RAV 4 2004 cruise control not working- checked fuses & brake & clutch switch operation- ok

my guess, NO SCAN TOOL?

you can't fix car with out, a (drum roll) SCAN TOOL

the modern car also cuts cruise for many reasons.

(death) reason and #2, billion dollar class action suits. (read news?)

so they now cut the cruise for lots of engine failures and trans.

no scanning the PCM now, you lose.

2004 RAV 4 no engine stated.

if it has TBW (throttle by wire ) that too, cuts CRUISE big time if iffy

yes,DTCs for TBW or limphome of any kind !!!

what engine, we cant fix engine issues, with out that.

only about 10% here post that. so most answer are wrong.

imagine with body shells missing , see that < what is it,its a drive train. what is yours? engine and trans. what?


Check engine light on runnning

Scan tool shows, DTC errors. BINGO.

scan tool show stuck on limphome?

Throttle or idle errors of any kind?

there is no cruise module on ours USA>

The PCM mimics that in pure software (fact)

so if the PCM is unhappy, it does in fact cut cruise.

no scan tool makes all this IMPOSSIBLE on all newer cars !!!!

see PCM see throttle motor, bingo its cruise TOO.

My 2004 chevy trailblazer is missing badly. Had them read the code for me at auto zone and it said I had a miss fire on the number one cylinder. I changed the plugs and it is still missing badly

Try moving the coil pack from cylinder 1 to another cylinder (swap locations) and see if the same code comes up. If code is different, then coil pack is bad. Other reasons for miss; bad injector, poor compression.
Also, I know you changed plugs already, but always use AC Delco 43-103 plugs on this vehicle.

The ac fan comes on but does not stay on cuts off and comes on for no reason

Other than an electrical problem, there are only a few ways this could occur. When the heater control is on the defrost setting your a/c can cycle off & on randomly. Also, some a/c systems are designed to kick-on for a few seconds upon starting to keep the seals lubricated especially during the off season months. If it bothers you that it kicks on, you can unplug the compressor electrical connection & the a/c fan control connector, but, you could suffer the loss of your system if the seals dry out from not being used frequently. good luck

Were is the cooling Temp Sensor located on a 2004 vw beetle and is there anything special about replacing it. I have a P2181 code and that is the problem.

that code is for cooling system performance. which probably means you need to replace the thermostat. you can get free repair guides on for this vehicle that will tell you where the sensor is
