Cruise control will not 'set' on '05 kia sportage

Hi,

Everything was ok until 1 month ago, when the green cruise light came on, but would not set the speed. Also the ESP traction control light comes on and says 'off''; this started at the exact same time as the cruise control quit working. At that time I was driving 75mph on the interstate when I first noticed light (ESP light) without touching the ESP button and then the cruise wouldn't set...

fuses in box seem ok, any ideas???

thanks lots

Erin

Check the brake lighf bulbs. If even one is burnt out, it throws the sensors.
Had the same problem replaced both bulbs and now the esp light stays off and the cruise control sets.

I had the same problem. It was a bad brake switch at the brake pedal. They replaced mine and I have no more problems with it.

I also had another issue with the cruise control when I first got the car. It turned out that a tail light was burned out and that was keeping it from setting.

Good luck!

    Thanks for the help. I was having same problem and turned out both my brake lights were out (thankfully still had strip light at the top). Replaced lights and can now set cruise. Will have to wait and see about ESC OFF light because it doesn't always come on. The connection between cruise and brake lights doesn't make sense to me but glad it happened because who knows how long til I realized I had no brake lights! So glad I read this question and saved a trip to nearest KIA which is 90 miles away.

Sounds to be maybe a vacuum line leaking or broken,or maybe the switch on your steering column is faulty

Answer for the guy that stalls on turns. Your problem is on O-ring and should be covered thru a recall.

My cruise control on my 2001 Kia Sportage stopped working.


Check your repair manual where the vacuum hoses for the cruise controls are (engine bay). Maybe one of the hoses came off or has a leak.

Kia sportage diesel acceleration problem


Do you have any check engine lights on? Most diesels have a safety feature that shuts down the engine and puts it in "limp mode" when there is a problem somewhere . It will stay in limp mode till repaired and the code cleared. You should get a code with a diagnostic.

You can check the fuse but I would lean more towards the set button being bad.

Cruise control doesnt work


I know this sounds crazy, but have you checked to see if all of your lights illuminate? My 2007 Sportage had a burned out brake light, then the cruise dtopped working also. I thought it was just getting ready to start systematically breaking down, piece by piece. As soon as I replaced the brake light, however, the cruise instantly began working again! I figured it was some strange way of Kia letting me know if I was missing a brake light. No guarantees, but it might be worth cheking out.

Cruise control light comes on but will not set. as soon as 80km is reached light goes out and will not come on again untill ignition is switched off. Brake lights all working fine. 2009 Kia Sportage...


Well Im hoping that by telling you to check your cruise control wiring and vacuum routing for broken, unplugged wires or vacuum hoses you just might find that a simple vacuum line is in need of attention. good luck

I have a Kia sportage 2006 and the cruise control is not working it comes on but will not set. i also have found that my ESP light is coming on after 5 miles.


The ESP was a recall,the dealer will honor that if you havent had it done.The cruise I had the same problem replaced it and its starting to go bad again. I think soon we will find it to be a recurring problem in all sportages.
