Installation of cruise for Pontiac G5

I want to install a cruise control for a Pontiac G5, but I was told that I needed a code to get the computer to recognize the Cruise Control. What would be the code?

    Yes, but the dealer I went to couldn't get the codes from Pontiac. So he didn't put in the cruise. Where can I find the codes to tell the dealer what they are?

    Its not a code thing, its a setup thing. The BCM needs to be set up through the Tech2 scanner, not the Service Programming System.

    Your dealer should take your VIN code and get the meaning of the RPO codes through their VIS program. Then they would know what the BCM needs to be set up with. At that point they would add the cruise control.

    Print this and bring it to a dealer they will know what I mean.

My cruise control just stopped working on my 2005 Pontiac G6

Cruise Control on your vehicle is computer controlled , having the vehicle checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes should be the first step in diagnosing this problem . Not a code reader or autozone etc... Would need a factory Tech 2 scanner or someother professional type , one that can read BCM - body control module codes .
Cruise control is a speed control system that maintains a desired vehicle speed under normal driving conditions at speeds above 40 km/h (25 mph). Steep grades may cause variations in the selected vehicle speeds.
The following are the main components of the Cruise Control System:
• The accelerator pedal
• The brake pedal position (BPP) sensor
• The body control module (BCM)
• The cruise control on/off switch
• The powertrain control module (PCM)
• The + RES switch
The + RES switch is the equivalent to an accel/resume switch.
• The - SET switch
The - SET switch is the equivalent to a set/coast switch.
• The throttle actuator control (TAC) module
• The TAC motor
• The vehicle speed sensor (VSS)

Cruise control doesn't work in 2010 pontiac g5

Tricky. If you're unfamiliar with the operation of GM cruise control systems, refer to a qualified GM technician.
Things you can try:
  1. Lubricate the actuator switch;
  2. Lubricate the brake switch (yes, the brake switch is in the circuit);
  3. Lubricate all actuator switches for the cruise control system at the steering wheel;
  4. Check for vacuum leaks, damaged vacuum lines, or other visible problems around the cruise control servo (under the hood).
  5. If your vehicle is equipped with a TRIP COMPUTER, and the trip computer is not updating mileage, replace the SPEED SENSOR.

Cruise control not working when it was it seammed to make the motor run very ruff when i disengaged it by using brake pedal

If the cruise control makes the engine seem to run very rough until disengaging it, there could be a problem with the engine itself. As, most cruise control systems just pull on the throttle cable to maintain speed on the highway based on setting the speed with the button.

So, I would look into the engine maybe having an issue with spark plugs, or wires, or another tuneup or mechanical issue.

Cruise Control Cable Removal & Installation To Remove:

  1. Before servicing the vehicle refer to the precautions at the beginning of this section.
  2. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • The cable from the throttle lever and the accelerator control cable bracket gm_mv_ven_cruisecable.gif

    • The cable from the module by rotating the cable counter clockwise at the module
    • The cable from the module band
To Install:
NOTE: Ensure that the module strap is not twisted during cable installation
  1. Install or connect the following:
    • The cable to the module band
    • The cable to the module
    • The cable to the throttle lever and the accelerator control cable bracket
  2. Adjust the cruise control cable.

The onboard computer has detected a problem.

If still under warranty (emission related, up to 50K by government mandate), take to dealer. If not sure, take it to autozone or other auto parts store and have them hookup computer and printout the error code.

NOTE: If fuel cap is not on tight, it will set an error code. Can take several days to reset after correcting the gas cap.

I want to add cruise control to a 2009 Pontiac G5 with the manual transmission. My dealer wants to add an aftermarket unit that fastens to the side of steering wheel. Do I have to settle for this or can...

you will require a new steering wheel.
and it is almost $500 from the dealer.
It will look like this...

The aftermarket one does not stick off the handgrips of the steering wheel - it is on the bottom Hub area.

The aftermarket uses a wireless transponder and the brain is hard-wired into the ECU (computer)

Im not sure that your vehicle has the existing wires in the harness to facilitate adding a cruise in the steering wheel without replacing the entire steering column... or wiring harness.

Im sure with the right amount of $$ it can be done - but the aftermarket one is the least invasive and cheapest route for you.

All the cars... cobalt, g5, g6, g7 etc... have the cruise control built in the ECU, and it simply needs to be turned on using the GM Tech Tool Candi II. Its the part about switching it on and off that the costs are involved.

Go with the aftermarket - its really not that bad!

Cruise control installation

Not really sure on parts pricing (probably very expensive) but very complicated and work intensive to install... Need to get the engine computer reprogrammed for cruise control, install all the wiring (to the brake light switch, the speed sensors, etc...) install the servo/vacuum motor and cables to the throttle assembly...
