    Yes,the switch on the fairing is still on and that indicator light is on but the indicator light showing cruise in RPM gauge goes out and the cruise stops working.

    Okay, there are a lot of possibilities here so stay with me. First I need to know your level of experience with the Ultra. Do you do your own maintenance, have you ever taken the outer fairing off, etc. Let me know that and we will go from there, ok?

    What do you mean? Are you saying that after you turn the cruise control on and set the speed, it turns itself off after a few seconds?

On your throttle cables on the left side of the bike at front of the bike just ahead of the gas tank you will see a "bulge" where the connector is for cable position/sensor plugs in. check this connection first, clean it, etc. plug things back in and test it.
Please post and let us know if this helps.

2000 ultra classic cruise control failure

Hi Cckids, diagnosing cruise control issues is very complex and requires specific drop down menu diagnostics that are extremely time sensative and precise. These procedures should only be performed by a trained experienced professional. I would take your bike to your local dealer for an estimate. Good luck and have a nice day.
