Question about 1997 Honda Civic

1 Answer

I have a '97 Honda Civic 5 speed manual. The cruise control recently just stopped working. The light ON the cruise button on the left side of the dash does not light up anymore. I have checked the fuse and it looked fine but replaced it anyway just to be safe. I have a feeling that it is the button itself that is broken because i accidentally used it to switch off the cruise because my model didn't come with a cancel button, only set/slower resume/faster button on the steering wheel.

Applying the brakes drops the cruise control function. Check for bad brake pedal interlock switch.

So after you push the button and then press the set button in the steering wheel it does not get into cruise control ? It sounds like a minor electrical problem. If you have warranty still I think the dealership should fix it for free.

Sorry i have not been able to help you.

SOURCE: MY 1989 Honda Accord had cruise control until it

Look for the obvious. Check for the cable that goes to the throttle to see if it came off or broke. Also look for any leaks in the vacuum system. A small leak will cause it not to work. The unit may be engaging but with one of these problems, it just won't work.

Good Luck

Cruise control just doesn't respond


Could be a blown fuse, or it could be a faulty sensor switch , either on the brake or excelorater.

Cruise control how to use


Most cruise controls are designed to disengage when you press the brake pedal. I always mention this first because people tend to try to press the clutch pedal while the cruise control is engaged and this startles them when the engine revs up all the way...

Anyway, to use your cruise control:

1) Press the Cruise control button to on.
2) Drive up to the speed you need to go.
3) Press the "Set/Coast" button.
4) let go of the accelerator pedal

If the cruise control system is operating correctly, your vehicle will continue to travel at the same speed until you either press the brake pedal or you cancel the cruise setting with the cancel button of the cruise control.

Remember: Your civic is not equiped with a radar system for your cruise control, so if you are aproaching an intersection or traffic in front of you, do not expect the car to know it needs to stop. Also, cruise control only operates the accelerator pedal i your car, it is not autopilot, so it will not steer your car for you.

(you think it sounds silly that I am writing this? You should see my friend's car... He thought Cruise control was like autopilot, so he smashed his brand new civic into a tree...)

Happy Motoring!

"Cruise" on a 5-speed '00 Hyundai Elantra


I have this same car. The place you set speed control is on the windshield wiper switch on the right side of the steering column. The button with the indicator light has to be pushed in order to use the cruise control but just because the indicator light is on, it does not mean the cruise is on. Hope this helps a little. If you need more info and someone else doesn't answer more eloquently.. I'll check back and try to give you more info. :-)

How does cruise control work on 1998 honda civic


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

97 honda accord v6 luxury cruise control not working


Yes, it probably is the brake switch. It must be working properly for the cruise control to work. If the part you got did not come from a car with cruise control, it will only have two electrical posts and not the four that you need.
If it is the right part, it must be turned in until the button is pushed completely, but not so far that it begins to actuate the master cylinder. Please report your results.
