What causes the speed to fluctuate when you set the cruise control?


if it just started to happen you may have lost a magnet off the drive shaft. If it is a front wheel drive then you would have two magnets on the flywheel if you lost one magnet it would cause problems.
The other possible cause if the sensitivity setting is set too sensitive then the cruise control will surge .
Setting it lower will allow it to slowly respond to speed changes but if going up hill it will take a while to increase the acceleration . Or going down hill it could accelerate too much before the cruise control realises it is going downhill
Also a very wet road can cause the wheels to spin and cause the cruise control to lose the plot and accelerate to dangerous speeds.
I have had this happen to myself once so be wary of cruise control use in wet conditions.

Cruise control on 1996 Chevy Silverado won't hold speed


Possibly a broken wire in the steering column. Wires goint through the steering column for the cruise are so fragile when the tilt is used alot causing the wires to brake. Part is $70.00 through advance auto. Cheapest I've found if you order online.

2001 Lincoln LS, 5 speed manual, cruise control buttons are mixed up. + does resume, - sets or increases speed, cancel sets or reduces speed and won't cancel. Is this computer related? Had an issue...


Sounds like your clock spring may be going bad. The blinking cruise control symbol is a warning that you are traveling at a high speed. That is nothing to really worry about.

How to use cruise control


Here are the steps in using cruise control:

  1. Get on a road you will be traveling at the same speed for a long period of time, such as a freeway.
  2. Reach your desired speed. Choose a speed that allows you to move with the flow of traffic and not go over or under the designated speed limit for that road.
  3. Locate the ON and SET buttons on your steering wheel. Press ON first and SET after. Your cruise control is now activated. Most vehicles must be traveling at least 30 miles per hour to set the cruise control.
  4. Press and hold the SET button if you wish to use cruise control at a higher speed. Hold until your desired speed is reached.
  5. Decrease speed by pressing the COAST button.
  6. Push the brake pedal to disengage the cruise control function. If you wish to return to the previous set speed, use the RES (resume) button. You must be traveling at least 30 miles per hour for this function to resume.
  7. Erase any previous speed by pressing the OFF button.

Speedometer reading fluctuates


IMHO, I think that the broken cable is what is causing the problems. It "confuses" the programing of the CPU or computer.
