Your cruise won't engage because your brake lights are on permanently.
These are on permanently probably because your brake switch is faulty.
It's located near the top of your brake pedal.

Try diconnecting the battery for a minute or so, then reconnect it. the computer should reset itself, and hopefully the light will go out.

FROM LUSTY KID:

Check your bulbs first, I have lost both headlights on my ford at once on account of the bulbs burning out at the same time. Same thing probably happen, you have one filament out. The lights can work, but if the filament for brake is burnt, you don't see brake lights.

As for the cruise control. Check fuse box first. If OK check vacuum hose to actuator in engine compartment for starters.

Or you could just pull the fuse for the abs and not have abs but you won't wreck from pulsating pedal.

Intermittent Cruise Control Issue - cuts out when small bump in road is hit and may or may not re-engage after that.


Check the wire connector that plugs into the cruise control under the hood. Sounds like a loose connection. Remove the and reinsert the wire connector several times to make a better connection. Stepping on the brake pedal disengages the cruise control by a switch on the brake pedal, not the computer.

I have two 2003 corollas that neither cruise control will work even though the green cruise light comes on


Check the cruise servo under the hood...usually on the driver side of the car...there should be a cable that either comes from the throttlebody or comes out of the firewall and connects to the servo..most are vacuum operated and the diaphragm becomes brittle and leaks air over time.

I have a 1996 Ecoline van "Shasta" motorhome. My problem is that the Hazard lights,turn signals,cruise control,and brake lights do not work,all of a sudden. I check all the apropriate fuses and they a


Some vehicles, especially vehicles that use the same lights for brake and turn signal, the brake lights must go through the turn signal switch. If your cruise is on the same switch, I would check your connection under the steering column. If you tilt the column up to get out of the vehicle, you may have unplugged the harness or broken the wires at the tilt point.

My back break lights isnt working and front head lights are they both connected


If both are not working, check your brake light fuse and then bulbs for burnt filaments. If ok, could be wiring or brake light switch located at the back of the brake pedal. To eliminate the switch, if your car is equipped with cruise control, try to engage it and if it works, the switch is good, if not, switch is bad as the cruise control needs a good working brake switch to engage the cruise.

Have a problem with intermittent cruise control on my 2007 Honda Civci Sedan. Took it to the dealer 2x, still have issues. "Main Cruise Control" lit on dash but cruise control intermittently will not...


cruise control operation is reliant on the following
road speed sensor ( speedo or VSS sensor )
engine rpms tacho/ ignition coil/module problem
clutch pedal sensor (VSS in automatic )
gear selection position sensor ( not properly adjusted causing flickering of the selector light)
brake pedal sensor
bad ground wire connections
r all need to work together or the CC will stop working
nothing to do with vents and all that you mentioned.
wire connections and harness connections for the transmission are suspect
CC will not operate under certain engine rpms and road speed

Cruise control will not engage even though the indicator on the Cruise on/off switch is illuminated.


Check that your brake lights are staying off. Brake light switch will put your cruise control into coast mode.

2003 Honda accd Cruise control power won't stay on


With the car turned off and the battery disconnected, root around under the dash and find the wiring harness that comes down from the steering column. You may have to remove a dash panel or two to get at it. It should be connected to the car's main wiring harness with a plug of some sort. Disconnect the plug.

Using a multi-meter set to test continuity, test pairs of pins in the connector from the steering column, pressing the CC switch with each pair, until you find the pair that come from the CC switch.

Isolate the wires for these two pins behind the plug and scrape away a tiny bit of insulation with a knife blade, being careful not to cut through the wire. Test the wire pair again to be sure you've got the CC switch wires.

Cut the wires, leaving several inches of wire above the plug to work with. Using a good quality crimp connector (or soldering, if you know how and have the equipment), connect the two wires you just cut loose (the two coming from the plug, not the steering column).

Make sure there are no bare wires *anywhere* when you're done. Cover everything with heat shrink tubing or electrical tape, then use a tie-wrap to bind all the wires together again. Return the wiring harness to where you found it and re-install any dash panels you had to remove.

Reconnect the battery and go for a drive. The CC switch will be totally out of the circuit, but your CC should be permanently turned on.

Now here's the fun part. You'll have an extra momentary-contact switch on your steering wheel that's not doing anything. Just think of the possibilities... You could use it for an auxiliary air horn like on a semi-truck, or you could wire it into your brake lights so you could screw with tail-gaters without actually stepping on the brakes. Look for the switch somewhere on your brake pedal assembly and add two wires from the old CC switch to the contacts on the brake pedal switch.
