Hi everyone,

My 1993 Intrepid and I had an unfortunate encounter with a deer last month. The deer didn't make it; my 93 was hurt but pulled through. I purchased parts from a junkyard and aftermarket company to replace a left fender, radiator, condensor, lights and mounting unit for lights. I managed make repairs to the hood and bumper so I'm using those until I can get replacements. While I was at it, I replaced all the belts and hoses since I had the entire front end off.

My Intrepid is back on the road but it seems to have one problem. My cruise control won't operate. I checked and tested the 2 fuses located under the dash compartment - they're both good. When I activate the cruise control, the indicator light turns on, and I can hear a slight click sound but no cruise control.

I know that there additional fuses/relays or
selenoids located under the hood near the left fender but I didn't see anything there related to cruise control.

Any help and recommendations?

Happy Holidays,
MC

I had the same problem with my 1993 ES. Go down to the dealer and purchase a new cruise control relay for 10 dollars. It fixed mine right up! :cool: Ohh, by the way, they're in your fuse box in the car. Use the panel that you remove to identify what all the relays and fuses do.

Guys,

thanks for the welcome to the club and quick responses.
I'll check out your suggestions. I looked at labelling on the cover of the black fuse box so I must have missed it. I'll have to check that again.
I have also heard from other another source that it might be the vacumm line or the canister which is supposed to be underneath the battery holder.

Looks like I have some homework to do.
The loss of the cruise control is not a major problem except I have this need to fix it, partly due to the fact that I drive about 175 miles each day.

thanks,
MC

Nope we still use vacuum to make the cruise work,even on the 2002 cars. Make sure the rubber hose is connected and has vacuum. Then before buying relays just switch them around in the PDC box(power distribution box were the relays are) the black relays are all the same. This will tell you if it is a relay.

Hey ottowkr, I think you're the closest DI.net member to me! I live in Toronto (well, Newmarket actually, but close enough!)It's probably all of an hour away!

Maybe I can get you to smuggle some parts out of the plant for me! HAHA...just kidding! :)

The problem was that both vacuum lines were broken near the resevoir.
I replaced the lines and my cruise control works again. :)
