Default Cruise Control

Is there anyway to troubleshoot the cruise control. Last year after replacing the fuel filter, the cruise control stopped working. Is there any way to trouble shoot it and find out what went wrong?

i guess you can try make sure that your vaccum hoses are connected and there isn't one unplug maybe. if i remember correctly hoses are connected underneath that black cruise control under the hood man.

yeah there are vaccum lines that go attached from the manifold into the cruise control actuator assembly. I believe its that big black roundish thing around the battery area somewhat. If one or more of those lines arent connected properly or whatever it will cause the cruise control to not engage and activate at all. i know that for sure. but i guess its possibly to still have everything connected properly and still not have it working at all. in that case then its something more in deep inside the car where those butterfly actuators arent working or something to do with the electrical area.
I also dont think that the cruise control light comes on at all on these cars! they just engage the cruise control without the cruise control light.

Check your brake light switch. Some cars have one for brake lights and one for cruise. This is so it can be turned off when brakes applied. I haven't done much on 2g's to know what the system setup is.

there isn't one that you can actually see on the cluster at all! it just turns on thats all. i wish there was one on these clusters that would make the cluster a bit nicer i guess in the allumination department.

I'll check the vacuum lines on my next day off. In general, I am not all that worried about it, but it would be nice when I actually take it out on the freeway and just set the speed at 70-75 and not have to worry too much.

There is a vacuum line that runs around your air cleaner that plugs into your cruise control from underneath by the fuel filter. It has a large rubber boot on it like a spark plug wire.
