Hi Mark, I had similar problem on my e46 compact. There are probably many possible causes. Mine was a faulty wheel speed sensor. You will need to read the fault codes. There is a brilliant mini bluetooth OBD2 device that simply plugs into the cars OBD2 socket and links via bluetooth to your smartphone or tablet. A free app from the Google Play Store called Torque Lite will the talk to the vehicle computer and tell you in plain English what the fault codes stored are and what they mean. In my case the rear offside wheel sensor had failed which also caused the ABS to become inactive and also the ASC light to come on. Oh BTW, the mini bluetooth OBD2 device is about a tenner on ebay. The OBD2 socket is located above the drivers knee and is similar is size and shape to a scart socket. I think the socket has a dust cover but mine had been broken off already
Best of luck. Brian

Cruise control isnt working what should i do to trouble shoot this problem


W/o year--make--model, I can't help. My database only covers vehicles sold in the US.
Maybe your fuse box or owners manual will tell you which fuse is which?
Any applicable trouble codes?

2008 Kia Spectra cruise control light comes on but will not set


Most likely your cruise control module has failed. Check your brake lights. If you have no brake lights, the brake pedal switch has failed. If that part fails, your cruise will not work. If everything is working fine, it's probably your module. I would also check the fuses, then plug in a scanner to see if you have any trouble codes. Is the speedometer working? If not the speed sensor is bad and needs replacement it is on the transmission.

Were do I start to trouble shoot cruise control that's not working


There are two cheap potential fixes to look at first. Since cruise is operated by electrical switches, it's possible the contacts have worn out or become corroded. Taking those apart for inspection and cleaning eliminates that possibility. You should also check the fuses related to the system, and if you have a multimeter, check that the wiring from the fuse box to the module is intact. (Set it to measure resistance: If there's a reading, the line is good; if there's no reading, the wire may be broken.)

I have a 93 Nissan pathfinder, the rear window defroster dosent work,how do i trouble shoot and repair it. also, i cant seem to get the cruse control to work, how do i trouble shoot and repair it. tha


The rear window defroster can be tested by checking for power out of the fuse box to the switch which operates a relay usually 4 pin 2 pins are the controlling side and the other 2 are battery power and the window element wire. Some switches have a led light in them that shows power is completed thru the switch . With a volt meter test wires at rear window some times if to many breaks in the grid stops the system from working. the cruise control has a servo with it's own throttle cable check for broken cable and check for engine vacuum to servo. then test switches on steering column with a ohm meter for proper continuity and test brake light switch.

My cruise control on my Chevy 2002 Impala will not work. Is it a fuse problem or other?


https://s3.postimg.org/kwm9a4n7n/cruise.jpg

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.

My cruise control doesnt work. could it b a fuse out?


CRUISE CONTROL PROBLEMS CAN BE CAUSED BY FUSE OR FAULTY BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH OR BLOWED FUSE TO BRAKE SWITCH.YOUR CRUISE CONTROL SWITCH COULD BE FAULTY.BEST TO TAKE CAR TO DEALERSHIP LET THEM HOOK CAR. TO DIAGNOSTIC EQUIPMENT.BECAUSE CRUISE CONTROL IS ELECTRONIC AND PCM CONTROL.THE CRUISE CONTROL SYSTEM USES INPUTS FROM VSS SENSOR .SO IT WOULD BE HARD TO FIX AT HOME YOU NEED EQUIPMENT TO FIX AND TROUBLE SHOOT.

Bulb on license plate is out and cruise control. 2004 cavalier


The two problems should not be related to one another. The the fuses for the park lights and the cruise control. The license plate bulb is wired along with the rest of your park lights. If the rest of the park lights are working then check for power and ground at the bulb holder. If you have both there, check the bulb and the fit again. If no power or ground is there you will have to trace the wires. If the fuse is not blown to the cruise control, more information is required to trouble shoot any further.

My cruise stopped working on my 1991 GMC Sierra 1500 while I was driving. I did a continuity test on the brake switch and it works fine. Any ideas?


Check your cruise control fuse or relay. It will be in your owners manual. If fuse is good than the cruise itself may be faulty. Check continuity on cruise controler itself. If there is power, than the controller itself is bad and need to be replaced. If there is no power than it may be a faulty switch.
