Question about 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager

1 Answer

Cruise control My cruise control sometimes works and sometimes won't engage. Even when it does come on, it will suddenly stop a while later, and occasionally it doesn't engage initially but then does a few minutes later when i haven't even touched it! If it's working and i have to slow down, it won't reactivate. I checked for fuses but it obviously isn't that since it works some of the time. The only sign leading up to this was for months it seemed to hesitate when i turned it on, but it always worked. Everything else is fine. Is there a quick, inexpensive fix? I travel a lot and need it! Thanks much...

    Same here, have you ever figured out what was doing it?

    I almost had the same issue, but my van would die and be impossible to start again without a boost. I was doing 120kph and it died the other day again, I lost all power steering and power brakes. No safe at all...

    Nobody knows what is going on.

I had this problem and fixed it. The switch on the brake pedal was slightly off adjustment and was detecting as though the brake was always on, disengaging the cruise control. I pulled it apart and put it back together and made sure it was working ok, now my cruise control is working ok.

cruise controls are dependent on the following sensors all working together
brake sensor

fuse for the cruise control
cruise control switch either or all not working will stop the cruise control from engaging
road speed at which you can engage the cruise control has to be above a reset speed before it will cut in and work

My cruise control just stopped working. Is there a faulty fuse, relay, switch I could check myself...?


In that vehicle, the usual culprit is a leaking vacuum line. Also, check the operation of the brake pedal cancel switch by pulling upward on the brake pedal with the toe of your shoe while attempting to engage the cruise control. If the cruise control engages, adjust the cancel switch.

Try checking the small switch at the top of the brake pedal. There may be two one for brake lights and one for the cruise control. To ascertain what is what, pull one wire off and see if brake lights work. If not, then the other switch controls the cruise control disconnect and engage..I you have a DC test light check to see if power is on on both side of the switch with brake pedal up. If so, depress pedal and check power on the other side there should be none, if there is the switch is defective.

Cruise control won't hold speed


This appears to be a common occurrence in some Ford Products. (i,e Taurus, etc, 2003 to 2010?) Seems the cruise control cable can catch on the uptake and fail to release. One way to check is to jack up the rear tires, start the car, (and engage the cruise control to attempt to duplicate the problem SAFELY. Look under the hood, at the behavior of the cruise control cable. Is it kinked, or snagged? If so, re position the cable slightly to clear any possible obstructions. Good Luck!

Cruise control stopped working


Check the cable for the cruise control that leads from the actuator to the cable end located on a wheel that controls throttle. If this cable is broken on the driver's side, then it will not work even if the cruise control is engaged according to the dashboard's driver information center.

Cruise control works intermittently


The problem most likely is with the cruise control computer (ECU) and the fix is to replace it with an older version. I had the same problem and tried replacing other parts and even replacing the ECU with a rebuilt one of the same vintage as the 1993 model. I had the ECU replaced with the previous version at a Saab specialist and it now works all the time. There is a difference in the connections between the different year ECUs that requires some rewiring - you can find rewiring information on the internet.
