There is an orange wire that runs from you ignition switch. It runs into the back of you IP fuse box by your gas pedal side. Follow this wire and reach your hand back there and press on that wire. If anything starts to work,press that wire back into place, then take a very small finishing nail (a very small one) and take a long pair of needle nose pliers and press it in beside of that connector being careful not to damage it. This harness is so close to your leg on the side of the gas feed that often times you hit it with your foot working that wire loose.Just putting it back into place may work for a while, but if the problem continues, the little nail is the trick!

    I think your service enging light may not be related to the A/C Power windows, and cruise...run a code through Autozone on that to be sure.

With all of those things going out at the same time it is very possible that you have a bad ground that is effecting multiple accessories. It could be a chassis ground or a ground at the computer itself.

How do I troubleshoot the cruise control of a 2003 Alero?


It's probably a problem with cruise control module , located under the hood in engine compartment . Or a bad connection somewhere . Do you know how to do electrical testing ? Is the air bag light lit on the instrument cluster ?

Could have DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's stored .
DTC P1554
The powertrain control module (PCM) inhibits cruise control operation when certain conditions are not appropriate for cruise control operation. The PCM removes the ground from the cruise control inhibit signal circuit in order to disengage cruise control operation.
DTC P1585
Output driver modules (ODMs) are used by the powertrain control module (PCM) in order to turn on many of the current driven devices that are needed to control various engine and transaxle functions. DTC P1558 set indicates that an improper voltage level has been detected on the signal circuit which controls the cruise control inhibit circuit.
Action Taken When the DTC Sets
• The PCM will not illuminate the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL).
• The PCM will store the conditions present when the DTC set as Failure Records data only.

Cruise control is a speed control system that maintains a desired vehicle speed under normal driving conditions. However, steep grades may cause variations in the selected speeds. The electronic cruise control system has the capability to CRUISE, COAST, RESUME SPEED, ACCELERATE, and TAP-UP or TAP-DOWN.
The main parts of the cruise control system are:
• The cruise control module assembly
• The function control switches
• The cruise control release switch
• The clutch pedal position switch (CPP), if equipped
• The stop lamp switch assembly
• The vehicle speed sensor
The cruise control system uses the cruise control module assembly to maintain the desired vehicle cruise speed and operation. The cruise control module assembly has an electronic controller and an electric stepper motor to vary the throttle in each different cruise control mode. The electric controller monitors vehicle speed and operates the electric stepper motor. The stepper motor operates in response to the electronic controller, to maintain the desired cruise speed. The electric stepper motor moves a strap that is attached to the cruise control cable which moves the throttle linkage. The cruise control module assembly contains a low speed limit which will prevent system engagement below a minimum speed of 40 km/h (25 mph). The module assembly is not serviceable.

Whats wrong with my jaguar x-type 2003 after i start the car then drive off the amber light says cruise control not working,, then it also stall's or hessitates when trying to excellerate or pass another...


I have exactly the same problem on mine-you explained perfectly,i was told i need to change the cruise control computer.I recently had the thermostat changed and the mechanic wiped the engine sign off that was triggered by the cruise control not available sign coming on-when he did this it took about a month for the problem to recur so i think the probelm is definately electrical not mechanical or it would have happened straight after he wiped the engine sensor light.could be air mass sensor could be cruise control computer-when i get some money i'll get it done

The compass and cruise control first started to work only intermittently and now dont work at all. Now the fan for the heating and air cond also stopped working


Look for a fuse for the Cruise Control and compass.
Also, the fan for the heating and air conditioning usually wears out (brushes get worn out) and possibly requires a relay as well to make it work reliably.
I don't think the two conditions Cruise Control vs. the Ventilation Fan are related.

My cruise control will suddenly stop working and the cruise light


I had a similar problem and it turned out to be the brake fluid level. This may be an answer. Also have you had the brakes checked. The cruise control is integrated with the brakes. Any little thing wrong with them effects the cruise.
