The first thing you should check are your vacuum lines. If they are old and dried out, they may not be holding a vacuum. If it isn't holding a vacuum, it won't work (or it might work for a short time or your speed might fluctuate up and down when you have the cruise set).
Take an old piece of the vacuum hose into any auto parts store and they can get you the correct size.
You should be able to replace all of the vacuum lines associated with the cruise control system for under $10.00.
You may want to purchase a repair manual - it will make your life much easier whenever you need to work on the car yourself.
The repair will depend on what part of the cruise control is broken.

Change the cruise control switch.
Hello, Can't think of ideas of how you can break you're cruise Control repair, but the best thing to do is go to B and B (body and paint Fire Stone. Excedrea excedera) and see if they can repair the cruise control button and that's the easiest way to go but if the cruise control is really broken you might want to swap out the steering wheel
Put a brick on the accelerator pedal
take it to a mechanic. Cruise control repairs are pretty difficult and unless you are real good and know what you are doing I would not mess with it.
1. perform diagnosis 2. repair
First you need to troubleshoot the 1994 LeSabre cruise control. Check the fuse, the cruise switch, the linkage, to find where the problem is. Check the vacuum lines on the engine as a vacuum leak can cause the cruise to not work properly.
Um, are you trying to install cruise on a car that didn't come from the factory with it? Or are you trying to replace/repair an existent system?FriPilot
Find out what's wrong, then repair it or replace it. There, that was simple. And the fact is, that's what ALL repairs are about. Cruise control problems are often quite simple, such as a faulty brake light switch or cruise control activation switch or even a poorly adjusted cruise control module. But you'll need to start looking at the individual components and find out which part isn't doing what it's SUPPOSED to be doing.
If you have a manual transmission the stop button on the clutch switch may have broken apart, replace the stop button to fix the cruise control. You can get one at any Nissan Dealership.
as it says here http://en.allexperts.com/q/Chrysler-Repair-807/cruise-control-dodge-neon.htm you could check the vacuum cable. I have the same problem on the same car.
Hopefully, you have had the cruise control module recall work done. It's free at any Ford, Lincoln or Mercury dealership. It can start a fire and be very dangerous. Take it to dealership right away.
Basically get the emission code at the repair shop, get it fixed, and reset the code. Some codes in Subaru involve Cruise Control light flashing. In my case, that happened due to a misfire on 3-rd cylinder (replaced the ignition coil), and EVAP system leak (bad fuel pump gasket). In both cases, after the repair has been done, the code was reset, and the cruise control light never blinked after that.
I'm sorry i really don't know...lol...

Is your car on the re-call list for the cruise. Check with your local Ford dealer. They have to change the cruise module. No charge, even for that year. The old one, possible can cause a fire or short out.
The cheapest place to start is to replace all of the vacuum lines. If they are old, dried out, and cracked, that might be your problem. I would recommend that you purchase a CHILTON or HAYNES repair manual. It will do a good job of explaining how to work on it. They are available at many book stores and auto parts stores.
If the cruise control system fails to power on, i.e. the light on the cruise control switch does not light, check the fuse. If the fuse is not blown, there may be a problem with the wiring or the cruise control module itself. If the system powers on but it fails to keep the vehicle at speed when engaged, the vacuum hose between the cruise control module and the actuator may be faulty. The cruise control module can be found at the rear of the engine compartment near the driver's side door. A black vacuum hose runs from the module to the actuator, which is a round black plastic object which is connected with a cable to the throttle. Disconnect the vacuum hose from the actuator and inspect the end. If it is cracked, you may be able to cut 1/4" from the end of the hose and reconnect it.
It is expensive to repair body damage on any vehicle not just the Honda Accord. Reason being is that the parts & paint are expensive and it is a very labor-intensive procedure. The Honda Accord is no more expensive to repair than any other modern vehicle.
DO NOT EVEN ATTEMPT TO REPAIR THIS. Take it to a professional, because it is an extremely complex repair; if you attempt this, you could end up without a car.
By having a professional repair the problem that has turned the light on. They will reset the light after the repair. This is not a DIY repair.
Random/multiple misfire detected.
FUSE There is a blue relay (a larger cube than a fuse) in the fudebox near the battery. I replaced it from a salvaged car and it worked again.
