Today, I found a "Second Switch". The brake pedal has the switch for the ASCD and the brake lights (I knew this but thought it didn't matter because of my trouble shooting procedures mentioned above). I also never really looked for it as its behind the steering column (It's a tight fit under the dash!). Today, I looked at it. SURE ENOUGH, there's another rubber stopper that had broken out. I got another dime and taped it up...and BOOM! Cruise Control!

Is there a fuse for the cruise control?

Most cruise controls are vacuum actuated. check for vacuum leaks. This also occurs at the brake petal where cruise is disengaged, check for proper adjustment on the cruise switch.

2003 oldsmobile alero v6 -- cruise control stopped working...The cruise on/of button lights up, the green light cruise indicator comes on in the dash panel, but cruise control does not engage when CST SET...

Try checking the small switch at the top of the brake pedal. There may be two one for brake lights and one for the cruise control. To ascertain what is what, pull one wire off and see if brake lights work. If not, then the other switch controls the cruise control disconnect and engage..I you have a DC test light check to see if power is on on both side of the switch with brake pedal up. If so, depress pedal and check power on the other side there should be none, if there is the switch is defective.

The cruise control light comes on but it does not engage. It's a 1995 pathfinder.

If your light comes on but the cruise control does not engage you may have a vacuum leak some where. When you set your cruise control your vehicle uses vacuum to maintain speed and if you have a vacuum leak this can not happen. Try checking all of your vacuum lines. I hope this helps.

Cruise Control Issue

The most common solution is to replace the brake light switch . The switch has 3 sets of contacts one set is for the cruise control. If the cruise control part is at fault the cruise control will not engage. The switch typically costs from 10 to 15 dollars.
