SOURCE: Cruise Control

My Answer:

I've only seen Cruise Controls have 1 or possibly 2 wiring problems by design.

Usually the Cruise Control Servo Unit itself if pretty darn dependable, and will outlast most everything else on the SUV/car.

The most common problem is usually a BAD GROUND wire at the CC Servo Unit itself, which is located under the hood and usually where it's mounted off to the drivers side at or near the engine firewall, or else up front nearest the battery box.

The other wiring problem might be a bad connector or dirty connection point from where the wiring harness is run into and under the steering column. That connector can be seen from under the dash area and checked pretty easily with a DVM for proper function.

With either an automatic transmission or clutch driven model there is one other "safety disengage switch" located on either the clutch pedal or else the brake pedal, and this switch (if it's not positioned properly, or defective - as in OPEN) will kill the +12-volt battery POWER going to the CC Servo Unit itself. The CC light may be ON, but there still won't be any battery power to the CC Servo Unit, causing it not to set.

On all newer generation CC units the vehicle "angle" or attitude sensor, and drive shaft VCO pickup sensor design were dropped, and instead the monitored engine speed is now taken directly from the engine's Black Box computer and used as the VCO reference. If this VCO signal is missing then the CC Servo Unit will not engage as well.

If the CC Servo Unit uses a vacuum line feed you'll need to check that as well to make sure the hose is intact and it's making a good snug connection.

If all these points show to be good - then the CC Servo Unit itself is bad and needs to be replaced. Make sure you troubleshoot everything else above first as the CC Servo Unit is no doubt pretty pricey in cost, and may not be bad at all.

Hope this solves your problem.

No the exterior lighting is an independent system and not related. Just replace the light and you should be good as far as the backup light goes.

How do you activate the cruise control on a Mercedes ML 270 cdi.


If you know how to set your speed limiter. To set your cruise control, press the stalk in (to the right). The orange light on your dash should go out and you're ready to set your cruise control. You can start the cruise control by either moving the cruise control stalk up or down. Once you start the cruise control you can move the stalk up or down to increase or decrease your cruise speed. You can move it toward you to shut off the cruise control. You can press it in again to go back to the speed limiter. I hope this helps.

2003 Lincoln ls v-8 cruise control won't engage. Light won't come on or anything when I hit the button. Everything else work fine.


My 2001 Lincoln ls cruise control will not work. Put in a new clockspring and that did not fix it. radio controls and horn work but the air bag light stays on continually after starting. The lights on the cruise side will go on an off -I have bought that part to replace but don't want to put on if that is not the problem.

My criuse control dash button lights up but the cruise control doesnt work


With the light coming on as if it's working it is likly to be working it's just come disconnected some way. Most of the time the cable from the cruise unit to the throttle body comes off or the cable is broken ( less likly). There's likly three cables connected to the throttle body, ( the thing thats mounted to the engine that the air inlet hose connects to that is coming from the air cleaner box) One will be the gas pedal and right next to it is the cruse and on a different angle theirs a cable that connects to the transmission. With thte car shut off you can watch the cables and touch them as someone steps on the gas pedal and makes them move the one that tightens up is the pedal and so the other that pulls the same way is the cruse. If you've never seen it work it might be because major work has been done some time or other and the mechanics did'nt hook the cable back up, or a previous owner did'nt want it to work and had it disconnected. If you find it unhooked and you don't know why. be careful as you first try to use it as it might be disconnected because it does something wrong. ( go faster and faster, or won't shut off). Most will stop if you turn off the key but until your shure it works OK do'nt use it any where that turning the car off and pulling to the side of the road is easy. ( in other words be ready for it to do something wrong). Once you figure out why it's been disconnected, tell me what it did and i'll trey to tell yu how to fix it. I need the engine size and the country the car was bought new In to help you alot.

2004 Ford Freestar cruise control not working


Try pulling up the brake pedal with your foot,Sometimes your brake doesnt come back all the way,and the brake switch keeps the cruise from working.Also,check the fuse.If those answers dont help,It could be the swith itself is bad.Those can be bought at a parts store.

"Cruise" on a 5-speed '00 Hyundai Elantra


I have this same car. The place you set speed control is on the windshield wiper switch on the right side of the steering column. The button with the indicator light has to be pushed in order to use the cruise control but just because the indicator light is on, it does not mean the cruise is on. Hope this helps a little. If you need more info and someone else doesn't answer more eloquently.. I'll check back and try to give you more info. :-)

Cruise control Turns off intermittantly


You're probably not gonna like this answer, but hwen it comes to electrical problems, you really do need to take it to a garage/mechainc that you trust.

I know I couldn't talk you through what you need to do to fix it, especailly with the Jeep not right in front of me.

If you bought the Jeep from a dealer, take it back there right now, and tell them the cruise troubles you're having...most dealers will fix the problem even on aused car because they want the good news to travel that they took care of you.......they don't want anyone walking around with bad things to say about them.

Good Luck, let us know what ahppens, okay?

Cruise control stopped working in my 2004 Hyundai Sonata


This works...the cruise is directly tied to the brake lights...when I replaced the brake and side light bulbs on my 2004 Santa Fe,,,the cruise started working with no other adjustments. It must complete a circuit or something.

Cruise Control Problems


Possibly a fuse if you haven't checked, My MAX a/c switch wouldn't light up or work so I looked at the fuses and the wrong fuse was in the blower and cig lighter so I changed them and the a/c is working perfectly so check to make sure the fuses are the correct ones or they possibly wont work!!!
