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.

The cruise control Resume/Accel switch is an input to the throttle actuator control (TAC) module. The TAC module uses the cruise control resume/accel switch signal circuit in order to detect when the driver has requested to accelerate the set vehicle speed or to resume the cruise control system. The TAC module detects a voltage signal on the cruise control resume/accel switch signal circuit when the switch is applied. The TAC module sends a serial data signal to the powertrain control module (PCM) via the UART serial data circuit. This DTC sets if the PCM receives a serial data signal from the TAC module indicating that voltage is present on the cruise control resume/accel switch signal circuit for longer than 90 seconds.

Does the vehicle have Throttle Actuator Control - electronic throttle control ?

My horn isn't working on a Chevy equinox but it's a new horn. What could be wrong with it..and my cruise control don't qork. Is it my steering wheel?

Was Cruise Control working before the New Horn was installed? The power supply to the Horn, (input to ground wire) is connected to the Cruise Control Module (CCM). This CCM is wired to the Relay Switch Box located in the Engine Bay. The Relay Box cover will have a Chart indicating what function each Relay coresponds to. Your local autoparts store (AutoZone) can test the Relay Switch, and you'll know (if any Relay) need to be replaced.

The CCM is also wired to the Steering Wheel, but first passes through the Clock Spring Coil, located just behind the Steering Wheel. The Clock Spring allowes for the Function Buttons on the Steering Wheel to have power while Steering Wheel spins.

The Clock Spring can malfunction or break, its rare, but this will cut power to the Function Buttons on Steering Wheel. If ALL the buttons on Steering Wheel dont work, then the Clock Spring is the Culprit. The Coil may need to be replaced.

The Cruise Control Module itself may have failed and also would cause a few or all Steering Wheel Functions to quit working.

But first check the Relay Switch Box and examine the Harness Cables connecting (Steering Wheel--to--CCM--to--Relay Switch Box--to--Battery Supply).

Also if Cruise Control was working before the new Horn was installed and now not working, then most likely the Problem is a bad wire connection somewhere and/or is a faulty Relay.

Cruise control stopped working on a 08 Chevrolet HHR

I just got the perfect answer to this yesterday. It's a $5 fix! Check your brake lights. If any of them are out, it will make the cruise control not function. Turns out all 4 of the 3rd set of brake lights were out. We replaced the 4 of them and the cruise control immediately became functional again. I got this tip from a gentleman in the service department at a local Chevy dealer.

My windsheild wipers and cruise control only work internitently. I replaced the multi function switch and the problem persists...

The cruise and the muilty funtion switch realy don't have that much to do with each other except the brake switch . Now if your rear lights are working and for that matter all of your lights are working . The problem is most likely that there is a second brake switch to shut off the cruise control when you apply the brakes thats the problem . Its located under the steering wheel looks like a square box 4x4 inches about 3/4 of an inch thick black plastic if you can follow the wires it hooks to the brake main switch. I ts derictly under the steering coloum its your problem

I have a 2005 Chevy Impala 3.4L. The cruise control quit working. The cruise control light on the dash will come on, but it will now engage. I have checked all the fuses. What would cause this?

It could be the cruise control unit (module) itself as these do burn out. A malfunctioning BCM (body control module) could also cause this. You should also check to find out if your 05 Impala has a recall as there are some defective models.

I have no brake lights, the blinkers run really fast and if the headlights are on the blinkers will not run at all while braking. Any ideas?

Have the multi-function switch and its circuits tested. The multi function switch is the blinker arm and the components its attached to in the steering wheel column. The multifunction switch has to do with blinkers, cruise control, wipers, wiper spray, high beams and also tied in with headlight dimmers/daytime running lights(if applicable) and hazards usually.

A good place to start.

Cruise control stopped working in our 1998 ford explorer can't find the problem and can't find a diagram of system to be able to check it.

Chances are that you will need to replace the Multi-Function switch. There is a common problem for Explorers to have the switch fail. A multi-function switch controls the cruise, wipers, blinkers and if even one item is not working then will still need to be replaced. Usually you can find a wiring diagram on Mitchell on Demand Do - It yourself website.

2004 chevy. Heated seats will not stay on.

See GM TSB 05-08-143-001, If you have Adjustable pedals, especially if they dont; work with the memeory buttons, but function with thier own buttons. Its the Brake Pedal Position Sensor is shorted and mesing up the seat module which controls the heaters too. My 05 Suburban had the same issue.
