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.

SOURCE: Liberty 2006 : Cruise control and fog lamps are

It sounds like your multifunction switch has an internal failure and needs to be replaced. This is the part that you flip to use the turn signals, wipers, cruise control, fog lamps, etc. This can be an expensive part, but it is almost certainly the cause of your concern.

Let me know if you'd like to know how to replace it. It is a fairly easy part to replace.

Hope this helps!

Where is cruise control relay located, I turned my cruise control on but it will not engage.


Take a good hard look at the question you just asked and then tell us what CRITICAL information is missing

Where is the cruise control relay located?


What kind of testing have you done on the cruise control system? Are there any applicable trouble codes for the cruise control system? Some of the national brand auto stores will check codes for free. Do the brake lites work?
According to the wiring diagram I looked at, there is no relay.

Click on the link, part of cruise control circuit, you can see the fuses. Not only check the fuses, use a test lite to check voltage on fuse circuit, goes hot with key on.
Make sure the brake lites work?
Check applicable trouble codes relating to cruise control. There are other possible issues.

Cruise control not engaging


Hi there,

As you have not stated the Model of Chev, nor the Year of Manufacture, I will give you some general possibilities:

* Blown fuse
* Short or open in Cruise Control circuit
* Faulty brake switch
* Leaking vaccuum circuit
* Faulty cruise control switch
* Faulty stepper motor
* Faulty transducer
* Faulty speed sensor
* Faulty cruise control module

As with all electrical circuits, you should first check the FUSE.

However, from experience, the most common cause of inoperative Cruise control are:

Brake pedal switch: check that tail lights illuminate when depressing the brake pedal. If not, then replace the brake pedal switch (located up on the brake pedal assembly).

Brake pressure switch: depending on which model Chev you have, there is an electrical switch (look for wires) screwed into the brake cylinder (attached to the brake booster). This switch is a cruise system backup from the pedal switch and measures brake fluid pressure, to disengage the cruise control. When this switch fails, the Cruise Control will not engage. If you have a multimetre, you can test the resistance on the switch terminals (ask Chev for the correct resistance spec) - if not to specification, then replace the switch.

Cruise control release valve: this is the alternative to the brake pressure switch and is also mounted on the brake pedal, above the brake switch. This switch is designed to disengage the cruise control, just like the pressure switch. If you have a multimetre, you can test the spec of this switch (ask Chev for the correct test procedure & specs) - if not to specification, then replace the switch.


NOTE: depending on the year of your vehicle, your local Chev Dealership will be able extract the Cruise Control fault codes, stored in the Cruise Control Computer. This is always the fastest (and cheapest) way to identify the suspected component and will eliminate unnecessary "trial and error" labor costs. This test cannot be done by your typical garage and must be entrusted to your Chev approved service agent only, who will have the correct Scan Tool.

to turn on the fog lights, its the same switch that you use to turn on your head lights. Turn the dial to the right to turn on your head lights and then pull it towards you. thats how you turn your fog lights on
