I've read that in order to replace the druise control switch you have to disarm the airbag and such.... pretty time consuming and risky work...I think you can get it done professionally for about $200 or so...


The easiest fix to this problem is to just stick a dime in the space above the cruise control switch... you don't have to hold it down, and it costs 10 cents... works well!

you dont need to "disarm" the airbag, but it is a good idea to unplug the unit so you dont accidentally set it off, you have to remove the steering wheel and pull the steering colum covers off and there should be a couple of TORX bolts holding it in, then you just unplug the leads off the thing and reverse order to put new one in.

How do you install a brake light switch with cruise in a 1990 Jeep Cherokee?

Start by removing the connections for the cruise control and brake lights, then remove the bolt that holds the switch to the brake pedal. Once the brake pedal is loose the switch is held on the brake pushrod by a bushing with nylon retaining washers. Carefully remove one washer and slide the bushing out, the switch can now be removed from the pushrod. Installation is the reverse; line up the hole on the switch with the hole on the pushrod, make sure the tabs for the cruise control and brake lights are facing properly. Reinstall the bushing and replace the other nylon washer, replace the bolt and tighten. Lastly connect the brake lights and cruise control.

How do you fix cruise control on a 1994 Chevy pickup?

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.
