2009 silverado: when I turn my turn signal on it kicks my cruise control off. When I turn my headlights on it also kicked the cruise control off. Slow to start sometimes like the battery is dead but it's a new battery. Had advance check the alternator, starter, and battery and they were all fine. Someone please help!

If your car is under 36000 miles take it to your dealer and have it fixed under your warrenty. All of your interior electrical systems are controled by computors and sometime not a simple repair ! The dealer has the tools to monitor different switch states to aid in isolating the problem. Just guessing if its a switch or a computor or a wiring issue can get very costly.

SOURCE: 83 Chevy Silverado 454, New Battery & Starter- Won't Start?

first check if fuel is getting into the throttle body...take the air cleaner off and have someone press the accelerator while you watch for fuel to squirt into the throat. if there is no fuel then look at fuel delivery problems. If you do have good fuel flow then take out a spark plug and examine it for fouling or possible flooding. If it isn't then proceed to check for a spark. put the spark plug into the spark plug wire but NOT in the engine. with gloves on and wire and YOU are away from moving engine parts and belts and away from the area where you removed to spark plug. Place the top part of the spark plug and make it contact a solid metal part that has a good contact to the allow for a return path for the spark. you can hold the wire far from the spark plug to avoid a shock. have an associate start the truck and make sure its producing a nice white or blue sparks are weak and no sparks is of course ignition issues. hopefully this will help with moving on with troubleshooting. we would need more info to move on or spend a month listing all the possibilities. :-)

Sounds like your security system is preventing it from starting. Try locking and unlocking the doors with the key to override it. Also check your owners manual on security.

2009 Chevy Silverado 1500 cruse stoped working but light is still on.

This is very complex , first thing is have the vehicle checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the BCM , PCM !
The body control module (BCM) monitors the signal circuit of the cruise control switches. The BCM relays the cruise control switch status to the engine control module (ECM) via the GMLAN serial data circuit. The ECM uses the status of the cruise control switch to determine when to capture and maintain the vehicle speed. The ECM monitors the vehicle speed signal circuit in order to determine the desired vehicle speed. The ECM uses the throttle actuator control (TAC) motor in order to maintain the vehicle speed. For further information on the TAC System, refer to Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) System Descriptionfor the 4.3L engine or Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) System Description for the 4.8L, 5.3L, 6.0L, 6.2L or 7.0L engines.
Your best bet would be to take to the dealer !

Keep blowing cruise control fuse on 2009 silverado Z71

You'll probably need a shop manual to find out what is protected by that fuse. Could be a component or a problem in the wiring harness.

Fix cruise control on my 2009 Chevy tahoe

Most common failure (other than fuse) is the switch at the brake pedal which kicks it out of cruise. Switch must be in correct position and adjusted such that it is depressed fully when brake pedal is up.

My cruise control was working then while cruising I would use the turn signal and thecruise would kick off eventually it quit working at all.I looked in my Haynes book but could not find anything on the...

Good chance that the controller on your turn signal has gone bad since you started having cruise control issues when you used it to activate your turn signal. You can pick one up at Auto Zone and they will have the step by step instructions for you to replace the turn signal arm with the cruise control switch. it takes about 30 min to replace with common tools.
Thank you for using Fixya and good luck
