Question about 1999 Honda GL 1500 Aspencade Gold Wing

Cruise control switch causes the indicator on the dash to activate but the set feature does not work nor does that dash light go on. I tested the connection block under the seat as the manual said and the test light showed all the switches working.

My 1998 GW has a Motor trike kit on it. About 3 yrs ago the cruse stopped working. All switches have been replaced to include all the brake,clutch and handle bar switches. According to the test lights they all work.
Could my problem be in the vacuum hose system or the control modules?

Cruise control will not set 06 yamaha royal star dash lights work?

The most common issue with this symptom (assuming all fuses are good) is a bad brake light switch or clutch lever switch. These are the de-activate controls for the cruise system and it will not set if one of these switches is faulty.

Try checking the small switch at the top of the brake pedal. There may be two one for brake lights and one for the cruise control. To ascertain what is what, pull one wire off and see if brake lights work.

If so, depress pedal and check power on the other side there should be none, if there is the switch is defective.

Fix cruise control switch on brake pedal

You'll need to repace the switch itself if it is defective. These are available at most auto-parts stores, and looking at the switch itself will help in determining what you actually need to do in removing it. It fits into a set position on the side of the dash nearest to the driver, just in front of the brake pedal arm, and is operated by pressing on the brake pedal, which causes the switch to make contact internally and pass voltage through to the brake light or to the cruise control system.

To remove, disconnect wiring harness, remove the front retaining nut and once it's removed, slide the switch out of the mount, just compare the new switch to the old one to make sure they are the same, then reinstall after putting the nuts & washers at approximately the same location on the new one, once installed, test the adjustment by making sure the brake light is not on without the brake pedal being pushed, then check the cruise control, it should engage properly as well as disengage when you press on the brake pedal. Adjustments are made by adjusting the mounting position either forwards or backwards with the mounting hardware.

If you are having problems with this, verify the voltage coming into one side of the switch with the pedal not being pressed, then the voltage should pass through the switch, when the brake pedal is pressed. On a dual switch (see below) ground voltage goes through the Cruise control part of the switch-depending on the model, but on either type, removing the connection from the switch and verifying continuity when the switch is activated will determine if it is working properly, as long as the switch breaks continuity when not being activated.

Some of these switches are dual purpose, working both the brake light and the cruise control, some are individual switches with one for each, and on some cars, the brake light switch works for both the cruise and the brake light.

Good luck.

Cruise control will not turn on. light on dash use to come on. cruise will not work. checked fuse it is ok

Did you have the recall for the cruise control done ?
recall 05S28. Description: Speed Control Deactivation Switch.

It could be the fuse in the recall harness is blown.

Try the Cruise Control Self test :
Self-Test Diagnostics

This test is a key on engine off (KOEO) test only that is conducted in park only with emergency brake fully engaged.

1. Enter self-test diagnostics by depressing the speed control OFF switch while turning the ignition key ON, making sure the engine does not start and is not running. The speed control indicator on the instrument panel will flash once to indicate that speed control module entered the diagnostic mode. Five additional flashes at this point indicate a defective speed control servo. Release the OFF switch.

2. Press the remaining switches in this sequence: ON, RESUME, COAST and SET/ACCEL.

If the ON switch is not depressed within five seconds after entering the diagnostics mode, the module times out and the procedure must be started over.

The speed control indicator lamp will flash as each switch is depressed. Press each switch in the sequence immediately after the indicator light goes out for the previous switch.

There will be a slight delay when the last button is pressed and the lamp flashes.

3. A lamp flash with the last button (SET/ACCEL) indicates that the static test passed. If the lamp does not flash with the last button and there are no additional flashes of the lamp, the switch is defective.

If the lamp does not flash with the last button, and additional flashes occur, follow the chart below for trouble codes:

— 2 flashes - BPP defective, circuit is defective, brake applied, CPP switch or jumper (if equipped).

— 3 flashes - deactivator switch is open or circuit defective.

— 4 flashes - vehicle speed signal is out of range or circuit is defective

4. Immediately (.25 second delay) after the static test, the speed control servo does a dynamic test by automatically actuating the throttle lever from 8 mm (0.315 in) to 12 mm (0.472 in) of travel from the idle position. During the dynamic throttle pull, observe throttle movement to witness any binding or sticking of the speed control cable and correct connection of speed control cable to throttle lever. Make sure the throttle returns to the idle position.

5. Return the ignition switch to the OFF position and proceed to the Symptom Chart.

If the Cruise Control does not enter self test, the fuse in the recall harness ( if done ) is most likely blown and needs to be replaced.

2001 Dodge stratus cruise control dosen't work

One thing to check is the micro switch on the brake pedal arm, I had the same problem.
For some reason the switch came loose and it wasn't being depressed.
All I had to do is re adjust it so it would depress the plunger on the switch when the brake was not applied and activate the switch when the brake pedal was depressed.
I set it to the sensitive side so when you barley tap the brake pedal it shuts off the cruise control.

Hope this helps.
