Hi, it sounds like you have a faulty pedal switch or the switch needs adjusting, on the brake and clutch pedal there are small switches that turn the cruse control off when the pedals are used, hope this helps

SOURCE: 98 chevy k1500 cruse control

Hi,

Appreciate the "Ask Me".

To my knowledge, Cruise Control would be relatively difficult to diagnose without a scan tool attached to the control module to read the error codes. Additionally, car versions in my country seldom have such a device since our roads are narrower and travel distance is not that great.

Though most known causes are:

  • the connector to the module;
  • loose brake pedal/switch;
  • loose clutch pedal/switch (for manual transmission);
  • vacuum line to actuator (most likely), vacuum actuator, diaphragm, control valve.
Other possible components to check are:
  • the control module itself (bolted to the firewall);
  • control cable or linkage;
  • speedometer sensor;
  • steering wheel controls switches;
  • throttle position sensor.
As posted above, quite a number of possibilities. Any other indications, speedometer OK; abnormal throttle responses; abnormal idling, brake light always ON, slack in the accelerator/gas pedal? Was it cutting in/out before? Was there any recent repair work done on the engine before the cruise control cut out?

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: cruse controll

I thought that my cruise control was not working also. But, I just wasn't setting it up right.

Try this:
1.Press the cruise control button make sure the light is green.

2.Accelerate to the speed that you want to cruise on.

3.Once you are at the speed you want to go, select the Set Accelerator button on the steering wheel. Your cruise control should work, if not I'm not sure what the problem could be.

GOOD LUCK!

SOURCE: the horn and cruse control don't work

I had the same exact thing happen to me, I found out that there was a recall on the clock spring that I never received a notice for, the repair was made for free through dodge.

SOURCE: auto has 23K and cruse stopped working. checked

I had the same problem with my 2003 santa fe. Do you have any brake lights out in back? Weird as it is, as soon as I fixed a burned out brake bulb, my cruise worked again. The only relation I can think of is that tapping the breaks causes cruise to turn off - so maybe a broken brake/tail light passes a singal to cruise control from some reason???

Horn doesnt work after re-pack of airbag


The horn, cruse control and air bag each get power from the clock spring and each have a wire plugged no to it. The horn wire is probably not connected. When the clock spring breaks the horn and cruse control stop working and the air bag light stays on.

2001 impreza Abs light on and cruise control not working


From what I have read the flashing cruse light is to get you to fix the problem. Any cel will throw the cruse light and cruse will not work. Get your abs checked out and cruse will work again when fixed.

Speedometer, odometer, cruse control & tranny overstopped working


If it has antilock brakes, the sensor is on the top of the rear differential. This sensor usually drives the speedometer. check the sensor for an open in its windings and also the wire that connects to it for any breaks.
