Cruise Control Shuts Off

Hello,

I'm hoping someone here could answer a question for me.

I noticed that whenever I pressed the DECELERATE button on the steering control, it actually shuts off the cruise control completely. It happend to me twice yesterday when I used the decelerate button to slow down for a slower vehicle in front of me going up a hill. When I pressed RESUME & nothing happened that I realized the the "cruise" light on the dashboard was off.
Then a little while later, I actually saw the cruise light turn off when I was holding down the DECELERATE button the second time. I thought at first that maybe because the CANCEL button was located between the RESUME/ACCELERATE and DECELERATE control. But after pondering about it, I figure it should not shut off the cruise control completely since the ON/OFF button is on the other end of the steering wheel.

If anyone has any ideas what's causing this little inconvenience would be much appreciated.

My vehicle is a 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT.

Thanks again!

SOURCE: Cruise control shuts off up hill

if the cruise control light has come on then i would take it to a dealer and have them hook it up to the scan tool and see what exactly is going on. I think that pretty much is going to be your BEST bet. However you should check your brake fluid because if your brake fluid is too low then the cruice control will not work.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: cruise control light will not come on after truck

After the light goes out does it come back on while driving down the road?
If it does this sounds as if you may have a heat sensitive problem at the cruise motor. this has a sensoe that turns the light on when it is engaged. when you turn it off and sits a while does the heat under the hood goes higher expanding the circuts an open circut. You may have to replace the board in the motor.

In the front, there should be a bulbous looking device - this is the vacuum chamber for the cruise. Check to make sure the vacuum hose did not slip off. That was the problem on my van.

Where is the fuse for cruise control on a 2003 envoy


It is HVAC 1fuse #39 in the rear fuse block ,this powers the on/off switch for cruise control ! Fuse Block - Rear Beneath the left rear seat. What engine does it have ? 4.2 L or 5.3 l There is no vacuum involved in the operation of the cruise control ! Your vehicle has electronic throttle control .
Cruise control is a speed control system that maintains a desired vehicle speed under normal driving conditions at vehicle speeds above 40 km/h (25 mph). Steep grades may cause variations in the selected vehicle speeds.
The following are the main components of the Cruise Control System:
?€¢
The powertrain control module (PCM)


?€¢
The On/Off switch


?€¢
The Resume/Accel switch


?€¢
The Set/Coast switch


?€¢
The TCC brake switch


?€¢
The stop lamp switch


?€¢
The throttle actuator control (TAC) motor


?€¢
The vehicle speed sensor


Cruise Control Engaged
The cruise control system will engage and adjust the vehicle speed based on the activation of the following cruise control switches:
?€¢
On/Off


?€¢
Resume/Accel.


?€¢
Set/Coast

The cruise control switches are located on the multifunction/turn signal lever.
The powertrain control module (PCM) monitors the signal circuits of the cruise control switches in order to determine when to capture and maintain the selected vehicle speed. The PCM uses the throttle actuator control (TAC) module motor in order to control the vehicle speed. For further information on the TAC System, refer to Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) System Description in Engine Controls - 4.2 L.
Ignition positive voltage is supplied from the 10 ampere HVAC 1 fuse to the cruise control switch via the ignition 3 voltage circuit. When the normally open cruise control On/Off switch is turned On, the switch closes and the PCM detects a high signal voltage on the cruise control on switch signal circuit. When the normally open Set/Coast switch is pressed, the switch closes and the PCM detects a high signal voltage on the cruise control set/coast switch signal circuit. To engage the cruise control system, turn the On/Off switch On and momentarily press the Set/Coast switch. The PCM will confirm that the cruise control enable criteria has been achieved. The PCM will engage the cruise control system and record the selected vehicle speed. The PCM sends a class 2 message to the instrument panel cluster in order to illuminate the cruise control indicator. Pressing the accelerator pedal, while the cruise control system is engaged, will allow the driver to override the cruise control system in order to accelerate the vehicle beyond the current set vehicle speed. When the accelerator pedal is released, the vehicle will decelerate and resume the current set vehicle speed. The driver can also override the current set vehicle speed via the Set/Coast switch and the Resume/Accel switch. When the cruise control system is engaged, pressing and holding the Set/Coast switch will allow the vehicle to decelerate from the current set vehicle speed without deactivating the cruise control system. When the Set/Coast switch is released, the PCM will record the vehicle speed and maintain the vehicle speed as the new set vehicle speed. When the cruise control system is engaged, momentarily pressing the Set/Coast switch will allow the vehicle to decelerate at 1.6 km/h (1 mph) increments for each time that the Set/Coast is momentarily pressed, with a minimum vehicle speed of 37 km/h (23 mph). When the normally open Resume/Accel switch is activated, the switch closes and the PCM detects a high signal voltage on the cruise control resume/accel switch signal circuit. Activating and holding the Resume/Accel switch, when the cruise control system is engaged, will allow the vehicle to accelerate to a greater vehicle speed than the current set vehicle speed. When the Resume/Accel switch is released, the PCM will record the vehicle speed and maintain the vehicle speed as the new set vehicle speed. When the cruise control system is engaged, momentarily activating the Resume/Accel switch will allow the vehicle to accelerate at 1.6 km/h (1 mph) increments for each time that the Resume/Accel switch is momentarily activated, with the maximum acceleration total of 16 km/h (10 mph) over the current set vehicle speed . Momentarily activating the Resume/Accel switch, after the cruise control system has been disengaged by pressing the brake pedal, will recall the previous set vehicle speed that is recorded in the PCM.

2005 Chevy trailblazer ext problems 1. Cruise will not set.worked last on 4/12/15 2. While checking fuses for CC problemdome lights stopped working, but worked fine before checking fuses. PLEASE HELP!


Bummer deal! This may be a way to tell you some tail lights are burnt out. Some cruise controls have a fuse in a second location.
The fuse is not in right or is blown. Check with a new fuse. Hope this helps. ...gc http://www.auto-tune-up-and-repair-options.com/

Cruise control on 1996 Chevy Silverado won't hold speed


Possibly a broken wire in the steering column. Wires goint through the steering column for the cruise are so fragile when the tilt is used alot causing the wires to brake. Part is $70.00 through advance auto. Cheapest I've found if you order online.

I want to know how to use my cruise control in my 1994 Toyota pickup. It has all the buttons and the capability but the words are scratched off and i don't have a manual.


Generally... There is ON/OFF - SET - ACCELERATE/RESUME, COAST/DECELERATE. Cruise is available at speeds above 35mph or so. Sometimes there is no main on/off. Cruise on a turn signal stem has a button that pushes in on the end, push when at desired speed. resume/accelerate slides to right, is spring loaded and return left when released. the same lever when slid left is coast/decelerate. Momentarily sliding accelerate and releasing increases crusing speed by a couple mph. If brakes are used cruise disengages, sliding resume returns you to cruise speed after braking. Coast/decelerate disengages cruise, when at desired lower speed hit set. On some, hitting set not needed, when coast is released speed is maintained. Variations may be up/ down instead or may be steering wheel face mounted. Please rate answer. Duct tape is like the force, it has a dark side.. a light side.. and holds the universe together!

"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. :-)

The rear lights won't shut off when the car is shut off.


the lights you have on are probably the brake lights. you need to check the brake light switch. it is probably stuck in the on position and that would cause the cruise to not function properly because the cruise automatically shuts off when you press the brake pedal.
hope this helps!

What is Cruise Control and O/D


Cruise control allows the driver to push a button thereby setting and holding the car's current speed. This allows you to take your foot off the acceleratot pedal and "cruise." Modern "Cruise" systems also have added feature like increasing or decreasing your speed, and coasting so that you can adjust your speed for traffic or road conditions without exiting the cruise function. Touching the brake pedal automatically turns the cruise function off; or you can exit by turning cruise button to "off" at the touch of your thumb or fingertips. Cruise helps on long trips by reducing fatigue, and keeps you from going over the speed limit by setting your speed to the posted limit.

Hope this helps. I will address overdrive in another post. Thanks, TaterTodd
