problems with cruise control include , clutch switch, brake switch , low road speed , control module , speedo sender unit
make sure that all those items are adjusted as one one will stop the cruise control from engaging
check the light switch on the stalk. Also check the relay it will be under the bonnet . Voltage should be supplied t0 the relay when light switch turned on and then relay should click on and voltage 12 v should be switched to the headlight from the switched relay contacts. Suspect worn light switch . You could run a wire from 12v to contact on relay that powers the coil on the relay to prove if relay works and switch is cause of your problem
check all your fuses first then take a look at the brake switch and there is a criuse cancel switch also, i think there may be a problem with the switch,even if the cancel switch was bad i think the power would still stay on but cruise would just stop and power would stay on. check fuses and switches anyway to be sure then take a look at the power switch.
I had the same problem. When I tried to engage the cruise control, the cruse control light flashed and the cruise control did not work. I also noticed that this happens more often when the outside temperatures are low (below 5 deg. C). The problem was in the brake switch. The switch is positioned at the brake pedal. On Accord 2003 it can be very easily removed by anti-clockwise rotation of the switch. You can replace the switch with a new one or you can clean the contacts of the old one, since the switch can be dismantled very easily.
In response to the request from "emissionwiz" for more clarification of the problem:
This same 1995 Honda Accord was stolen in Atlanta, GA in 2006 and trashed. It was recovered the next day and held 4 days before I got postcard in mail to come pick it up. The battery was dead and the gas tank empty and lots of damage. The insurance made it right including putting a new battery. Two years later, a month before the replacement battery warranty ran out, the battery went dead. The dealer, Nalley Honda replaced the dead battery to satisfy the battery warranty free of charge. Never having had Cruise Control problems before, the Cruise Control failed within minutes after leaving the dealer, Nalley Honda. The Cruise Control only works to maintain speed approximately 20% of the time after the battery swap. What could have been damaged and caused the Cruise Control to fail intermittently ? I can not just ignore this problem because I need the Cruise Control. The digital multimeter I use might be of some help locating the trouble. Maybe you could point me in the right direction so I can hem this in. I read specifications if a wiring diagram is available. As stated before, all indications from the instrument panel tell me the Cruise Control is ON.
Yes, it probably is the brake switch. It must be working properly for the cruise control to work. If the part you got did not come from a car with cruise control, it will only have two electrical posts and not the four that you need.
If it is the right part, it must be turned in until the button is pushed completely, but not so far that it begins to actuate the master cylinder. Please report your results.
