Default cruise control problem

Howdoes 95 sc2 cruise control work? Is there a relay. For me at times the control stops working and if I turn it off an back on it often starts working, sometimes not but after stopping and restarting car it starts working,

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

It is all in the module in the column and the switch on the wheel. If you mean quits working by dropping out of cruise every so often that is usually the module or a power issue. Replace the CRUISE fuse with a new one and if you have a manual transmission there is a clutch pedal position switch that wears out and causes random drop outs. There is also a section of the brake switch that will also do that so you have to do some experimenting to figure out exactly what has failed.

Those 2 switches, clutch and brake, are in the power line to the module.

Ok Thanks, is TAAT so no clutch.Can replace brake switch easy. But module on column was unaware of where incolumn is it,and how does one access it? My sc2 is a 95, will modules from newer models work or is it yearspecific.Do not thinknew modues exist? so will need junkyard to find one.so again willa later year modue like 2000 etc work and will module from other than S series work, like newer ION etc? Nobody seems to know stuff like you do.Thanks for help.

Right side of column and it has a cable leading to the pedal. You have to remove the dash top cover to change the brake switch which is not as easy as it looks. Generally any 93-95 module will work but I would look for a 95 and the majority of them will have the clip that connects them to the throttle broken and then they are close to junk unless you know how to swap out that cable. Get one with a guarantee as most are dead and the later absoulutly wil not work.

You can test the brake switch by getting cruise engaged and then just bumping the SIDE of the pedal, run this test multiple times to confirm it is the brake switch.
