Hi all,
I had intermittent cruise control at first. Stomping on the brake seemed to help for quite some time.
Since then, the stomping is doing nothing.
I replaced the switches on the steering wheel. Nothing.
I replaced the brake light switch... Nothing.
Does anyone have any idea what could have happened to my cruise control?
Thank you in advance.
Thomas

There could be a problem with the clock spring. Or perhaps there is a problem with the transmission range switch. Or the vehicle speed signal.
A decent scan tool would tell you if those circuits are working properly. Speaking of scan tools, have you checked for trouble codes?

If I helped you fix it, why not...

Your support is greatly appreciated

I have a reader. Haven't looked for codes yet.
Would this show up on a reader?

I think you'd need a more advanced, dealer level, scan tool to do any further diagnosis.

Ok. So take it to the dealer.
Thank you for your help. I appreciate it.

Sounds like clockspring. I have intermittent problems with mine as well, a quick honk of the horn fixes it for the rest of the drive. I bought a cheap clockspring from China, I'll eventually get around to install it and see what happens.

That is so funny. I read that someone else was honking the horn before setting cruise, so I thought I would give it a try. OMG! It works. So, it is definitely the clock spring for me now. I will look at having that replaced at some point but I am happy to honk the horn for now. 😁

LOL...I'll have to add horn honking into my bag of diagnostic tricks for cruise control faults. I would never have thought to try that. I love it when I pick up a wee tip like that on the forum.
