    when my speedometer quit on my 97 ford thunderbird it was a fuse - a quick $5 fix. go to autozone and they can tell you where the fuse box is (near the E brake) and which fuse you need.

CRUISE CONTROL QUIT


There should be a Cruise Control relay too. Find one thats the same and switch them out, like the horn relay. If the Cruise starts working then you have a bad relay.

Crusie control does not work on 2011 gmc sierra 1500 and I've already replaced the switch?


If the switch is replaced,then it can be wiring issue or faulty cruise control board.But as the switch is replaced,get the voltage at the switch tested to confirm the switch is actually receiving voltage.If no voltage received at switch power supply wire then ,apply external 12 volt power to the cruise control switch wire and then see if cruise control comes ON.If yes,then you know wiring is issue.

When driving, Speedodometer drops to zero.


I thought this year of Santa Fe had a 100k Warranty? If so, take it to the dealer and get it fixed. Even if it's not under warranty, take it and get it fixed! This is dangerous to use with the cruise control!! Do not use the Cruise Control until you get this fixed. It sounds like a bad speedomoter sensor, and that is confusing the Cruise Control. Either your speedometer is going to stop working altogether, or your going to RAM someone from behind going at a DANGEROUS rate of speed. Take it and get it fixed, and do not use the Cruise Control until it is fixed.

CRUISE CONTROL QUIT WORKING ON 94 RANGER 4.0L 4X4


there is a control box for the cruise control behind the glove box . You can remove the cover by pushing in from both sides of the glove box door . the control box will be just inside the glove box to the top. it simply unplugs. any junk yard with an aerostar or ranger or explorer will have one of these control boxes fairly cheap. these control boxes are commonly known to just quit workingand are a very easy fix.
