Re: cruise control troubles
There is a diagnostic mode for these trucks.
First turn the key to the on position (not starting the engine) while holding the OFF button on the controls.
The speed cont should blink.
Then press in this order ON, Resume, Coast, SET/ACCEl.
Do this moderately fast. Like a second between each press.
After you press each button you should see a flash (this shows that each button works).
After the last press (set/accel) you should get one flash it everything is fine, and then you can feel the throttle move as the servo moves the cable like an inch back and forth. If you get two it means that the brake light switch, or wiring, clutch pedal switch or jumper, wiring is bad or you had your foot on the brake or clutch. Three flashes means a problem with the brake pressure deactivation switch.
Post what happens or if you have problems getting this to work. If you have a problem doing this diagnostic I can post a video later to show what to do .
