Depending on the speed, there might not be a problem. All the cars that I have owned do not allow you to set the cruise control below about 35 mph. If its at a higher speed then I am not sure what the problem is and you can take it to most car repair shops to get it fixed. As far as I know there is not a high speed limit to set a cruise control (I have set them at 90mph).

How to fix cruise control that is not engaging. What should be checked/tried 1st, 2nd, etc.


certainly sounds suspect
As a point of interest, any parts removed are yours by law and have to be given back to you
so ask for the old parts and have them checked by an accredited auto electrician
the cruise control is operated by several sensors and if any one is not operational the control will not work
1-- vehicle speed sensor (VSS)
2--engine rpms system
3-- ( if manual) clutch sensor
4-- brake sensor
5---ECM
one button is working but the other side (set button ) is controlled by the VSS, brake (clutch) sensors and the ecm or RPM system
cruise controls will not engage under certain speeds or RPMS what all that means is that if the road speed is below a set point, engine rpms are below a point or VSS is faulty , the cruise control will not engage until those conditions are exceed ,or will disengage if conditions fall below the set points b

How do I set cruise control on 2001 buick lesabre limited. just bought car have no manual. cant get it to set.


If you push on and set and nothing happens, the system may not be working properly.
You can get an owners manual on Ebay.

How to fix cruise control?


It seems this car has a problem with its cruise control if any of the brake lights are out or even if a bulb is flickering the cruise control will not engage. I would start my diagnosis there and also the cruise control fuse of course. hope this helps

Speedf odometer moving slow while driving stop working


Next time you start driving and it does not work see if the cruise control and odometer work. Also is the check engine light on?

With no check engine light on, the speed sensor and wiring is ok. You have a bad speedometer. if you try the cruise control I bet it works. Keep in mind that the speedometer would not be repairable by a mechanic. You would have to send it out for repair if you could even find a speedometer repair shop anymore. It will need to be replaced by a new one or used if you can find one in a salvage yard.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.
