You might try removing the battery connectors for five minutes and replacing back.

If the codes do not disappear, please you might have to get a scanner to do that.

Cheers.

SOURCE: cruise control light failure

Your light bulb is burned out. You will have to take the dash apart to get to it. You can check to see if it come on by taking your key from off to the run postion, all the lights should come on for a second or two and then go off with the exception of a few. If it does not come on then, your bulb is blown.

My cruise control on my 2001 Kia Sportage stopped working.


Check your repair manual where the vacuum hoses for the cruise controls are (engine bay). Maybe one of the hoses came off or has a leak.

The two problems are most likely not related. The cruise control could be a broken button (that happened to me once) or a broken wire or blown fuse. Check the fuse and the wiring. Where is the button located?

Envoy 2005 XL Cruise control not working


Your dealership should have seen any underlying codes. Most Cruise controls I've worked on are used on the vehicles vacuum. that is where i would start, because on a grade your engine uses more vacuum pressure thus taking from some where else.

Hey guys looking at buying an suburu forester 05-06 xt but when i took it for a test drive the engine light was on the owner said its on because the cruise control doesn't work is this true and how much...


This is a guess............. A nonfunctioning cruise control probably would not cause the check engine light to come on , however what ever is causing the check engine light to come on could be stoping the cruise control from working. Is the car a good deal ? Check engine light could be just about anything , even a loose gas cap. What you need to do is use the known problems to get the price down a bit , and then take the vehicle to a mechanic to scan for error codes. The codes tell him which part to replace. More often then not , the repairs are not too expensive.

It probably is the converter. The check engine light has nothing to do with maintenance at all, nor does it really directly concern the engine. The check engine light comes on for emmission purposes. Such as converter, loose gas cap and all kinds of sensors.
