On/off button for cruise control quit working. Fuse is good, what else could be the problem?

Some of these cruise control devices rely on vacuum pressure from a small hose connected between the engine intake (vacuum source) and a cup-like vacuum enclosure and diaphragm with a connection to hold / adjust the throttle position to maintain vehicle speed. A cracked hose is all that is needed to cause the system to fail. This is especially true if your have a newer car and the "check engine" or "service engine soon" light is on.

The cruise control in my 1989 305 v-8 pontiac firebird doesn't stay engaged. it will hold cruise , but after a few miles , it disengages.

The older vehicles used vacuum to control the Cruise. Check for a leak in the vacuum system. Using a can of starting fluid, spray the vacuum lines and fittings lightly. If the engine revs up after a spray, it'e most likely the leak.

My cruise control will not maintain a stady speed

Cruise controls use Vacuum from the engine inlet manifold to operate the throttle linkage when cruising is engaged. If the hose that supplies the vacuum is not tight on the connections at either end, due to getting hard and/or splitting, the unit will not have enough vacuum to operate the linkage or in your case not maintain set speed. Check the hose that supplies vacuum to the cruise control, as well as all the hoses used for pollution control where they attach to the various pipes in the engine bay, for poor connections. They should be tight, not hard or split and not be able to be removed easily.

My cruise controll has stopped working and my dashboard lights have stopped working also. All of my idiot lights work including the turn signals. I just cant see the speed at night! Please help

The Dashboard light dimmer control is probably stopped working because one of the tiny eletronic bits inside it has died. A temporary fix is to remove the connecting plug on the rear of the unit and put a bridging wire across the terminals. The cruise control problem could have several causes. They operate on engine vacuum so check the hose going to the cruise control unit in the engin bay from the inlet manifold. If the hose is cracked or hard there will not be enough vacuum to operate the cruise control.

1994 jaguar xjs 4.0----need to know where the vacumm line that feeds vac to cruise control eminates from--yea i know, from the engine----but where ,specifically, on the engine ?????

On my 90 and 92, I have a vacuum line from the driver side intake manifold at about inline with the # cylinder. It travels to the firewall between engine and firewall to a connection underneath the battery.That line goes through the firewall and connects to other lines roughly above your feet if you are sitting in the passenger side of the car.

My 2004 jetta cruise control is not working. I have changed both the brake switch and the clutch switch and I checked all the fuses. What else could it be?

Engine vacuum does the work for most cruises. Check the vacuum hose that goes to the cruise control servo and ensure it has no cracks and is connected well. Also check the hose that connects up under your air filter.

I have a 2001 ford escape and the cruise control does not work the indicator light comes on but it will not set

I had the exact same problem on my 2002 Escape. If you remove the engine cover (3 bolts), you will see where the cruise control links to the the throttle body. If your problem is the same as mine, you will see that it is not connected. I believe it is intended to snap on, but it just doesn't stay. I temporarily snapped it in and wrapped electrical tape to prevent it from unsnapping. Worked like a charm.
Hope this helps.

2003 jeep grand cherokee cruise control not working.

Ok, the '03 Jeep Grand Cherokee uses a small vacuum line to control the servos. Since your light comes on, it's obviously getting power. 9 out of 10 times it's the vacuum hose.
Pop the hood and look on the passenger side towards the back for the engine coolant reservoir. It's most likely underneath it so you may have to remove the res. Check the vacuum hose and all vac. connections then check the electrical connections. If that's not the problem, check the cruise control connection to the throttle linkage.
If that still doesn't do it, you may need use scan tools and diagnostic procedures that are out of the scope of home mechanics.
Wish ya luck!

I have a 1997 cherokee country 6 cyl. 4.0L, and my cruise control will not work I dont know what it is?

Cruise control works from engine vacuum. Check for leaks where vacuum hoses connect to inlet manifold and vacuum canister behind front bumper for damage or leaks.
