Some cruise controls are vacuum controlled check the vacuum lines make sure they are hooked up and are not leaking air or sucking in outside air. Another cause could be the cruise control switch around the brake pedal. There should be two there is one for the brake lights and the other is for disengaging the cruise control try bending the bracket downward a bit and maybe spraying some WD40 on switch in case it might be sticking due to wear so the switch operates freely. Happy motoring!!!

I have a 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan and my cruise control does come on, but with it a brake indicator light comes on as well. Why would this be?


Check to ensure your rear brake lights are working. If there is a fault in the brake light switch at the pedal then this is also what cuts out the cruise control. If you have no rear brake lights then replace the switch.

When you push the cruise control the light turns on on the dash but nothing happens what should i run test on 1998 dodge caravan se


I have the same problem on my 1998 Grand Caravan. Cruise control light comes on but it will not set. Have had the clock spring replaced (2 years ago) and BCM (6 months ago). Could be brake light switch on the brake pedal. Haven't been able to check it yet because of weather. Sounds easy to change and costs about $16.00. Will try to post if I get a new switch and it works.

1999 Dodge Grand Caravan horn and Cruise control


I recently had the same issue, but my airbag warning lights also turned on. If this is the case, it might be the clockspring. There is a recall on clocksprings for Caravans 1998 - 2000 I believe. I got it replaced for free in the dealership. Enter your VIN in this site and it will tell you if you are covered in the free replacement warranty.

2002 Dodge Caravan Transmission not upshifting


Hello,
I also was concerned about my tranny in my 1998 dodge caravan. I replaced the fluid & filter and it worked for a while. I finally had to bring it to AAMCO Transmission and they gave me a free evaluation of it & an estimate for the job. I had the option of ignoring their evaluation results and bring it home or just bite the bullet and have it repaired. I thought I could get a lot more miles out of it so I had it fixed for $1400 with no regrets.

Perhaps if you can find a similar place with free evaluation & estimate then that would be the thing to do as you seemed to have covered all the other bases.

Good Luck!

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan Horn Not Working


The most common problem with this is the clockspring, it is located just under the steering wheel. It will cause the horn not to work, airbag light to come on, and the cruise not to work. There is probably a recall on this. Contact a local dealer to see if the recall applies to your car.
