Default Re: cruise control not working

Is it possible the brake switch needs adjusting? Or maybe partly faulty?

My '99 had a brake switch that needed adjusting. The brakes would go out when the pedal was released, but the second switch related to the CC still registered to the computer that the brakes were applied. Sometimes the CC would work, sometimes a bump in the road would deactivate it, sometimes it wouldn't work at all.

Adjusting it to fit against the brake pedal better made a world of difference and was fairly easy. Mine is Gen-2, and this is Gen-1, but I can't imagine it is too much more difficult.

...
Thanks! David
