If you got a scanner,not a code reader, and you
get yourself a wiring diagram,it should be a
fairly easy fix

    What's the difference between the scanner and code reader? Mine is an OBDCOM.

    I assume the wiring diagram is in the maintenance manual I bought?
    Like I said, no error codes or test failures.

How to fix cruise control on a 2006 ford freestar, does not work at all, wont turn on


Note the diagram, at least check the fuse. Check trouble codes, related to cruise control. to check codes yourself, at least, you need an obd2 code reader that will read po codes as well as manufacturer specific codes. It is worth the investment, in my opinion. Make sure the brake lites work.

Where can I get a repair manual?


Yikes cruise control is very touchy, it gets its signal from the computer so you might have some throttle control issues or egr issues, do you have any engine lights or pending service codes? If you do lots of repairs you can subscribe to mitchell on demand. It is a very accurate site and not to hard to use.

If the fuses and electrical connections are ok, check fault codes stored there, will need OBD scanner reader tool in order to access.

Testing the electrical inputs to the control module from the switch . Testing power an ground circuits to the switch . As a professional technician this is how i go about find what is wrong ! Not just replacing parts , that gets expensive. Do you know what a wiring diagram is ,an how to use one to pin point areas to do testing ? Here is a site for free wiring diagrams . http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter your vehicle info. Year , make , model and engine size . Then under system click on Engine , then under subsystem click on speed controls . Click the search button , then on the blue link . You will see all the componets an wiring for the system . Do you know how to use a volt meter ?

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

If everything is good then the problem will be the control column lever switch. It surely is fried that's why it won't communicate to the cruise control. I strongly suggest that you have the control column switch replaced to resolve the issue. You may get one from the junkyard to cut the cost.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

1994 gmc speedo not working


Go for a test drive and see if your cruise control works . If it doesn't , you might have a bad vehicle speed sensor or VSS, as it is called . Also , if it is that , the computer will have stored a code indicating such . Have someone scan your vehicle with a OBD 2 scanner to see if this is the case . If so , replace the VSS.

Did not pass state inspection (vehicle)


First the fault codes,
U110C is No Fuel Level Bus Message
U0155 is No Cluster Bus Message.
Unfortunatly you have to be able to communicate with the instrument cluster with your scanner to diagnoise and I do not think an aftermarket scanner can do this.

03 chevy z71 cruise contol problem


There are a few things you can try. First, check your
brake lights, if they do not work the problem may be
in the stoplight sw circuit. Also there are 3 fuses you
can check, 1 is a 25amp in the fuse block under the
hood the next 2 are in the fuse block under the dash.
One is the 15amp stoplight fuse and the other is a
10amp turn sig fuse. These fuses are either directly
or indirectly related to the cruise ctrl. Next check the
cruise switchs accel/coast set/resume if either sw.
was sticking in any posistion for 90 seconds or more,
the cruise ctrl. will shut down. There are trouble codes that will set but they won't trip the check engine light. You'll need an obdII scanner to recover
them from the memory. If you don't have one, go to
autozone/napa or advance auto parts they will scan it
free. The codes of interest are po571 stoplight switch
po567 and po568 the cruise ctrl switch's. And any
other codes related to the torque converter clutch -
the speed sensor - throttle actuator control.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
