The most common cause would be that the brake pedal is activating the cruise release switch. That could be because your brake pedal is low because of low fluid, or worn brakes. The switch could also just need to be readjusted because of break pedal and linkage wear.

For the cruise to engage and stay on the brake pedal must continuously contactthe switch to hold it closed. Look around the break pedal an you will see two switches that are activsted by the brake pedal. Hold the pedal down and activate the switches with you finger while some one observes the brake lights. Pushing one switch will turn off the brake lights pushing the other will deactivate the cruise. Adjust the cruise switch position.

If the switch position is not the problem then there could be an intermitant short or bad connection in the wiring to the switch.

I like his answer better than mine lol 8-)


AnswerMost of the Cruise Controls run off of vacuum. Follow the cable from the throttle to the Cruise Control actuator then follow the vacuum line from the Cruise Control actuator and make sure it doesn't have a leak in it.


Follow the hose from the cruise servo to the three way vac. connector. They turn grey and fall a part and leak as that should be the source of your leak.

What does driving in second gear do to a Lexus driving on high way speed?

Well, driving at highway speeds in any vehicle in 2nd gear, will raise the RPM of the engine, meaning that the engine is working that much harder to maintain the speed. As the engine constantly revs at a higher RPM, it heats up alot quicker, which in the end could do alot of damage to your car. And if its a Lexus, i would advise to SWITCH gears and keep an eye on your RPM and temperature gauge

How long do I drive my car after resetting check eng-lite.?

Most vehicles need a couple drive cycles for all the monitors to report to the ECM that everything is in good working order. A drive cycle consists of a cold start (sitting overnite), turning on electrical accessories (heater or AC, lights, etc) some city driving and some highway driving. Depending on the vehicle and your driving habits it could take several cycles.

The ABS warning light is intended to come on at the time you start the vehicle, so you know it's working, then go out at about 7mph once the vehicle has determined that the ABS is operating properly. Thus, the ABS light should be off during normal driving, and on only during start-up and the first few mph of acceleration.
