When my 1999 Cabrio was new the cruise control went out. It took the dealership and along with a VW expert 10 days to find a pinched harness assembly under the battery box.

SOURCE: speedometer and cruise control are not working.

did you chech relays the are located under the hood in a black box it should say fuses only buy on relay at a time if the are see thru you can tell if they have a break in them or use a tester the big black square relays you cant see thru just buy one and check each relay until your problem is fixed also check your fluid level in your trans too much is a big problem and might cause hard shifting but it sounds like a relay switch

SOURCE: My cruise control doesn't work??...any

jnjkingbird, It sounds like this problem is the clock spring as I don't believe that the horn and the cruise control would share a fuse. However, they do share a circuit in the clock-spring. You can check for power at each unit (horn and the cruise control) which would confirm this. Check each fuse as well. Good luck with this.

After having my 2006 santa fe serviced at 60000 miles, my cruise control doesn't work. I had it lubed, radiator flush, oil change, brakes checked, timing belt replaced, water pump replaced.


Try checking all of your rear brake lights to see if they are working.If you have a burned out bulb the control cannot complete the circuit and the cruise will not work. Dont forget the third brake light sometimes have more than one bulb in them so check closely to make sure that all bulbs are good.
