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.

When I turn on cruise control the light turns on but doesn't keep speed


The light tells you that the electrics to the light are working - but cruise control in many cars relies on vacuum hoses and other mechanical and electro-mechanical components to work.

Additionally, if you have a brake or clutch issue - sensor in those sub-assembly circuits would automatically disengage the cruise control speed setting - but could leave the cruise indicator on.

Is the map sensor the same thing as the knock sensor on a 1999 daewoo nubira and exactly where is it located

Not the same-the map sensor tells the computer how much air is in the intake to compute fuel requirements-map means manifold absolute pressure-look for it on the firewall or attached to engine-small black box with vacuum hoses, or at least one vacuum hose to it coming from the intake plenum.
The knock sensor is located on the engine block somewhere, maybe under the intake, it is for detecting engine "pinging"-or engine knock, the timing will be retarded a scheduled amount if any cylinders exhibit knock.

Hi i have a 2006 56 plate subary legacy saloon 3.0 R B Spec only covered 25,000 miles from new and the EML light has come on due to the knock sensor throwing a fault, also the Cruise control light is...

Hi Lee,
I'm not sure if the programming in that particular vehicle will disable traction control and/or cause the cruise control light to flash because of a faulty knock sensor. There is no way for a repair technician to know all the factors behind the software in your system. You MAY have separate problems with the cruise - then maybe not.

The only thing I can tell you for sure is that Subaru knock sensors are prone to failure due to cracking. The outer shell gets cracks in it and then moisture gets in and corrodes the field windings inside the sensor shorting them out. (SEE PICTURE)

"Reflashing" your computer or resetting the codes will not work if this is the case. You will have to replace the knock sensor FIRST, then reset the computer memory.

1998 Dodge Ram 1500 2wd cruise control quit working. Cruise light still comes on but nothing happens. I can not locate any fuses for cruise control can anyone tell me where the fuse would be?

In the front, there should be a bulbous looking device - this is the vacuum chamber for the cruise. Check to make sure the vacuum hose did not slip off. That was the problem on my van.
