Question about 2003 Honda Civic

2 Answers

My 2003 Honda Civic LX cruise control turns on and works for a short distance, but then it shuts off? It jerks just before it shuts off, it won't reset unless you turn off and on the main switch. (which doesn't always work) it will work for a little while, but the problem repeats itself. I checked the brake switch and it works good. what else could be the problem?

Check to see if the speedometer also fluctualtes, it may be minimal and not obvious. The speed sensor is on the transmission, accessible from the right side. If it is starting to go, any drop in signal will cancel the cruise control settings and the car will suddenly decelerate as though you killed it.

A reset at speed will hold as long as the speed sensor is delivering a signal.

    This is for a '95 and similar vintage vehicles, perhaps the 2003 is the same:

Check brake pedal switch which kicks out of cruise when you hit the brakes. These jump out of place easily so check that it is depressed when pedal is released (up).

It works off the speed sensor on the tranny. The information goes thru the computer from the speed sensor and then controls the throttle. Hitting the brakes just cuts (shut) the speed control (it turns it off) The brakes have no control
