Question about 2001 Chevrolet Lumina

Cruise control not working on my Chevy Lumina 1998

Pushing the button or slider give no result. I checked the fuse and it appeared good. Traded it, none the less, with another of the same kind. Still nothing. Could I have a short in a wire leading to the cruise control levers?

Check the switch above the brake pedal. This is the switch the turns off the cruise when you hit the brakes. Make sure it is adjusted properly to allow the cruise to come on.

Testimonial: "Very helpful to learn about the switch. No problem with alignment. Rather, only in Park, depressing brake pedal there is a loud click each time."

check cruise control fuse and check the brake lights see if brake light working because the brake light switch will deactivate cruise control when brakes is applied.if brake lights dont work either fuse blowed or switch bad.if all is good have vechicle code scan because cruise control control by PCM and vechicle speed sensor and thottle actuator control motor.

The cruise control switch will not engage or set when pushing set button, but the green cruise light is on on the dash.

Check your fuse panels both inside, and outside the vehicle, as well as the connections to the cruise control.

My cruise control on my 2008 chevy pickup stopped working. The light on the streeing wheel is on and the fuse is good. Everyone says to check the switch on the brake pedal. How do I adjust the switch?

after reading every post on every forum about the cruise control, I decided to pull the brake switch off of the pedal and have a look. I read somewhere that there is a spring loaded mechanism inside the switch that goes bad and makes the cruise think the brake is engaged. Upon inspecting the switch I saw a flat white bar that the brake rod depresses that engages the mechanism inside the switch. So like I always do... I sprayed the white swtch bar with wd 40 and worked it with a screw driver by pushing it and realeasing it until I heard it make a solid sounding click as it engaged and disengaged. I reinstalled the brake switch and all is well. Seems a little dust has clabbered the lubricant and was causing it to stick. So all is good and my cheap @ss didnt spend a dime. Total time including research was 1.5 hours.
Hope this helps someone else

Don't have radio code for 1998 chevy lumina ltz. How do i get code?

Call the parts depts at your local chevy dealers. With a 12 year old car a nice parts guy will usually give you the code for free. Look up how to pull the radio code up on the internet (you have to hold down certain buttons on different theft-loc radios). Give the numbers to the parts guy and they will call in and get you the unlock code. Otherwise they charge you to get the number...good luck

How do you fix cruise control on 1993 chevy lumina i think it could be a fuse problem but i don't know where it might be

I had a '93 Lumina a few years back and when the cruise control went out, I found that the vacuum hose had deteriorated and there was no vacuum to run the actuator (left side, where the cable from the throttle body ends). I replaced the hose (50 cents) and it worked fine again.

92 chevy lumina dies when braking hard also the cruise control doesn't hold speed. Both of these happen only after 1/2 hour of driving

It sounds like a faulty check valve, it is located inline with the cruise control vacuum line or the vacuum brake booster vacuum supply line.

this would be a multifunction switch which turn signal switch wipers ect. run through located on steering column under plastic cover.assuming the brake light switch is good see if third brake light works when you press the pedal if so it is deffintly the multi switch.

Cruse controll

Pull up on the brake pedal. If that does not work check your brake light bulbs (LED brake lights will also keep your cruise control form working). Finally check all of the fuses. This system needs at least 3 different fuses to work properly.
