Chevys with cruise control won't work when light switch is turned on. That is normal. the





The NTSB(National Transportation Safety Board)doesnt reccomend using Cruise Control  on any motor vehicle when driving in low light conditions, so Chevrolet designed most Cruise Control units to turn off when you turn your headlights on. To prove this for yourself, turn your Cruise Control on during the daytime, make sure Cruise is working andthen turn on your headlights. Your Cruise Control will immediately diengage. Now turn your headlights off and restart your Cruise Control. Your Cruise Control should work  properly.If your vehicle is equipped with DRL(Daylight Running Lights), These lights will not affect your Cruise Control.My '98 Chevy Express Van works the same way. You can also verify this through your local Chevy dealer.

Cruise control wont engage after restarting vehicle


The fact that the light comes on is a good indication that the electronics are working, the most common problem is a vacumn leak. This can be a damaged or cracked vacumn line, a bad check valve, or the dump switch on the brake pedal

What causes my cruise controll to not work intermittenly


cruise control starts working above 50kmh, so if your under that it wont work. the cruise servo may be at fault, or I have seen battery acid leak down on the vacuum lines causing cruise not to work correctly. cruise control works off of a vacuum so without it, it wont work. if the cruise light doesn't turn on when pressing the set/cruise button intermitantly it may be the switch itself that is starting to fail

Ford focus cruise control


Once you have turned your cruise control on accelerate to desired speed press SET button on right hand side of steering wheel before lifting foot from accelerator, then remove foot from accelerator. pushing RESUME button will deactivate cruise control without turning it off. Then when clear of traffic push resume again to activate cruise control. It will automatically resume to previous set speed.

My Cruise Control Wont work, is there a special way to turn on the cruise, because the sign for cruise comes up but it doesnt cruise


First, your car must be in gear and driving approx more than 60 km an hour
Secondly, using the Cruise Stalk switch turn the Cruise on, the dash should now have a lit icon for cruise power (green).
Once you have the desired speed, gently press the button on the end of the cruise in to set your speed. Remove foot from throttle and confirm cruise is active. Another dash light should come on as well (orange)

Failing that, if it doesnt work the usual suspect like fuses and the brake pedal micro switch should be looked at...

97 honda accord v6 luxury cruise control not working


Yes, it probably is the brake switch. It must be working properly for the cruise control to work. If the part you got did not come from a car with cruise control, it will only have two electrical posts and not the four that you need.
If it is the right part, it must be turned in until the button is pushed completely, but not so far that it begins to actuate the master cylinder. Please report your results.
