Cruise Control

For the first time in 23 years when I tried to engage the cruise it didn’t work. I have only checked the fuse which is good. Maybe the switch on the stalk just wore out? What are the usual suspects when this happens?

cruise control in-op

FYI-A burned out tail light bulb or CHMSL will keep the cruise from engaging.

If the wiring/circuit check out fine, then it may be the module itself. If you troubleshot this to that point, then you may find this info helpful...

Still no luck as I tried cleaning the contacts. I looked at the link above which was good as far as it goes. Shows the disassembly of the unit but no trouble shooting or ideas of possible problem areas.

How many miles on the car/unit? These modules have plastic gears. I have 2 modules with worn out gears. I have used the cruise control heavily on my Impala and wore out the original unit.

There is a comprehensive and easy to follow troubleshooting tree for the cruise in the FSM. Test something: yes/no, move on to next test. Just with a voltmeter. It will solve the problem in about ten min.

Old cars, just like classic rock... 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s!
