Switch is upwards in excess of about 146.00, and 100.00 per hour to replace, if you take this to a dealer at the wrong time(as in a coffee break) this is added to the bill.

2005 trailblazer cruise control not working or the cruise control light not working


Which engine does your trailblazer have 5.3 or 4.2 L
Cruise Control Description and Operation (5.3L)
Cruise Control Description and Operation (4.2L)
makes a difference ! The best way to start diagnostic's is with a scan tool . May have DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes .
DTC P1574 Stop Lamp Switch Circuit
DTC P0568 Cruise Control Set Switch Circuit
DTC P0567 Cruise Control Resume Switch Circuit
Plus with a scan tool you can see if the cruise control switch is inputing to PCM. Data list .
The cruise control resume/accel switch is an input to the powertrain control module (PCM). The PCM uses the cruise control resume/accel switch signal circuit in order to detect when the driver has requested to accelerate the set vehicle speed or to resume the cruise control system. The PCM detects a voltage signal on the cruise control resume/accel switch signal circuit when the switch is applied. This DTC sets if the PCM senses voltage on the cruise control resume/accel switch signal circuit for longer than 90 seconds.
Cruise Control Indicator Inoperative (4.2L)
Turn OFF the ignition.
Install a scan tool.
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
With the scan tool, Command the Cruise Control Lamp Test parameter ON, in the instrument panel cluster (IPC) Output Controls.
Does the Cruise indicator illuminate in the IPC?
YES - Go to Step 3
no - Go to Step 4

Inspect for poor connections at the harness connector of the powertrain control module (PCM). Refer to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections and Connector Repairs .
Did you find and correct the condition?
YES - Go to Step 7
NO - Go to Step 6
4
Inspect for poor connections at the harness connector of the IPC. Refer to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections and Connector Repairs .
Did you find and correct the condition?
YES - Go to Step 7
NO - Go to Step 5
5
Replace the IPC. Refer to Control Module References for replacement, setup, and programming.
Did you complete the replacement?
YES - Go to Step 7

Replace the PCM. Refer to Control Module References for replacement, setup, and programming.
Did you complete the replacement?

Operate the system in order to verify the repair.
Does the system operate properly?
System OK
Go to Step 2

Cruise Control Inoperative/Malfunctioning (4.2L)

Install a scan tool.
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Press the cruise ON/OFF switch OFF.

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.

Cruise control not engaging


Hi there,

As you have not stated the Model of Chev, nor the Year of Manufacture, I will give you some general possibilities:

* Blown fuse
* Short or open in Cruise Control circuit
* Faulty brake switch
* Leaking vaccuum circuit
* Faulty cruise control switch
* Faulty stepper motor
* Faulty transducer
* Faulty speed sensor
* Faulty cruise control module

As with all electrical circuits, you should first check the FUSE.

However, from experience, the most common cause of inoperative Cruise control are:

Brake pedal switch: check that tail lights illuminate when depressing the brake pedal. If not, then replace the brake pedal switch (located up on the brake pedal assembly).

Brake pressure switch: depending on which model Chev you have, there is an electrical switch (look for wires) screwed into the brake cylinder (attached to the brake booster). This switch is a cruise system backup from the pedal switch and measures brake fluid pressure, to disengage the cruise control. When this switch fails, the Cruise Control will not engage. If you have a multimetre, you can test the resistance on the switch terminals (ask Chev for the correct resistance spec) - if not to specification, then replace the switch.

Cruise control release valve: this is the alternative to the brake pressure switch and is also mounted on the brake pedal, above the brake switch. This switch is designed to disengage the cruise control, just like the pressure switch. If you have a multimetre, you can test the spec of this switch (ask Chev for the correct test procedure & specs) - if not to specification, then replace the switch.


NOTE: depending on the year of your vehicle, your local Chev Dealership will be able extract the Cruise Control fault codes, stored in the Cruise Control Computer. This is always the fastest (and cheapest) way to identify the suspected component and will eliminate unnecessary "trial and error" labor costs. This test cannot be done by your typical garage and must be entrusted to your Chev approved service agent only, who will have the correct Scan Tool.

1985 380 SEL Cruise control column switch started smoking. Removed fuse. Changed switch and all electrical contacts test OK. Cruise control not working. Where is main unit located and what is...


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!

Cruise control switch works sporatically.


Faulty product. I install cruise control for 6 years. One of the cables are hooked into the throttle and the other in the vaccuum actuator, since it is electronically controlled actuator, the object itself might be losing it's contents or frankly worded, is taking a nose dive. works much like a brake booster does.

Is it a PID system? (Proportional integral derivative system)
or is it just standard proportional?

That will play a factor.

If you just have one of those cheesy controls (cruise controls), than replace it, obviously it wouldnt of cost much. if it is not, check the actuator and replace it! Replace the Fuse, brush it with wire brush, clean up all connections.
You should be ready to roll!

Good Luck.

Cruise Control Issue


The most common solution is to replace the brake light switch . The switch has 3 sets of contacts one set is for the cruise control. If the cruise control part is at fault the cruise control will not engage. The switch typically costs from 10 to 15 dollars.

Cruise control won't work


Does the on light in the dash come on? If not, you may have a broken switch in the steering wheel which is a fairly cheap repair. Otherwise, the controls work through the Printed Circuit Board in your dash (your instrument cluster) and the problem could be as simple as a solder defect or faulty component. The problem is that no Ford Service Technician that I know will touch this and tell you that you need to replace it.

The instrument cluster is very easy to replace but may cost you a few more dollars than you want to spend. I would have someone with an electrical background check the cruise control switches in your steering wheel with a multimeter before going any further with this. Also check the wiring for resistance leading from the switch to the cluster.
