Question about 1998 Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

Hey, I have a 2000 4 runner and the brake light fuse keeps blowing. I first realized this when i tried using thr cruise control and it wouldnt work. When i turn the cruise on the indicator on the dash just blinks and i doesnt work. I found the tail light fuse was blown and replaced it and everything worked again. Then a few days later i tried the criuse and the light just blinked and no brake lights. I put a new fuse in and all was good but this keeps happening. I was using the cruise as an indicator to wether or not the brake lights where working if the cruise light stayed on the brake lights worked, if the cruise lite blinked they didnt work and i had to replace the fuse. Now when i put a new fuse in and do the cruise test it blows right away even if i dont touch the cruise the fuse still blows. Hope you have some good suggestions on where to start looking for this problem. Thanks!

check cruise control fuse and check the brake lights see if brake light working because the brake light switch will deactivate cruise control when brakes is applied.if brake lights dont work either fuse blowed or switch bad.if all is good have vechicle code scan because cruise control control by PCM and vechicle speed sensor and thottle actuator control motor.

My cruise control doesnt work. could it b a fuse out?


CRUISE CONTROL PROBLEMS CAN BE CAUSED BY FUSE OR FAULTY BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH OR BLOWED FUSE TO BRAKE SWITCH.YOUR CRUISE CONTROL SWITCH COULD BE FAULTY.BEST TO TAKE CAR TO DEALERSHIP LET THEM HOOK CAR. TO DIAGNOSTIC EQUIPMENT.BECAUSE CRUISE CONTROL IS ELECTRONIC AND PCM CONTROL.THE CRUISE CONTROL SYSTEM USES INPUTS FROM VSS SENSOR .SO IT WOULD BE HARD TO FIX AT HOME YOU NEED EQUIPMENT TO FIX AND TROUBLE SHOOT.

2000 windstsar sel cruise control stopped working


Check to see if your brake lights are staying on.
I thought my cruise control stopped working too, but realized that it would not work because the brake light control on the brake pedal was stuck.
I changed the $40 control and the cruise control works.

Cruise Control - 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis LS - not working


Your manual should tell you that. Also check your brake light switch by the brake pedal. It also disengages the cruise. If it is bad the cruise will not work but the brake lights may still work.

My '89 Crown Vic keeps blowing brake light fuses. Does fine until I use cruise control then blows fuse. Still has parking lights and signals but no brake lights. Has happened repeatedly. Now I don't use...


check under the dash st the brake pedal,there is a brake light switch which is tied into the cruise control,you could try unplugging that and see if it fixes the problem(remember you will have no brake lights while it's unhooked) if the problem is gone replace the switch.
