Question about 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Cruise control Turns off intermittantly

I bought this jeep yesterday. The cruise control turns off when I try to set the speed. It then will not come back on unless I turn off the Jeep and start it back up. It worked for a day and then just started doing this.. I don't believe it is vacuum related, I think it is Cruise switch related.. But I wanted to throw it out there and see what you guys thought.

    I am at the 75,000 mile mark on my 2006 Laredo and I just began having this problem. The description is accurate. Briefly before I had this problem, when I tried to set the cruise speed and let off the accelerator, the car would speed up and I would press on the brakes when it got to about 10 MPH over my set point. It would only take a couple seconds for this to happen as the Jeep would accelerate quickly. This happened 2/3 times before it just stopped working all together.

SOURCE: Cruise control Turns off intermittantly

You're probably not gonna like this answer, but hwen it comes to electrical problems, you really do need to take it to a garage/mechainc that you trust.

I know I couldn't talk you through what you need to do to fix it, especailly with the Jeep not right in front of me.

If you bought the Jeep from a dealer, take it back there right now, and tell them the cruise troubles you're having...most dealers will fix the problem even on aused car because they want the good news to travel that they took care of you.......they don't want anyone walking around with bad things to say about them.

Good Luck, let us know what ahppens, okay?

SOURCE: my cruise control will suddenly stop working and the cruise light

I had a similar problem and it turned out to be the brake fluid level. This may be an answer. Also have you had the brakes checked. The cruise control is integrated with the brakes. Any little thing wrong with them effects the cruise.

How do you activate the cruise control on a Mercedes ML 270 cdi.


If you know how to set your speed limiter. To set your cruise control, press the stalk in (to the right). The orange light on your dash should go out and you're ready to set your cruise control. You can start the cruise control by either moving the cruise control stalk up or down. Once you start the cruise control you can move the stalk up or down to increase or decrease your cruise speed. You can move it toward you to shut off the cruise control. You can press it in again to go back to the speed limiter. I hope this helps.

The cruise control switches are located on the steering wheel. When the cruise control is turned on there will be a green light luminated on the dash that says "cruise". When at the desired speed press "set" to set the cruise control at that speed.

Location of the cruise control fuse in a 1995 jeep cherokee


Check this out also...the schematic is too small to see which fuse it is in the engine compartment Power Distribution Center (the fuse box). Is your cruise control not working?

Cruise Control The Cruise Command system is electrically actuated and vacuum operated. The turn signal lever on the steering column incorporates a slide switch which has three positions OFF, ON or RESUME. A SET button is located in the end of the lever. This device is designed to operate at speeds above approximately 35 mph (56 km/h).
The speed control module automatically controls throttle position to maintain a speed set by the operator. The vehicle will keep the set speed unless the driver presses the brake, clutch or accelerator pedal.

I have a 2008 Honda CRV and for the life of me I cannot engage the Cruise control- I press the Cruise Button on the right of the steer wheel and nothing happens - nothing Help anyone ? Tks Nancy


The cruise-controls have 2-buttons that must be activated before it gets the car going when you remove your foot off the gas-pedal.
The cruise button is essentailly a switch that turns 'on' the cruise servo-motor that tells the sytems that you wants to use it, so it gets ready.
There are other three switches on the right-side of the steering wheel namely: resume accel; cancel; set decel.
To get your car to cruise: you must steady your speed and foot on the gas-pedal. You cannot just press the switches and expect the car to cruise. It takes about two-to-three seconds for the system to respond to a set cruising speed.
How to do it: accelerate to a speed of about 30-mph. Press the 'cruise' button on the dash first. Next you press 'set decel' button. This will turn 'on' the cruise control light on the instrument panel. Then wait a second or three and you would feel the cruise engagement. Any touch on the brake pedal will slow down the car and turns the cruise off. The 'cancel' button turns off the cruise light on the instrument panel.
If you hit the brake-pedal at any time for any reason, and you would like to continue cruising again, simply press the 'resume accel' button.
The cruise system works in conjunction with the braking system of the car. So all major parts of the braking system must be in good condition, otherwise the cruise system could shut off itself.

If set at a specific speed and you have to slow down by hitting the brakes, The brakes turn off the cruise control. Pressing resume automatically turns the cruise control back on and accelerates to the previous speed setting. You can also use it to accelerate and by releasing it the new speed will be set.

What is Cruise Control and O/D


Cruise control allows the driver to push a button thereby setting and holding the car's current speed. This allows you to take your foot off the acceleratot pedal and "cruise." Modern "Cruise" systems also have added feature like increasing or decreasing your speed, and coasting so that you can adjust your speed for traffic or road conditions without exiting the cruise function. Touching the brake pedal automatically turns the cruise function off; or you can exit by turning cruise button to "off" at the touch of your thumb or fingertips. Cruise helps on long trips by reducing fatigue, and keeps you from going over the speed limit by setting your speed to the posted limit.

Hope this helps. I will address overdrive in another post. Thanks, TaterTodd
