There are two speed sensors, one in the usual location and a second one in the instrument pod. Both must be working or you will experience the abrupt cut out. I had a 1990 Prelude with the same problem. The factory-trained Honda technician could not find the second sensor but eventually replacement of the entire instrument pod solved the problem

SOURCE: cruise control

Try to clean/change the brake switch. The switch is positioned at the brake pedal. On Accord 2003 it can be very easily removed by anti-clockwise rotation of the switch. You can replace the switch with a new one or you can clean the contacts of the old one, since the switch can be dismantled very easily.

SOURCE: 2005 Honda Accord 4cyl cruise control does not work

check all your fuses first then take a look at the brake switch and there is a criuse cancel switch also, i think there may be a problem with the switch,even if the cancel switch was bad i think the power would still stay on but cruise would just stop and power would stay on. check fuses and switches anyway to be sure then take a look at the power switch.

Cruise control not working


The main cause for this problem is failure to maintain a set speed. Check the cruise control fuse. If the cruise control system fails to maintain the set speed, check the throttle linkage adjustment. Use your manual for this. Honda Accords parts would help you to buy other Honda Accord parts in good price.

How can i activate my cruise control in my 2004 grand cherokee


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.

How to use cruise control


Here are the steps in using cruise control:

  1. Get on a road you will be traveling at the same speed for a long period of time, such as a freeway.
  2. Reach your desired speed. Choose a speed that allows you to move with the flow of traffic and not go over or under the designated speed limit for that road.
  3. Locate the ON and SET buttons on your steering wheel. Press ON first and SET after. Your cruise control is now activated. Most vehicles must be traveling at least 30 miles per hour to set the cruise control.
  4. Press and hold the SET button if you wish to use cruise control at a higher speed. Hold until your desired speed is reached.
  5. Decrease speed by pressing the COAST button.
  6. Push the brake pedal to disengage the cruise control function. If you wish to return to the previous set speed, use the RES (resume) button. You must be traveling at least 30 miles per hour for this function to resume.
  7. Erase any previous speed by pressing the OFF button.

Speedometer not working


Does it hang out at 18-20MPH, regardless of your speed?
Mine did the same thing. The problem was an open circuit inside the gauge itself, and there's no repair for the parts. You'll need to get a replacement speedometer gauge, or simply buy a replacement instrument cluster.


If it's not doing the "20mph" thing, then it's possible that you just need a new engine speed sensor. This is located on the rear of the engine block, and is hard but not impossible to reach and replace.

One way to test is to set the car on cruise control when the speedometer is working. If the speedometer cuts out ,but the cruise is still able to maintain your speed, then the sensor is OK and the problem is the gauge. If the cruise control also cuts out, then the sensor is bad.

Cruise control not working


there are 2 possible parts here, one is a transmission speed sensor, this part tells the cruise what speed u set and keep it there, the other is the the actual actuator that holds the throttle at the right position to maintain set speed, other less common issue's make sure the brake and clutch (if manual trans only) cruise cut off switche's are ok

The cruise control on my 1993 Honda Accord LX, automatic 4 cylinder works sometimes and sometimes not. It worked three days ago. It wouldn't work the next day. The following day it would. Now it won't...


Sounds like possibly a safety switch associated with the brake or shifter is engaging intermittently. There is definitely one behind the brake because when you apply the brake the cruise kicks out. Try looking for this switch and check it out.

How to set cruise control


cruise control on your escape will work at 30 mph and up. Press 'on 'button, then press gas pedal 'til u reach desired speed, press 'set acc' and you'll be cruisen. You can also do it this way, press 'on' button, then press and hold 'set/acc' button, car will accelerate, let go of button when u reach desired speed. Putting on brakes will deactivate cruise, u can then press 'RSM' to resume speed.
