The cruise control id electromechanical so if it doesn't work then the electronic circuit it contains is defective. What could cause it to malfunction:
  - the unit simply doesn't get the power - the fuse is out - check it and replace it.
  - the activating button doesn't work - you must disassemble the dash, access the wiring and test the button.
  - the cruise control module is malfunctioning - it must be tested and replaced if necessary.
  - the servomotor that moves the pedal is defective  - access the motor and test it.
 - the throttle linkage is broken - replace it.
As you can see only the first procedure is accessible for the average guy. If the fuse is good then it's time to take the pickup to someone with car electronics experience, not your average mechanic.

SOURCE: 03 chevy z71 cruise contol problem

There are a few things you can try. First, check your
brake lights, if they do not work the problem may be
in the stoplight sw circuit. Also there are 3 fuses you
can check, 1 is a 25amp in the fuse block under the
hood the next 2 are in the fuse block under the dash.
One is the 15amp stoplight fuse and the other is a
10amp turn sig fuse. These fuses are either directly
or indirectly related to the cruise ctrl. Next check the
cruise switchs accel/coast set/resume if either sw.
was sticking in any posistion for 90 seconds or more,
the cruise ctrl. will shut down. There are trouble codes that will set but they won't trip the check engine light. You'll need an obdII scanner to recover
them from the memory. If you don't have one, go to
autozone/napa or advance auto parts they will scan it
free. The codes of interest are po571 stoplight switch
po567 and po568 the cruise ctrl switch's. And any
other codes related to the torque converter clutch -
the speed sensor - throttle actuator control.
Hope this helps. Good luck.

My cruise contol shows its on but wont set what do i need to check


Check under your hood for any disconnected vacuum hoses. All cars are different, so do a search for cruise control vacuum lines for your vehicle. Good luck!

206 SONATA CUSE CONTOL DOESNT WORK


You could possibly have a "brake lamp switch" faulty in your vehicle. There is a recall on these for certain model vehicles. Your vehicle may think your brakes are on, which isn't allowing the cruise control to activate.
Also the new Hyundai's are manufactured that if the Engine light is on, your cruise control won't work.
But I would try the Stop Lamp Switch first.

Hope this helps.

My tail lights work only with headlights on. My brake lights and blinkers and cruise contol is not working. Also my heater fan was working on high speed only, now isnt working at all. Fan trouble...


Brake lights are likely not coming on because of a broken brake light switch. It should be above the brake pedal arm and activate the brakes when the pedal moves down. If it is not that you should check all your rear bulbs.
Cruise control and fan issues will have to be diagnosed.

WHERE IS THE CRUISE CONTOL FUSE LOCATED ON A 2003 MOUNTAINEER


Should be in the fuse box under the dash on the driver's side. The fuses should have a label to tell which is which stuck to the inside cover of the fuse box or molded into the cover.

Intermintent cruise contol on 2007 ion coupe 2.4 not red line. I've had it to the dealer several times, and it seems to work for them thats Bull### what else can I do to fix this? Thanks


My 2007 Ion 2.2L sedan has the same issue. Every now and then when I am driving, the Cruise Control fails to engage. If I turn the car off, re-crank it, it works fine. Dealer cannot find the issue and it only happens about once a month. No bad computer codes or anything, just annoying.
