I need a little more information on this one. Do you mean that the engine RPM suddenly increases after being at a normal idle? Or do you mean that the engine will not idle down? If the engine RPM will not slow to a normal idle (somewhere between 500 and 700 RPM) I'd check for vacuum leaks. Start with the EGR valve. Make sure the gasket is in place and the EGR valve is installed and tightened. Also check the throttle body and make certain that it is properly tightened. If the engine suddenly races while idling, I'd check the mechanism that increases idle speed when the AC kicks on. If it is improperly adjusted you could have a problem. I'll watch this post and if you have any more concerns, write a clarifying question.

I have a 93 Caprice and the cruise went out a few times. Check the third brake light in the back of the window. If it is out replace it and this might fix the problem. Also check the fuse as it controls the cruise and third brake light as well.

I have a Ford Taurus 92, and my cruise control is right on the steering wheel. There is an "on and off" switch on the wheel, and you click the on, and a cruise control button should be under those. (be sure to click "on" before you click the c.c.)

Mine didn't quit, why ask me? :-) Check the fuses first.

yes. The 91-96 caprices are completely interchangeable.

your fuse box for a 1992 Chevy caprice, is in the drivers side panel when you open up the door. it is next to the door/window defroster.

If not working, check the horn 15amp fuse. when the horn doesn't work, neither does the criuse control.

Hopefully, you have had the cruise control module recall work done. It's free at any Ford, Lincoln or Mercury dealership. It can start a fire and be very dangerous. Take it to dealership right away.

The low side port for the AC on a 1992 Caprice Classic is the larger hose coming off the compressor. It is in the rear part of the engine compartment.

the horn is located on the steering wheel along with the accel set button and cruise control button.

The ecm is under the dash above the glove box. Above and to the left of that ( smaller box ) is the cruise control module.

User Avatar

yea they will with no problem

under the dash, look up on the left (driver's side) of the steering column. It will have a brown connector plugged into it. If you have cruise control, the cruise control box is covering it up. Remove the bolts (10mm socket) in the cruise control box and you will expose the "PGM-FI Relay". You will need a 10mm deep socket to remove the nut holding the relay in place.
