Question about 1985 Nissan 300ZX

1 Answer

Cruise control stopped working

The cruise control on my Z quit working. The light on the inst. panel comes on when you flip the dash switch. But when I push the cruise button on the steering wheel it doesn,t work. The 2nd cruise indicator on the inst. panel doesn't come on. Nor does the cruise engage. I can not find a blown fuse. Is there anything else I could check? If I knew where it is at on the motor maybe I could use a meter on the controller. Can you tell me where this is located?

Check brake switch under dash above the brake pedal. See if sensing wires are broken . or if it uses a duplicate switch sensor check it is engaging properly. Also check you tube on possible failures.
Also in the engine bay the cable from the accelerator petal will attach to the trottle on the engine. Check for another cable at this location from the cruise control and check the cable is not broken .

Check brake globes are functioning and are not blown as well.

Bad relay. They are to the right of the fuses (fuses inside the car). You can see the relays if you open the cover to the fuses (they are big blue cubes), but will need to remove a few screws to remove the panel to get to them. I can't remember which one it is, it might make a clicking noise when you try and turn on the cruise. Or you can swap "matching relays - compare diagram on top" and see what else stop working. I had to replace several, my dash when out, my cruise, and I think one is the fan that blows your ac and heat.

check the fuse and relay, or you may have vacuum leak at the cruise diaphram.

My 2006 f150 has new brakes and rotors,fluid full but my dash brake light stays on. Soon as you start it and the whole time you drive. Also the cruise quit too. Once the light went off then the cruise


This sounds like the brake light switch or the control switch on the brake pedal is bad or loose. Check under the dash above the brake pedal there should be one or two switches that tell the brake lights to come on and the cruise control to shut down.

2003 oldsmobile alero v6 -- cruise control stopped working...The cruise on/of button lights up, the green light cruise indicator comes on in the dash panel, but cruise control does not engage when CST SET...


Try checking the small switch at the top of the brake pedal. There may be two one for brake lights and one for the cruise control. To ascertain what is what, pull one wire off and see if brake lights work. If not, then the other switch controls the cruise control disconnect and engage..I you have a DC test light check to see if power is on on both side of the switch with brake pedal up. If so, depress pedal and check power on the other side there should be none, if there is the switch is defective.

Crusie control does not work on 2011 gmc sierra 1500 and I've already replaced the switch?


If the switch is replaced,then it can be wiring issue or faulty cruise control board.But as the switch is replaced,get the voltage at the switch tested to confirm the switch is actually receiving voltage.If no voltage received at switch power supply wire then ,apply external 12 volt power to the cruise control switch wire and then see if cruise control comes ON.If yes,then you know wiring is issue.

The cruise control switch will not engage or set when pushing set button, but the green cruise light is on on the dash.


Check your fuse panels both inside, and outside the vehicle, as well as the connections to the cruise control.

In 1998 2wd Grand Cherokee cruise control stopped working


Do the brake lights work now, as they should? The brake light switch generally triggers the cruise control to snooze.

Cruise Control Problems


Possibly a fuse if you haven't checked, My MAX a/c switch wouldn't light up or work so I looked at the fuses and the wrong fuse was in the blower and cig lighter so I changed them and the a/c is working perfectly so check to make sure the fuses are the correct ones or they possibly wont work!!!
