    I found the proublem with the crise..It was the off-on switch on

    the steeing wheel. It was simply broken, I found it with my muti-

    meter.

    One new off-on switch and i was back in buiness.

    Close, but it was the off and on botton on the steering wheel.

    My crusie control doesn't work and my clock has a mind of it's own. My husband is nervous about taking the dash off (even though he is a mechanic) what should I look for and where.

My guess is that you have a short in the steering colum.

From what I have read the flashing cruse light is to get you to fix the problem. Any cel will throw the cruse light and cruse will not work. Get your abs checked out and cruse will work again when fixed.

1998 chavy. blazer cruise control & wipers stop working.


Start with the simple and check the fuses, the other place to move on to would be the cruse and wiper control switch on the leaver. You can buy the replacement leaver control at Auto Zone and they will have the step by step instruction for you to get the job done.
Good luck and keep us posted. You also my want to inspect the wire harness to your cruise control and wiper motor. The harness both run together on the drivers side along the brake boost and the connections my have some corrosion on it or just come loose.

Window wiper problem


Hello I have a saab 9.3 SS 04 and had the same problem.

- intermittent wipe doesn't work, at all
- windscreen washers don't work, at all
- "normal" continuous, and fast wipe work, but the wipers
freeze in the middle of the windscreen if you let go of the
control stalk, rather than sweeping back to the resting position
- same "freeze" happens with the manual wipe (push down on the control stalk)

The weird thing is that, this morning, for about 10 minutes, it seemed to fix itself,
partially - the washers started working etc - but the intermittent wipe still didn't work. However not long after that it went back to the symptoms described above.
also if I unplugged my car battery for a minute the washers worked for several seconds but again same problem occurs.

Solution is to replace your wiper motor. its that "simple"
worked for me. The wiper motor has a lot of electronic stuff and seems to control the washer engine.
Good luck.

Cruse controll


Pull up on the brake pedal. If that does not work check your brake light bulbs (LED brake lights will also keep your cruise control form working). Finally check all of the fuses. This system needs at least 3 different fuses to work properly.
