In the fuse box driver side. If you pull out the panel covering the fuse box there is a decal inside behind the cover that should tell you what it fuse section does. There are ACC 1 and another section ACC 2. Or you can simply just pull out the fuses one at a time and see which one is burnt. If it burns out again, then you have a short. The fuses are clearly marked in the box to what they belong to. Example: Cig Lt (Cigarette Lighter) HD Lmp (Head Lamps) Etc.

You also need to check near the positive terminal of the battery the fuse links that are there. Perhaps the one that feeds the accessories portion is burnt. How do you know is burnt. Two orange ones, three green ones and one is black or grey. If is burnt, it will feel rubbery like or clearly show the burn by a black coloring or greyish coloring if its the black one. You can check them with a volt ohm meter for continuity from one end to the other. If you don't have a continuity reading the link is bad and needs to be replaced.n I eliminated all my fuse links and replaced them with fuse holder adapters where I can just change the fuse 10 amps or 15 amps depending on the circuit, but those only go if someone is messing with the circuit and accidentally shorts the circuit. Good Luck!

If the cruise lamp comes on and the cruise does not set i would advise inspecting the cruise cable and make certain it is not broken, if ok the the servo has likely failed.

Here a picture of the 2002 Dodge Intrepid cruise control unit. mustgo_28.jpg
I recommend you to clean it with PB Blaster spray /clean before starting trouble-shooting. mustgo_3.gif
Use small amount to wipe the cable and connector of the unit.
Make use the long cable is route correctly.
SEE the cable pathway for plastic ties and clips.
The last owner or service test may work on this area and forget to re-fasten the cable,
Look for damage on the cable and connector.
Check the accelerator linkage and cable for free play.
Check for free play around the throttle position sensor (TPS).
Check for missing ties / clips on the cruise control system.
DO NOT rule out a worn actuator (round unit) on cruise control system.

Please keep me posted on the fix via email.

2010 Nissan Pathfinder Cruise Control issues

First I'll assume you haven't read the owners Manuel, Cruise control is not perfect on any vehicle. if coming to a hill put foot on gas to help rpm, going down hill put foot on brake to keep same speed, cruise control operates off of engine vacuum. Speed sensors can be affected by putting on smaller or bigger tires than what is on drivers door.

The cruise control light comes on but it does not engage. It's a 1995 pathfinder.

If your light comes on but the cruise control does not engage you may have a vacuum leak some where. When you set your cruise control your vehicle uses vacuum to maintain speed and if you have a vacuum leak this can not happen. Try checking all of your vacuum lines. I hope this helps.

Cruise control

this is happening because once you shut it off you are sending an electronic signal to transmission and it resets itself once car starts back up as if something inside the ecm has been reprogrammed and erased alll over again. the ecm is your brain which controls your car. get a diagnostic scan ran on it ok?

I have a problem with the "cruise control" from my Nissan

Hi, replace the resume/accel switch. I've seen alot of failures on this. If it still doesn't work, the cruise control module is the only thing that can possibly cause this problem. It's located in the left rear quarter panel behind the spare tire and plastic trim.
