The cruise control on my car doesnt work. Theres I flick the switch on, and push the set button and nothing happens. Could this be an easy fix? Or is it gonna be something I'd have to get a mechanic to take a look at?
Some cruise control units simply die, I've heard of others that if you let the speed drop a bit it'll come on, etc... If it's the switch or wiring you can use the service manual with the wiring diagrams and see if the power is getting to the unit. Maybe it's not connected to the carburetor.
In my service manual it says
try the following checks before doing the system check:
1. Check C/C Fuse.
2. Check vacuum hoses for leaks, kinks, and other restrictions.
3. Check Cruise Control Servo Linkage. Refer to Section 9B for Vacuum hose routing.
