Nissan Xterra has a button on lower left of steering wheel to Power OnOff for cruise control but cruise control will not engage nor will the light on the dash come on. Is there a fuse or simple fix?

I found a great mechanic in the area and within 2 hrs and 70.00 dollars later he found there is a screw in switch up and behind the brake pedal with a "plunger type of mechanism" which over time the cruise control cut-off switch managed to "unscrew itself" which caused the cruise control not to engage. He has my business.

How do you repair the cruise control on a 93 Nissan Sentra XE?

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.

Subaru cruise control vacuum?

If you're having problems with your cruise control, I would suggest that you check into your Subaru's transmission and engine error codes to see what it's returning if anything. Many times the problem with the cruise can be diagnosed by the vehicle itself. The car will not allow the cruise control to function if it knows about a specific problem, which will be given in the error codes. I don't know what year subaru you have, but look into getting both the engine (check engine light) error codes and the transmission (power light) error codes on your Legacy to see what they're returning. My speed sensor was out on my Subaru. Once I found the problem in the error codes, I swapped it out and my cruise worked just great.

How do you adjust cruise control 2002 Camaro?

On the turn signal lever, slide the cruise control switch to on with thumb(there are 3 possitions here, off, on, reset slide in that order). Drive up to the desired speed and press the signal lever on the center with your index finger, this will set the speed. When safe, release pedal and feel for reaction from the car itself. The Camaro will slow down slightly but will almost immediately regain speed if the cruise control engaged properly. Pressing the brake dis engages the cruise control. Sliding the switch to reset will reset the set speed and in the camaro this may come as a shock if the vehicle has much speed to make up like from 40 mph to 80. Be careuful.

What causes my cruise control to constantly adjust itself up and down and then after a few minutes it will just shut off. It will re-engage but then repeat the process.?

Cruise control problems are very serious issues, If you are at all unsure weather or you are confident to handle this or have your family at risk, I would take it to a shop for professionial help. is afew things to try on your own,, cruise control basicialy works on vacuum ,check the vacuum release switch above the brake pedal, or check the vehicle speed sensor, or may have a bad vacuum line,, and always check the fuse.

Why your car accelerate itself when you put it in gear?

The criuise control is on or the cruise control needs to be worked on. Applying the brake or if your car is a standard shift, pushing in the clutch should turn it on. Needless to say, get this fixed. It could be very dangerous. Check the fuse box for a fuse called Speed control. Pull the fuse until it can be fixed.
