I had this problem with my truck aswell, it turned out to be an exhaust leak right in front of my O2 sensor (aftermarket exhaust) the sensor was getting false readings from the air rushing in through the leak. Ultimately causing oddball air/fuel mixtures. I am in the process of having my exhaust changed on my 1994 Ram 1500 with the 5.2 and I was told that the O2 sensor was in the cadalitic converter and that it would not run right without the converter. You can go to JEGS.com and get a dumby sensor that just plugs in and tells your computer that it is working fine. Hope this may help!!! TEX

What would cause the Cruise Control Light to come on but not activate the Cruise Control on a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 V6?

Leak in vacuum line to cruise control servo (actuator). Most commonly caused by vacuum line being inadvertently bumped & disconnected while someone is working under the hood or there may be a crack in the line. Another possibility is a bad servo. I believe the servo is located in the space between the battery and radiator (not sure on this because I have a 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 with the diesel engine which does not use a servo for the cruise control.) Once you locate your servo, follow the vacuum line from it & check for cracks. Yet another possibility is the servo cable may be disconnected from the throttle body.
