Cruise goes off when left or right signal is used.
All of a sudden, my cruise control goes off when I turn on a signal-either left or right. The 2004 Sequoia has 145,000 miles on it and has been a champ-this problem just suddenly appeared one day. I'm on cruise control heading down highway, come upon a slower car and signal to change lanes-cruise goes off. Same thing when I signal to return to original lane. Any thoughts? No electrical work ever done and no other problems with vehicle.

Re: Cruise goes off when left or right signal is used.
You may need to change your signal/cruise control device. You may try an auto recycling center.
Remove the positive wire from the battery
remove screws at the back of the airbags. Don't worry, you disable them when you remove power,
With a socket 1/2in drive and maybe an 18 or 20 remove steering wheel
Once the wheel is remove you should see your signal/cruise device.
You could go to your local auto store and buy a book or online www.hayes.com and it will help with the procedure

Check the cruise control module connector, see if it looks good and there is power to the module over one of the white wires in the 10 pin connector. There are two white wires going to the module which is located at pins "G" and "J". There should be no voltage at pin "G" until the brake switch is applied. This switch is also used to operate the brake lights. The two wire colors on this switch are white and orange. At pin "J", this signal goes to the PCM to tell it that the cruise control module is engaged. Here is the info on the cruise control connector: Pin A: gray - cruise control on switch signal: 12VDC with cruise switch on Pin B: dark blue - cruise control set/coast switch signal: 12VDC with switch pressed Pin C: gray/black - cruise control resume/accel switch signal: 12VDC with switch pressed Pin D: brown - cruise control release signal: 12VDC with brake pedal not pressed: 0V when pressed Pin E: black/white - ground Pin F: brown - ignition 3 voltage: 12VDC with ignition on Pin G: white - stop lamp switch signal: 0V with brake pedal not pressed: 12VDC when pressed Pin H: dark green - cruise control inhibit signal: 0V if PCM detects an inhibit condition Pin J: white - cruise control engaged signal: voltage (unsure of value, either 12VDC or 5VDC) when signal engaged Pin K: dark green - vehicle speed signal: 1 to 5 volts depending on speed This view of connector is facing it after it is separated.
Trying to post the connector view, the lines may not quite line up, but at least it should show you the pin positions.
make sure the cruise control cable to the throttle isn't too loose, if it is ok, check your brake switch. if it is sending the signal the brake is on it will not allow cruise to work and will do same thing as described about the set light.
use a scanner to check the abs system . most of the time the abs brakes and traction control system work together. your cruise control . unit has a servo motor .in front right fender well. check the fuse and relay also the cruise control brake release switch. and the brake light switch.if all is good you have a cruise control module problems. dealer ship job.
Just a wild suggestion not at all specific to your car... Check the bulbs in, and functionally of, your turn signals and tail lights and brake lights. I'd don't know if it still applies, but once upon a time a burnt out bulb would cause the cruise not to work (some kind of a safety thing).
