i have 96 intrepid w/ 3.5l. my cruise control had been working fine, then the other day it stopped working all together. light on the dash comes on when i press on/off switch, but when i press the set button, it DOESN'T engage?!?!? weird. i checked the brake lamp switch to make sure it was making solid contact w/ the brake pedal, and it was. other than that, i have no clue what else to check.

any suggestions would be great!!!


thanks in advance for the help.

The switch does disengage when your foot isn't on the brake pedal correct? The switch shouldn't be closed all the time. Also, check your brake light bulbs including third brake light. I've seen before when a bulb was out there was no longer a 12v potential on the switch indicating the brake was off...

Look under the hood for the throttle body at the back of the engine (top), Find and follow the motorcycle-looking cable to your right and forward. It will go into what looks like an old V8 distributor-shaped device mounted on the fender well. That has a vacuum
line on it, and if that line comes off , no cruise control..
Other possibilities could be a fuse or a bad relay... maybe not, since the light comes on...could be, tho...
