Cruise Control Won't Work

The first place to look is the brake light switch. Have you checked to see if your brake lights are constantly on? If so, you have a faulty switch. Other that that, there is a vacuum line to the cruise control servo under the hood. If that line is broken or has a bad leak, you would also experience the same symptoms. Of course if that line is broken, you should also be getting a rough idle because of a too lean fuel mixture.

Let us know what you find.

Checked for the brake lights and they work as they should (they aren't "on" all the time)

No rough idle so likely not a vacuum line...

Any other thoughts ?...its inconvenient but not a big deal.

Thanks for the tips,

Alan
