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?

Take it , it does not set . ? only sets when driving over about 35.
turned on light indicates on in cluster OK.. but will not set, right.??
Dealers go nuts with this one. give them a try.
brake switch on brake peddle arm often fail and go out of ajustment.
Next is big money unit under the hood. Cheaper to bye after market system..
check brake peddle cut out .switch .
sw has 2 functions: brake lights off when at rest and on for crusie. remove connector. check out the switch.. the sw tabs often fail. tierap helps. or replace switch $ 20. item any local parts store.
ajusted on install.
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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.
