Question about 2005 Nissan Altima
I have a 2005 Nissan Altima with a manual transmission. Lately the cruise control will turn on but it will not set at a given speed. I have tried various speeds, various gears and nothing seems to help. The "Cruise" light will come on and off when I push the button but the "Set" light will not come on and the car will not cruise. I have inspected all of the fuses and they are all fine. I don't know where all the vacuum lines run but everything looks to be in place under the hood. The car has about 70K miles and the computer was recently reprogramed by the dealership as part of a recall. Any help would be great!
I had a similar problem and I took my car to the dealer. They said that they have to tune the cancel switch of the cruise control and charged me $105. I don't know if I sent more or is it reasonable, but I got it working now. you can try at a local mechanic and see if they can do it for less. if not, just take it to the dealer, and they will fix it. it didn't take long for them to fix it, so obviously it is a small problem, but we don't know how to fix it.

I have to say I think it is going to be very difficult for you or any one one line to trouble shoot this particular problem.
The one thing you have in your favour here is that the computer was recently reprogrammed by the dealer. In this case I would take it back to the dealer and point out that you had the work done - tell them the cruise worked fine before they did that and that now it is not working.
You need to lay this at the dealers feet as something that has happened as a result of their work.
Has any check engine light been on ? If the vacuum lines were faulty I think you would have a check engine light on. It could also be the contacts in the Cruise control set switch though that are not for some reason working, which you could look at if the dealer declines to do anything - but I would seriously work the dealership first to have them fix it as something they have induced through previous work - you should not pay to correct something they have broken.
