Check to see if brake lights are on all the time. If not check adjustment of brake light switch on brake pedal.

Keep blowing cruise control fuse on 2009 silverado Z71


You'll probably need a shop manual to find out what is protected by that fuse. Could be a component or a problem in the wiring harness.

Cruise control on 1996 Chevy Silverado won't hold speed


Possibly a broken wire in the steering column. Wires goint through the steering column for the cruise are so fragile when the tilt is used alot causing the wires to brake. Part is $70.00 through advance auto. Cheapest I've found if you order online.

Cruise control not engaging


Hi there,

As you have not stated the Model of Chev, nor the Year of Manufacture, I will give you some general possibilities:

* Blown fuse
* Short or open in Cruise Control circuit
* Faulty brake switch
* Leaking vaccuum circuit
* Faulty cruise control switch
* Faulty stepper motor
* Faulty transducer
* Faulty speed sensor
* Faulty cruise control module

As with all electrical circuits, you should first check the FUSE.

However, from experience, the most common cause of inoperative Cruise control are:

Brake pedal switch: check that tail lights illuminate when depressing the brake pedal. If not, then replace the brake pedal switch (located up on the brake pedal assembly).

Brake pressure switch: depending on which model Chev you have, there is an electrical switch (look for wires) screwed into the brake cylinder (attached to the brake booster). This switch is a cruise system backup from the pedal switch and measures brake fluid pressure, to disengage the cruise control. When this switch fails, the Cruise Control will not engage. If you have a multimetre, you can test the resistance on the switch terminals (ask Chev for the correct resistance spec) - if not to specification, then replace the switch.

Cruise control release valve: this is the alternative to the brake pressure switch and is also mounted on the brake pedal, above the brake switch. This switch is designed to disengage the cruise control, just like the pressure switch. If you have a multimetre, you can test the spec of this switch (ask Chev for the correct test procedure & specs) - if not to specification, then replace the switch.


NOTE: depending on the year of your vehicle, your local Chev Dealership will be able extract the Cruise Control fault codes, stored in the Cruise Control Computer. This is always the fastest (and cheapest) way to identify the suspected component and will eliminate unnecessary "trial and error" labor costs. This test cannot be done by your typical garage and must be entrusted to your Chev approved service agent only, who will have the correct Scan Tool.

Popping noise in front drivers side of 1998 chevy Z71 in reverse


Look at where the torsion bars go through the control arm and get someone to move the vehicle back and forth and see if they are moving. This is most likely. Let me know what you find.

03 chevy z71 cruise contol problem


There are a few things you can try. First, check your
brake lights, if they do not work the problem may be
in the stoplight sw circuit. Also there are 3 fuses you
can check, 1 is a 25amp in the fuse block under the
hood the next 2 are in the fuse block under the dash.
One is the 15amp stoplight fuse and the other is a
10amp turn sig fuse. These fuses are either directly
or indirectly related to the cruise ctrl. Next check the
cruise switchs accel/coast set/resume if either sw.
was sticking in any posistion for 90 seconds or more,
the cruise ctrl. will shut down. There are trouble codes that will set but they won't trip the check engine light. You'll need an obdII scanner to recover
them from the memory. If you don't have one, go to
autozone/napa or advance auto parts they will scan it
free. The codes of interest are po571 stoplight switch
po567 and po568 the cruise ctrl switch's. And any
other codes related to the torque converter clutch -
the speed sensor - throttle actuator control.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
