedal could just be that its sticking slightly, if you try the cruise control out again just flick foot under brake pedal and lift it up to make sure not holding any pressure on switch.

You may have a faulty brake lamp switch at the brake pedal. If the brake lights come on (via a bad switch), the cruise will cut off.
