SOURCE: Cruise Control

My Answer:

I've only seen Cruise Controls have 1 or possibly 2 wiring problems by design.

Usually the Cruise Control Servo Unit itself if pretty darn dependable, and will outlast most everything else on the SUV/car.

The most common problem is usually a BAD GROUND wire at the CC Servo Unit itself, which is located under the hood and usually where it's mounted off to the drivers side at or near the engine firewall, or else up front nearest the battery box.

The other wiring problem might be a bad connector or dirty connection point from where the wiring harness is run into and under the steering column. That connector can be seen from under the dash area and checked pretty easily with a DVM for proper function.

With either an automatic transmission or clutch driven model there is one other "safety disengage switch" located on either the clutch pedal or else the brake pedal, and this switch (if it's not positioned properly, or defective - as in OPEN) will kill the +12-volt battery POWER going to the CC Servo Unit itself. The CC light may be ON, but there still won't be any battery power to the CC Servo Unit, causing it not to set.

On all newer generation CC units the vehicle "angle" or attitude sensor, and drive shaft VCO pickup sensor design were dropped, and instead the monitored engine speed is now taken directly from the engine's Black Box computer and used as the VCO reference. If this VCO signal is missing then the CC Servo Unit will not engage as well.

If the CC Servo Unit uses a vacuum line feed you'll need to check that as well to make sure the hose is intact and it's making a good snug connection.

If all these points show to be good - then the CC Servo Unit itself is bad and needs to be replaced. Make sure you troubleshoot everything else above first as the CC Servo Unit is no doubt pretty pricey in cost, and may not be bad at all.

Hope this solves your problem.

SOURCE: cruise control light will not come on after truck

After the light goes out does it come back on while driving down the road?
If it does this sounds as if you may have a heat sensitive problem at the cruise motor. this has a sensoe that turns the light on when it is engaged. when you turn it off and sits a while does the heat under the hood goes higher expanding the circuts an open circut. You may have to replace the board in the motor.

2003 oldsmobile alero v6 -- cruise control stopped working...The cruise on/of button lights up, the green light cruise indicator comes on in the dash panel, but cruise control does not engage when CST SET...


Try checking the small switch at the top of the brake pedal. There may be two one for brake lights and one for the cruise control. To ascertain what is what, pull one wire off and see if brake lights work. If not, then the other switch controls the cruise control disconnect and engage..I you have a DC test light check to see if power is on on both side of the switch with brake pedal up. If so, depress pedal and check power on the other side there should be none, if there is the switch is defective.

My cruise control light comes on but won't engage


The reason any cruise control will not stay engaged is cause by 2 things.

1. Brake light switch. Check to see if your brake lights are coming on when your driving.... i.e have some one follow you while driving without the brake on.

or

2. Loss of speed sensor data to the control module. The speed sensor on an automatic transission car is located on somewhere the drive train / shaft. On a vehicle with a standard transmission the engine tach signal is used. (also unsed on automatic w/Over drive) If you do not see a tach reading on the instrument cluster I would suspect a tach sensor problem.

Troubleshooting needs to be in these 2 areas. As far as a source for schematics. Clymer and Haynes are 2 of many after market repair manuals.

Battery light on dash


The battery light is an indication of some kind of problem with the alternator, most likely a diode problem in the rectifier bridge, this changes AC current to DC current to supply power to the car and charge the battery.

The cruise problem is most likely the cruise control module is failing.

If you have more questions please contact me on this same thread.
