Cruize Control

Recommended Posts

My cruise control has been out for some time since I got some ehem, serivce work done etc. Last time they said it was fine, maybe from a diag on the ps2 machine or whatever dunno. In any event the light turns green when the switch is engaged but nothing does anything when I try to engage it by the lever etc. Any ideas? I would think it was just a connector left off or something? thanks it would be nice to have that fixed and not pay the stinking dealer an arm and a leg to do so. Sean

There is a switch right above the brake pedal that is probably pushed in. The switch should be touching the pedal arm when the pedal is not compressed. Sometime this switch gets pressed in too far into the locked position. Pull it out towards the pedal and test it to make sure that you can press it in a little and that it returns to the out position when you let go. If this switch is pushed in all the way, all Cruise Controls will look normal but will not work.

So I put that spring back in the connector and put it back together. It appeared that it was off the cluch pedal however. There weren't any contacts on the brake pedal at all. I assume somehow that is the one though. I will let you know when I go for a drive today thanks.

Test the switch. Pull the piston out towards the pedal and it should work. If the cruise control indicator is on, chances are that it is NOT anything else buy the switch. Test it for continuity. By the way...the swicth IS above the brake pedal (at least in my 99) If it not there, then maybe that's your problem. This switch should be touching the pedal when the brakes are not pressed. If it is not, then it is stuck in the off position...pull it out.

I did find that switch unfortunately I pressed the pedal enough so it became so stiff that I couldn't check it again! :( I guess it would help if the ebrake was off etc. IN any event I will check it again today and then check the cruize on the drive to school

An old Question,but as I had the same problems,I wanted to contribute.On my Europe--98 modell

manual,there is 2 switches-1 above the Clutchpedal,and 1 over the brakepedal.Both should be PRESSED IN when the pedals are not used.These Switches have Bayonett fittings,just like the bulbs for example brakelight.Just turn them a quarter of a turn,and you can take them out.To test their function,press them all

the way in,and fixate them in that position with some Tape,and let them hang loose.Go for a drive-If

cruisecontrol works,You only have to PULL OUT the head of the contacts-You will hear how it "clicks"

when you do this.Now compress the clutch pedal-insert the contact-turn it in the "locked position",and

GENTLY release the pedal.The contact will now get automatcqally adjusted to the right length.Do the

same with the brake pedal.On my car both had no contact when depressed.You could ofcourse just

press the pedals down,insert a small screwdriver behind the head of the contact,and lever the contacts out

before you release the pedals,but as it is a little bit awkward to reach the contacts,I found it easier this way
