The cruise control on my 2001 Mitsubishi Montero Sport XS is not working after I took my car in for a complete interior / exterior detailing. What do you suggest I check? It has worked beautifully since the day I bought the car brand new.

Well the first thing is to check all your fuses, then i would take a look under the hood for any broken or disconnected vacuum lines,this is what i would check first, hope this is helpful.

I have had several problems with my cruise control on my 2001 Montero Sport 2wd 3.0 engine. First the cruise control light would come on but would no engage. This turned out to be a cracked vacuum line. When the vaccuum line was changed it worked fine. A year later the cruise control would engage but would not disengage when the brake was applied. I could on;y disengage the cruise cintrol by shutting off the switch. When this problem occured my break lights where not working. Once I replaced the break light swich located on top of the break pedal arm everything worked. fine. The cruise contro is tied into this switch. These switches run about $30.00 and are easy to replace.

What size tires does a 2001 mitsubishi montero sport v6 engine use please?

The tire size depends on the vehicle trim level. Below are multiple trim levels and their respective tire sizes.

ES 235/75/15
LS 255/70/16
Limited 255/70/16
XLS 255/70/16
XS 255/70/16

The best thing to do if the vehicle is available is to inspect the tire sidewall for what the current equipment is. There is also typically a sticker in the driver door jamb, center console or glovebox stating the proper tire size & inflation.

My cruise control stoped working in my 2003 mitsubishi montero sport how can i fix it ? is it a fuse?

check the fuse to make sure the system has power.
next check the cable connected to the motor that pulls the throttle
out or releases in depending on how fast the cruise control wants you to go.

I've had 2 cars that recently had cable problems. The first was a 1999 Ford Expedition with a broken cable.
The second, was a 1997 Cadillac Deville that had a broken cable.

no cable means no actuation to keep the speed up of the car after depressing the cruise button.

Good luck on this one.

Replaced the brake switch on a 1998 Mitsubishi Montero Sport and the cruise control won't work

Recheck your brake switch connections. The cruise control as we both kow is shut off when the brake is tapped or depressed. If the wires are connected properly there is the p;ossibility that the brak light switch is out of adjustment. Walk behind the car an see if the brake lights are always on. If they are always on move the plunger further away from the brake pedal actuation arm by adjusting the lock nuts on the plunger stem so that the stem retracts away from the pedal arm.

Thanks for using FixYa.
