I bought this pathy 3 months ago. The speedometer, and cruise control did not work. The light on the switch and the dash did not work. I replaced the speed sensor on the transfer case and everything worked for like a week. Just one trip out of town the speedo works and the switch light comes on when you flip it. However, the "cruise" light on the dash does not come on and cruise does not "set" at all. Any Ideas?
Possibly a fuse if you haven't checked, My MAX a/c switch wouldn't light up or work so I looked at the fuses and the wrong fuse was in the blower and cig lighter so I changed them and the a/c is working perfectly so check to make sure the fuses are the correct ones or they possibly wont work!!!

i also have a 99v70. As i was driving the car home 2 days ago in cruise control. Suddenly the speedo dropped to '0'. The cruise control quit and the abs, upshift arrow, and check engine light came on. The solutions is the 'abs control unit' From Volvo; 870.00 from Advance; 256.00 w/ core exchange. Its fixed all those dash issues.good luck
. Hello, "arthur o'neill". Your car has parts under the hood to engage and control the throttle. Those parts, as well as others, such as the speedometer, and its cable must all be working properly, for cruise control to work. Either take it a mechanic, or get a 'shop manual', for your particular model.
I have the same problem on my 1998 Grand Caravan. Cruise control light comes on but it will not set. Have had the clock spring replaced (2 years ago) and BCM (6 months ago). Could be brake light switch on the brake pedal. Haven't been able to check it yet because of weather. Sounds easy to change and costs about $16.00. Will try to post if I get a new switch and it works.
Faulty product. I install cruise control for 6 years. One of the cables are hooked into the throttle and the other in the vaccuum actuator, since it is electronically controlled actuator, the object itself might be losing it's contents or frankly worded, is taking a nose dive. works much like a brake booster does.
Is it a PID system? (Proportional integral derivative system)
or is it just standard proportional?
That will play a factor.
If you just have one of those cheesy controls (cruise controls), than replace it, obviously it wouldnt of cost much. if it is not, check the actuator and replace it! Replace the Fuse, brush it with wire brush, clean up all connections.
You should be ready to roll!
here are two switches that are the usual causes of the cruise kicking
out. they are both under the dash. One is the switch for the brake
lamps (stop light switch). the other is for the clutch if you have a
if you follow the brake pedal up under the dash you'll find two
switches at the top of the pedal. (it may be one switch but I think its
two). the top one would be for the cruise control. if the switch is
loose it will cause the cruise control to think you're stepping on the
brake and that will disengage the cruise control
same with the clutch pedal if you have a manual transmission; if the
switch is loose it will indicate you are pushing the clutch pedal in
and cause the cruise to kick out
other than that you'll have to check all of the connectors. If it does
engage then the fuses and actuators should be good and it would be a
loose connector or switch that's kicking it out
also, i assume your speedometer works; if its not then that's your problem as the cruise won't engage under 30 mph
