First, the cruise control switch on the dash, left of the steering wheel, must be set to the "on" position. Press it; the switch will light when it's in the "on" position (the light is only noticeable if you're looking at it). If memory serves, every time you start the car the cruise system will default to "off," but that's easy to check (the light). Once you reach your desired cruising speed, press the steering wheel button that is labeled (again, if memory serves) "set, coast. It's the lower of the two steering wheel buttons (again, if memory serves), so if the lettering is rubbed off or my recollection of the label is wrong, no matter. In any case, there is no harm in pressing the wrong button. (If you press the wrong button at this point, the system just ignores you.) There will be a very brief lag -- probably about 1 second and 2 mph -- between the time you press the button and the time the cruise control kicks in. Once cruise is engaged, to reset it at a higher or lower speed, press and hold one of the steering wheel buttons until you reach the desired new speed. Upper button is to accelerate, lower button is to decelerate (coast). Hitting the brakes, even lightly, will disengage the cruise setting but not turn off the system. If you do this, you can resume cruising at the most recent setting simply by hitting the upper steering wheel button, as long as you are going at least 30 mph. You can come to a complete stop, use the gas pedal to get back to at least 30 mph and then hit the upper button -- that will work. But if you're going, say 20 mph and hit the button, the system will ignore you. The cruise system does not work for speeds less than 30 mph. The brake always disengages the cruise setting until you re-awaken cruise by hitting either button.

Why won't 2004 accord cruise control set?

Make sure you have the main cruise control button depressed. You will then see a display light indiciating "Cruise Control". After that, just use the normal buttons to set, accelerate, and coast. BEWARE, though. The cruise control button for our 2004 Accord stopped letting me keep it in the depressed position, and I can't keep my cruise control on now. Will let you know once the mechanic takes a look at it.
