Make sure it's on before pressing the cruise control button.
If it's on, then check the vacuum control for the cruise control, and verify the cable is intact.
Check the wires and connections to the electronic module for the cruise control.
Is the speedometer cable operating the speedometer correctly, if so equipped?

I hope this helps.

    I press it to turn it on and nothing happens, so i will check the wires.

    Yes, I would check the wires to the module if it doesn't activate at 35 mph or faster and that cruise control on/off switch is on.

    by on off switch you mean the one actual button in the car correct? there isnt a magical hidden switch somewhere right?

    I'm not sure how your cruise control is set up because it's kind of an older one for me.
    But, on the turn signal switch there's a button for engaging the cruise control. Sometimes there is a switch on that same turn signal to turn the cruise control on or off or to accelerate.

    If it's not there, the on/off switch may be on the dash, like my 1990 Cadillac Deville.

    In our 1976 Cadillac Seville, there is an on/off switch for cruise control on the dash, as well.

    It's a safety thing that many models of cars have.

    Our 1980 Suburban didn't have this switch, though, so your car may not have it if you don't see it on the dash somewhere.

    There isn't a lot of information on the www about this, but you can search on search engines about your car to see if there is an owner's manual out there.

1986 kawasaki voyager 1300 cruise control not working. Any suggestions?


Voyager 1300 models do not have cruise control from the factory. The purpose of the cruise button on the dash is to lean out the fuel mixture for better fuel economy.

My cruise control doesnt work. could it b a fuse out?


CRUISE CONTROL PROBLEMS CAN BE CAUSED BY FUSE OR FAULTY BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH OR BLOWED FUSE TO BRAKE SWITCH.YOUR CRUISE CONTROL SWITCH COULD BE FAULTY.BEST TO TAKE CAR TO DEALERSHIP LET THEM HOOK CAR. TO DIAGNOSTIC EQUIPMENT.BECAUSE CRUISE CONTROL IS ELECTRONIC AND PCM CONTROL.THE CRUISE CONTROL SYSTEM USES INPUTS FROM VSS SENSOR .SO IT WOULD BE HARD TO FIX AT HOME YOU NEED EQUIPMENT TO FIX AND TROUBLE SHOOT.

I have an 86 Ford Econoline Van and the Cruise control doesnt work any suggestions?


Hi ,
More than likely you have a vacuum problem either a vacuum hose is off or cracked or the vacuum servo for the cruise control is bad also check the fuses. Have a good day.

I have a 2007 santa fe and my cruise control doesnt work. all of the fuses are ok and the light still doesnt illuminate when i press the on/off button.


Common issue w/cruise - the control switch, secondly, Cruise Control Module under the hood.
before you start replacing components, take your vehicle into an authorized Hyundai dealership (pay the diagnostic fee), and find out exactly where the cause of the problem exits... it might simply be an 'unplugged' harness connector.

My Cruise Control Wont work, is there a special way to turn on the cruise, because the sign for cruise comes up but it doesnt cruise


First, your car must be in gear and driving approx more than 60 km an hour
Secondly, using the Cruise Stalk switch turn the Cruise on, the dash should now have a lit icon for cruise power (green).
Once you have the desired speed, gently press the button on the end of the cruise in to set your speed. Remove foot from throttle and confirm cruise is active. Another dash light should come on as well (orange)

Failing that, if it doesnt work the usual suspect like fuses and the brake pedal micro switch should be looked at...
