    i have a 2002 Nissan Altima 2.5 and It has a u1000 and u1001 codes coming up. When I drive it the car shudders like its going in and out of gear. Cruise set light flashes and does not work. Also the prndl indicator is not coming on. I have tried clearing out the codes to see what happens. When the codes are cleared out the car will drive perfectly cruise will work and the prndl light is on. After being shut off for awhile the codes come back and it does it all over again. I have access to a scan tool and was trying to view the data stream for the trans. It will not communicate with that module unless I clear those codes out first. Which means it will not act up. I am going crazy trying to figure this out.

It did not flash when I hit accelerate. I looked at the brake pedal for the contact switch but don't know what I am looking for.

My cruise control on my 2001 Kia Sportage stopped working.


Check your repair manual where the vacuum hoses for the cruise controls are (engine bay). Maybe one of the hoses came off or has a leak.

Cruise control not working


Have you tried pressing the cruise control "on" button once then when you reach your cruise control speed press the "Set/Acc" button. The green cruise light should turn on then.

Which fuse is for cruise control in 2003 ford f150


The fuses for the speed control from the factory are :
Engine Compartment fuse panel #7,
Cab fuse panel Fuses #15, #13, #5

The fuse that goes to the recall part is Fuse #13, 20A

The recall is 05S28. Description: Speed Control Deactivation Switch.
The part number for the recall is : 1L1Z-9F924-AA
The part has a fuse inline that is marked as non serviceable, but 1 revision I saw, it was just an ATM fuse under tape. Not sure if this is the final revision that was used on your truck ( or should have been used ).


The self test for the Cruise Control ( for 00-03 MY, with the CC light on the cluster ) :

With the key off depress and hold the cruise control off button while turning the ignition to the run position,don't start the truck, the cruise light will flash once to let you know it is in self test.
Five additional flashes indicate a bad cruise control servo

Release the cruise off switch and within 5 seconds depress the other switches in sequence:
1. on
2. resume
3. coast
4. set/ accel
The speed control light will flash as each switch is depressed.

If the last one does not flash it may then flash a code

After this the cruise will move the throttle to test the actuator and the cable.
Make sure the throttle returns to idle and turn the key off.
----------------------

Self-Test Diagnostics

WARNING:
This test is a key on engine off (KOEO) test only that is conducted in park only with emergency brake fully engaged.

1. Enter self-test diagnostics by depressing the speed control OFF switch while turning the ignition key ON, making sure the engine does not start and is not running. The speed control indicator on the instrument panel will flash once to indicate that speed control module entered the diagnostic mode. Five additional flashes at this point indicate a defective speed control servo. Release the OFF switch.

2. Press the remaining switches in this sequence: ON, RESUME, COAST and SET/ACCEL.

If the ON switch is not depressed within five seconds after entering the diagnostics mode, the module times out and the procedure must be started over.

The speed control indicator lamp will flash as each switch is depressed. Press each switch in the sequence immediately after the indicator light goes out for the previous switch.

Note:
There will be a slight delay when the last button is pressed and the lamp flashes.

3. A lamp flash with the last button (SET/ACCEL) indicates that the static test passed. If the lamp does not flash with the last button and there are no additional flashes of the lamp, the switch is defective.

If the lamp does not flash with the last button, and additional flashes occur, follow the chart below for trouble codes:

- 2 flashes - BPP defective, circuit is defective, brake applied, CPP switch or jumper (if equipped).

- 3 flashes - deactivator switch is open or circuit defective.

- 4 flashes - vehicle speed signal is out of range or circuit is defective

4. Immediately (.25 second delay) after the static test, the speed control servo does a dynamic test by automatically actuating the throttle lever from 8 mm (0.315 in) to 12 mm (0.472 in) of travel from the idle position. During the dynamic throttle pull, observe throttle movement to witness any binding or sticking of the speed control cable and correct connection of speed control cable to throttle lever. Make sure the throttle returns to the idle position.

5. Return the ignition switch to the OFF position and proceed to the Symptom Chart.

2001 F-150 cruise control stopped working. Already checked the fuse and it's good. What's next


really tough to do on the net but first we need to know about any codes...

Hold speed control OFF button, and turn ignition switch to RUN position. CRUISE indicator should flash once to indicate successful entry into self-diagnostic mode. If CRUISE indicator does not flash, start procedure over. If CRUISE indicator still does not flash, repair system by symptom there might be some switch concern

If CRUISE CONTROL indicator flashes once followed by 5 additional flashes, replace speed control servo/actuator.

Release speed control OFF button. Within 5 seconds in entering self-diagnostics, press speed control ON button. Press remaining speed control buttons in the following sequence; ON, RES, COAST and SET/ACCEL.

As each button is pressed, CRUISE indicator will flash.

Wait until indicator light goes out, then press next button. After sequence has been completed, indicator light will flash to indicate test passed or failed. With the codes we can then better diagnose your concern

Immediately after static test has passed, actuator performs a dynamic test by automatically operating throttle .04-.40" (1-10 mm). Observe throttle movement to witness any sticking in cable or linkage. Ensure throttle returns properly. Turn ignition switch to LOCK position. If self-diagnostics do not pinpoint fault there is more we can do but tough over the net

Cruise does not work on Ford F150


Once you verify / change the Cruise Control Switch
This is the recall that hickoryy472 posted about ( you can also check on the ford site to see if it is still outstanding, it is free ).
recall 05S28. Description: Speed Control Deactivation Switch.

Another option for testing is to pull the connector on the End of the Master Cylinder, and jumper the 2 pins in the connector together. This is a secondary safety switch, in case the tail lamps go out while using the CC, that the pressure switch will shut off the CC.

Next you can run a self test on the CC :

There is a self test in the cruise control system.
With the key off depress and hold the cruise control off button while turning the ignition to the run position,don't start the truck, the cruise light will flash once to let you know it is in self test.
Five additional flashes indicate a bad cruise control servo

Release the cruise off switch and within 5 seconds depress the other switches in sequence:
1. on
2. resume
3. coast
4. set/ accel
The speed control light will flash as each switch is depressed.

If the last one does not flash it may then flash a code

After this the cruise will move the throttle to test the actuator and the cable.
Make sure the throttle returns to idle and turn the key off.

You don't have the stalk GM type CC switch, so clint969's post is good info, just for another manufacture.
The buttons ( if they are the problem ) can be removed from the steering wheel without pulling the steering wheel itself on a Ford.

Start with the recall, and then test the CC, and see if you have an issue still

"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. :-)
