That all really depends on if you want to disconnect it or, remove it. I'm not sure how to remove it, but to disconnect it.... Find the throttle linkage under the hood, this is where you can move your throttle to increase your RPMs without being in the car. There will be 3 cables attache to it, 2 on the top and 1 on the bottom. The two on top should be connected together. The one on the bottom is the cable for your cruise control. Remove that cable and there you go. The cable is held on to the throttle body by a plastic bushing type clip, you can try to pull the cable out of this to remove it, but I would suggest breaking the bushing out in case you decided that you wanted to put it back on, the bushing would cost probably about $10-20 less to replace pending on where you go.

Spyder

We had trouble with the cruise control on a 1991 Cougar. The plastic piece Spyder talks about broke and the cable fell out of the bracket. It may not happen, but the black plastic square piece on the cable looks like it could fall and get lodged between the throttle body, which would cause the accelerator to get stuck. I think we are going to try tying the cruise control cable's black plastic square piece off with a cable tie so it cannot block the throttle body. Might want to ask someone that knows for sure before you do this to be safe.

check the fuse... cruise control is on the same fuse so if cruise doesnt work then its a simple fix. if not then find horns behind the facia (need to take off skidplate) and check if they receive power

Remove the cruise control and unplug the pump. Simply disconnect the two plugs and pull the pump out of the fluid resevoir. Connect the hoses to the new pump, plug in the electrical connectors and plug the pump back into the resevoir. Make sure to hook the cruise control back up. All the controls on the steering wheel are ran through the cruise control. By not plugging the cruise back up, you will not have a horn, radio controls, etc...

Pullthe plug off cruse unit under hood

bad fuse... try the horn, its on the same circuit as them

I have the exact same problem with my cougar and I know the solution. The cable that runs from the cruise control to the throttle body has probably either come off of where it should be or it has snapped in half. They are steel (I guess you could say braided) cables and mine is frayed so it's loose and it jumps off easily. I called the local Mercury dealer in town and they said that it runs about $46 but a junkyard will work just the same.

You can't- You have to buy the whole cruise control buttons ( about 85 bucks from the dealer).

Check the pressure sensor on the master cylinder - very common.

Cruise control is an accessory.

Check 15 amp fuse "R" in the fuse box. It appears that the horn relay feeds part of the cruise control system.

If the cruise control on your 1987 300ZX does not work, you might have an issue with the cruise control fuse or wiring. You could also have a problem with the switch that turns the cruise control on and off.

You can unplug it at the servo itself. The servo is the part that has a cable coming from it attached to the throttle body. You'll see see a wire harness plugged into it.

To use the cruise control on the PT Cruiser, turn the cruise control on in the steering wheel. Accelerate to the desired speed and push in the end of the left turn signal knob. The cruise control should then control the speed. To take the car out of cruise control, a person can tap the brake.

You could check the switch on the brake pedal, sometimes they need to be adjusted so the cruise will stay on.
