    CC didn't work when I bought the Jeep, i thought its just too old, didn't care. All of a sudden, about a year after i bought it, i just tried the cruise for fun, and it WORKED! So i tried it a couple times, and it seemed to work just fine, for a month, then it dies again and haven't resurrected since... Some kind of short or whatever?

My 2001 Cherokee Sport has lost hazards and cruise control.

You are looking more so for relays, not fuses, check the hand book again under relays.

Cruise control just quit working

Check fuses/relays and make sure they are all good; if so check the electrical wiring/connectors in the dash. Jeeps are notorious for loose wires in the dash.

In 1998 2wd Grand Cherokee cruise control stopped working

Do the brake lights work now, as they should? The brake light switch generally triggers the cruise control to snooze.

1998 jeep Cherokee cruise control does not work. how can it be fixed?

Check your vacuum hose routing to the cruise control servo, it's a hard plastic hose and sometimes breaks. Does your vents work properly? An indication that you have a vacuum leak.

Cruise control Turns off intermittantly

You're probably not gonna like this answer, but hwen it comes to electrical problems, you really do need to take it to a garage/mechainc that you trust.

I know I couldn't talk you through what you need to do to fix it, especailly with the Jeep not right in front of me.

If you bought the Jeep from a dealer, take it back there right now, and tell them the cruise troubles you're having...most dealers will fix the problem even on aused car because they want the good news to travel that they took care of you.......they don't want anyone walking around with bad things to say about them.

Good Luck, let us know what ahppens, okay?
