Speed control not working, where is the fuse located?

My 2001 ZX3 speed control is not working. I cannot find a fuse in the panel for the speed control. Do you think the fuse could be the problem?

    I have checked the fuses listed, I did have 1 bulb burnt out in the brake lights above the back window, but after it was replaced the cruise still does not work. Any other ideas? Thanks for trying!

There are three fuses that have to work for the cruise to operate, including the brake lights.Check fuse numbers 53,54, and 59. It can also be affected by the brake switch (and clutch switch - if equipped). The cruise also needs a connection through the brake light bulbs, which means that it will not work if the bulbs are burnt out or if you have LED tail lights. Try pulling up on the brake pedal to see if it is the brake switch. Please post your results. Thanks.

Cruise control stop working light dont show on dash can a fuse be out if so where is it located


There are three fuse's in the smart junction box , do you know where it is ? It's under the dash panel left side ! The fuse's are F2.27- 10amp , F2.32 - 10amp , F2.17 - 15 amp . They power the speed control servo ! Maybe the control switch's on the steering wheel don't work.
A little back ground on the system ! Speed Control The vehicle speed control system consists of the following components:
  • Brake pedal position (BPP) switch
  • Speed control actuator cable
  • Speed control switches
  • Speed control deactivator switch
  • Speed control indicator
  • Speed control actuator
  • Smart junction box (SJB)
  • Principles of Operation
    The speed control system is designed to maintain vehicle a set speed above 48 km/h (30 mph). After the speed control ON switch is pressed, pressing the speed control switch SET/ACCEL will activate the speed control actuator. To increase a set speed, either press and hold for continuous acceleration, or momentarily tap the speed control switch SET/ACCEL for 1.6 km/h (1 mph) acceleration increments. To decrease a set speed, press and hold the speed control switch COAST until the target speed is reached, or momentarily tap the speed control switch COAST for 1.6 km/h (1 mph) deceleration increments. When the speed control system has been disabled by tapping the brake pedal, the speed control switch RESUME can be pressed and the vehicle will return to the original set speed if the vehicle is traveling over 48 km/h (30 mph) and the speed control switch OFF has not been pressed.
    NOTE: The deactivator switch is provided as an additional safety feature. Normally, when the brake pedal is pressed, an electrical signal from the brake lamp circuit to the speed control actuator will deactivate the system. Under increased brake pedal effort, the deactivator switch will open and remove power to the speed control actuator, releasing the throttle independently of the speed control actuator.
    NOTE: The clockspring provides the electrical interface between the steering column wiring and the speed control switches in the steering wheel.
    The inputs to the speed control actuator are:
    • Vehicle speed signal
    • Speed control switches
    • Brake pedal position (BPP) switch
    • Deactivator switch
    The outputs of the speed control actuator are:
    • Speed control indicator lamp
    • Speed control actuator cable controlling the throttle position
    • Inspection and Verification
      NOTE: If any concerns are noted with the speedometer, stoplamps, or horn, address those concerns by referring to the appropriate sections before continuing speed control diagnosis.
      1. Verify the customer concern by operating the speed control system.
      1. NOTE: Any aftermarket modifications, including but not limited to those listed below, may cause the speed control to not operate correctly:
        • Any wiring or lamp modifications affecting the brake lamp operation
        • LED brake lamps
        • Non-factory installed trailer wiring
        • Radios (speed sensitive, auto mute)
        • Remote starters and alarms
        • Lighting and electrical accessory modifications
        Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical or electrical damage:
        • Visually inspect the speed control actuator and accelerator controls.
        • Visually inspect the speed control cable without removing it and ensure smooth cable operation. Inspect the speed control cable connection to the throttle body.
        • Visually inspect the accelerator cable without removing it and ensure smooth cable operation. Inspect the accelerator cable connection to the throttle body. Also check for cable interference with the carpet, bulkhead grommet, insulation and instrument panel wiring.
      1. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage.

        • Speed control actuator cable
        • Throttle linkage
        • Battery junction box (BJB) fuse(s):

          • 12 (60A)
        • Smart junction box (SJB) fuses:

Which fuse control the engine fan on a 2001 mercury sable?


I believe these are found in the Power Distribution Box located under the hood towards the front of the engine compartment.
There's a Low Speed Fan Relay (24) and
A High Speed Fan Relay (32) with
A 40A Fuse (9) that controls both Relays.
I hope this helps.

Can't find backup light fuse for 2001 F350 ford pickup. It's not in the fuse panel box.


I suggest check in the Passenger Compartment Fuse Panel the position 28, 15AMP for Brake Shift Interlock, DRL Relay Coil, Speed Control Module, Backup Lamps, Trailer Tow Backup Lamp Relay Coil, Electronic Shift On The Fly Hub Lock Solenoid, Vacuum Pump Motor...

The fuse panel is located below and to the left of the steering wheel by the brake pedal. Remove the panel cover to access the fuses.

Hope this helps (remember to rate this answer).

01 grand.prix ac fan switch only works on high. has a duel temp controller when you turn fan off the only way fan comes back on is to move the temp controller levers


Hi!!
When the Blower Motor Resistor (controls blower speeds) goes bad, the blower motor works only on HIGH SPEED. REPLACE IT.
BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR Removal & Installation
  • Disconnect negative battery cable.
  • Remove right lower instrument panel insulator panel.
  • Disconnect blower resistor connector located behind right side of dash.
  • Remove blower resistor screws and blower resistor.
To install, reverse removal procedure
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa!!

I just replaced the front blower motor with a brand new one and still do not have any speed adjustment. the fuses are good and everything is hooked up correctly. the rear blower works fine. what to do...


There is a resistor located by the blower. It's purpose is to control the lower speeds. If you get the high speed and no lower speeds I would replace it. But if you are not getting any speeds then look at the control panel. I believe in yours you can replace just the speed switch and not the whole control panel.

My battery died and I replaced with a new one. Then my A/C did not work. I checked the fuses in the engine compartment and they appear to be fine. There is a 10Amp fuse in the console drivers side HTR A/C...


Speed control for the ac blower motor is maybe transistorized and has been shorted. Take that speed control out or unplug it. It is usually located on the blowere housing itself. If the fuse stops blowing when you unplug that speed control then it is the problem. Anyways the speed control may have three or more wires going into it. Comment back on it and I will try to help you on this one.

I have a 2001 Focus Zx3. The dashlights, parking


Sounds like a short circuit here ? You will need to locate the short circuit . Most probable is the tail lamps and their connections , then number plate lights , then any hinged wiring going from body to a door or trunk (ie No plate illum lights) area . Sometimes the dash dimmer can be a problem . Good luck

Cruise control not working


Fuse is marked "ASC" 10A Speed Control (passenger compartment fuse box), most likely this will not be the problem, and if th fuse blew then there is a short and it won't work, the most common cause is the cruise control switch circuit.
