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.

I had the same problem with my 2003 Lancer OZ. The oil level and pressure were ok. Car was fine with no light when starting. After 10 to 15 mins of driving it would come on when I was stopped. It would go away when I pressed accelerator. Try replacing the Oil Sending Unit. It's about $10 and easy to swap. That was my problem.

SOURCE: cruise control will not 'set' on '05 kia sportage

Check the brake lighf bulbs. If even one is burnt out, it throws the sensors.
Had the same problem replaced both bulbs and now the esp light stays off and the cruise control sets.

Ford focus cruise control


Once you have turned your cruise control on accelerate to desired speed press SET button on right hand side of steering wheel before lifting foot from accelerator, then remove foot from accelerator. pushing RESUME button will deactivate cruise control without turning it off. Then when clear of traffic push resume again to activate cruise control. It will automatically resume to previous set speed.

I'm getting this code p0582 on Mar 19 2009 you sad you did not no what it was. Do you know now? there no more codes. Cruise Control Related Malfunction i tern on the Cruise Control. Light comes on I set...


P0582 is the Chrysler Diagnostic Trouble Code (Error Code) for:

Speed control vacuum or vent solenoid circuits open or shorted

If you do not have cruise control on your vehicle, you can ignore this code. If you do, you've probably noticed it is no longer working or only works intermittently. The code is saying it's an electrical problem to the servo.

The cruise control enables you to set the car speed mainly on motorways at a constant speed enabling you to take your foot off the gas pedal.It disengages as soon as you touch your brakes. It is activated/deactivated by the paddle switch on you steering wheel.
