I had approached a local garage that specialize in import cars and asked for some advice on my issue. They gave me some ideas to try and look for. remember that I am mechanically incline when it comes to most things. Feeling armed with some good info, I went home to work on some of their suggestions. One suggestions was to check the brakeing switch that works off the brake pedal movement. As everyone knows, when you touch the brake when cruise is on it cancels out the cruise functions. The mechanic said that if this was not working properly the the cruise control would not work as well. I was also told to check all the vacume lines that have to deal with the cruise assembly. Upon inspection of the lines I noticed some vacume modules. So I tapped all the modules with a rubber handled screw driver as well.
Later that day I took the car for a drive and tried the cruise control and low and behold, it worked. This advice cost me just a little bit of my time and thats all. I am so gratefull for the advice that was given to me from Alpine Motors that led to a simple fix for my issue, that I when to the local donut shop and bought a large box of treats for them. I was fortunate this time arround, but I didn't give up hope that this issue was not as serious as it seems to be.

Sounds like your cruise control module has a short circuit, which would explain why the fuse blew again after starting the car. You can verify this by unplugging the cruise control module then starting the car. Then check the fuse again. If the fuse is blown then the fault is associated with the horn circuit. If the fuse is not blown then you know the fault is associated with the cruise control circuit.

Where is the fuse for the cruse control


No its called A cruise control module. That's a computer. Don't convict the module before having properly diagnosed. It could be anywhere from the cruise control activation handle/switch to the module to the wheel sensors. It wouldn't be fair to you by PC. If you want to ck fuses, ck all the fuses. Under the dash, and under the hood.

Could be as simple as a blown fuse. Check the fusebox below the driver's console and look at the inside diagram to determine the correct fuse. When that doesn't help, you could have a dealer read the car's faultcodes (using ODB) for further troubleshooting

Check that the cruise control module fuses are not blown in the fuse panel. Also make sure your stop lights are working; cruise controls are designed to disengage when the brakes are applied, and one method of sensing that is to monitor brake light current.


then reset your four wheel drive again

Bulb on license plate is out and cruise control. 2004 cavalier


The two problems should not be related to one another. The the fuses for the park lights and the cruise control. The license plate bulb is wired along with the rest of your park lights. If the rest of the park lights are working then check for power and ground at the bulb holder. If you have both there, check the bulb and the fit again. If no power or ground is there you will have to trace the wires. If the fuse is not blown to the cruise control, more information is required to trouble shoot any further.

The "resistors" are actually maxi-fuses. Your Batt1 or Batt2 fuse is blown more than likely. There should be other components that are not working.
Look down into the Maxi-fuse, you should be able to see the fused bridge of the fuse. If it is dark, it has blown. If you compare it to the others, you will see the difference. You can also remove the cap on top of the fuse to see the fuse bridge.
Good luck,
Regards,
