SOURCE: The cruise control does not engage.

there is not a fuse but there is some vaccuum lines. if you are faceing your car with the hood open, look at the right side of the enging bay. near the washer and kind of under the master cyilinder there should be a metal can looking thing with some rubber or plastic lines coming off. replace any vaccuum lines that are worn and your CC should come back.

SOURCE: Engine light and traction control system off light on

Hi accannaday,
Thank you for requesting me to help you with your problem.

The lights you described are warning lamps that are telling you that there is a malfunction in one or more of the HUNDREDS of systems and electrical circuits in your vehicle. Nobody can help you with this problem (including myself) until you have your computer network in your vehicle scanned for Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs). Without these codes nobody can do any more than "GUESS" what the problem is. On the other hand, although I cannot tell you for certain what the problem is, I can explain some things to you and make a pretty good "educated guess".

Your check engine light is telling you that there is a fault in your engine control system and the Trac Off light is telling you that there is a problem with your Antilock Brake/Traction Control system. Certain faults can cause engine damage or destroy your catalytic converters (high-dollar if you have to relace them). The reduced power indicator is telling you that the engine control module has gone into reduced power mode to protect your engine and catalytic converters from damage. If ANY of these lights are on while you are driving the vehicle there will be DTCs set. (I know you said that you tried to pull up codes and didn't get any...please read on...)

First, please note that what I said above is "computer NETWORK". There are several different computers or "modules" in your vehicle. They are all connected together and share data with each other. They actually share data from several sensors and inputs, but we are going to talk about your wheel speed sensor data for a minute.

The ABS/Traction Control system uses data from the wheel speed sensors to determine when a wheel is slipping or locking-up on slick roads. The ABS will use this data to relieve the brake pressure on the slipping wheel to get it rotating again for better control and stopping ability. At the same time, if the slipping is severe, the traction control activates and sends data to the engine control computer. The engine control computer can shut the fuel and ignition off to reduce the torque on the drive wheels in an effort to regain control. When this occurs under normal conditions with a slipping wheel, the TRAC light will illuminate for a few seconds and go back off when control has been achieved.

Here's the problem:
If the wheel speed sensor fails or is producing an erratic signal to the ABS module, it can actually cause continuous cylinder misfire due to the engine computer turning the injectors and ignition coils on and off and on and of get the picture.... Anyway, this type of operation can produce engine damage and wreck your converters....This is where the reduced power mode comes in.

When in reduced power mode, the engine will supply only a pre-determined amount of fuel and will limit the accelerator from working and will only allow the vehicle to be driven up to a set maximum speed. It takes "manual control" of the system so that you can still drive the vehicle to get it repaired. (You might want to take the back0roads when this happens because it will not accelerate very well and it is a good way to get run over.)

I hope I haven't bored you too much with the details. I told you all of that so you can understand this:

Your wheel speed sensors on your vehicle are built into the wheel bearing and hub assembly. I think you may have damaged your wheel bearing and/or wheel speed sensor when you bent your wheel.

This can be verified by scanning your computer system. Please note that if you are using a generic OBD2 code reader, you will NOT be able to access these codes. Generic OBD is only for emissions-related engine and transmission control faults. Where you are most likely to find the codes that will be needed to properly diagnose and repair your Pontiac will be located in the ABS/Traction Control module.

You will need a scan tool that has the ability to scan your entire network and display live data streams to verify the actual cause of the problem as well as to reset the memory in all of the affected modules after repairs are made.

2001 Pontiac aztek cruise control stopped working along with the ABS

Cruise control fuse # 31 10amp located in the under hood fuse / relay box an HZDFL fuse # 40 15amp located in the center console fuse box . If you pull the plastic side panel off of the right side of the console there is a fuse box inside . If the fuse are good the control module could be bad . Could also be turned off because the ABS has a problem .
DTC P1554 - do you know what a diagnostic trouble code is ?

The powertrain control module (PCM) has the ability to inhibit cruise control operation if conditions exist that would make cruise operation undesirable. The following conditions may inhibit cruise control operation:
• The engine speed is too high or too low.
• The vehicle speed is too high or too low.
• The traction control has been active for longer than 1 second.
• The vehicle acceleration or deceleration rate is too high

If the ABS light is on ,there are DTC'S stored in the system . Your best bet , take it to a GM dealer or someother qualified repair shop.

Going up a hill, traction and break lights comes on (service traction-break fluid) message on my screen, got to top of hill and slowed down, lights came off. 2008 pontiac g6

Make sure your brake fluid is at the correct level. Any issue with the brake system will cause the traction system to not work as traction control works by modulating the brake on the wheel (s) that are slipping. If fluid level is fine then the sensor for the fluid level may be bad.

Pontiac g6 cruise control does not work 95% of time

The most common issue here is the rotating contact under the steering wheel called the "Clockspring" has an open printed circuit ribbon. To change this requires the Airbag and steering wheel be taken off. You must disarm the steering wheel mounted Airbag before work starts, failure to do this can kill you. Read and follow the service manual instructions to the letter.

Own a 2005 G6 vt Pontiac and Cruise control suddenly stopped working. Is it a blown fuse?

Yes, most likely. Look for the fusebox under the hood and check the fuse. Whenever any electrical system stops abruptly, the fuse should be the first candidate for inspection. So, please do it.
