    Thanks! I'll check that. Will the brake switch (or if it's faulty) cause trouble shifting from park or back into park? or is that a transmission issue?

SOURCE: Cruise control can not set speed but cruise ctl light is on

Sometimes the plastic cog on the side of the throttle body (TB) breaks. This cog is "pulled" by the cruise control accuator's cable.
To check, simply look on the side of the TB and check to see of the cable end has broken free. (The mechanisim is much like the brake cable on a bike)

SOURCE: 2004 acura Tl cruise control wont engage

This is a problem you will to take to a shop, If you are mechanically inclined I can help you, but if not I would not mess with it, it could be the button or it could be the controller and could even just be a fuse, check the fuse and if you don't find the fuse blown then let me know if you have a volt meter and what to test this yourself. You are going to be working around the air bag too and if you probe the wrong wire while testing you could break your arm or leg by deploying the air bag by accident. Or your neck.

Intermittent Cruise Control Issue - cuts out when small bump in road is hit and may or may not re-engage after that.


Check the wire connector that plugs into the cruise control under the hood. Sounds like a loose connection. Remove the and reinsert the wire connector several times to make a better connection. Stepping on the brake pedal disengages the cruise control by a switch on the brake pedal, not the computer.

My cruise control just stopped working. Is there a faulty fuse, relay, switch I could check myself...?


In that vehicle, the usual culprit is a leaking vacuum line. Also, check the operation of the brake pedal cancel switch by pulling upward on the brake pedal with the toe of your shoe while attempting to engage the cruise control. If the cruise control engages, adjust the cancel switch.

I have a 1998 Acura 3.0 cl and the brake lights are not working even after replacing a few bulbs that were blown. The cruise control is not working as well.


Check all fuses first. If they are good, go under dash and check brake switch. Remove electrical connector, Attach ohmmeter to both terminals. Should have infinite resistance. Depress plunger. Should have no resistance. If you have trouble with the meter, buy one that beeps when there is continuity

Continuosly alarm going off.


If its an aftermarket alarm check the manual to adjust the sensor sensitivity. If you don't have the manual check the alarm's manufacture website or contact them. Some times the shock sensor is in the antenna itself. There'll be a button saying something like, HI, MID, LOW. Set the sensitivity to MID or medium sensitivity.

Try pulling the brake pedal up with your toe and setting the cruise control while you hold it up with your toe. If it engages, stop holding the brake pedal up. It will either disengage immediately or after you hit a bump. Or if you step on the brake, of course.

There's a brake pedal sensor button on the steering column right where the brake pedal arm intersects it. I put a self]adhesive felt pad (buy at wal-mart, home depot, etc) on the pedal arm where it makes contact with the sensor button. Fixed. Been working fine for a year now.

Cruise control quit working. Is there a fuse somewhere that I can check. None of the fuse box locations have a cruise control label


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.
