Check the rubber elbow attached to the PCV valve. My 1999 Buick Century just started humming this week and I finally found that the rubber elbow conecting the PCV valve to the vacuum hose had collapsed (age wear?) It kind of sounds like when you let the air out of a balloon by pulling the sides of the fill tube, only much lower in pitch and a steady note.

How do you repair the cruise control on a 94 Pathfinder when the accelerate button does not work?

The problem may be in the switch, to test the accelerate portion you need a multi meter. Remove the steering column cover to gain access to the wire connector for the multi switch. Test for continuity between the top left connector pin ( flat side of connector is down ) and the bottom right when the switch is activated in accelerate. If there is continuity the the switch is good and the problem is in the ASCD control module. If no continuity is detected then replace the multi switch.
