How many times does it flash?

There is a diagnostic feature of our systems:

Do not start engine during this test. Transmission in Park or Neutral with parking brake applied.

Put the key in the ignition and hold the OFF button on the speed control then turn the key to the on position and then release the OFF button. This puts the speed control in diagnostic mode.

Within 5 seconds of releasing the OFF button, start pressing the buttons in the sequence shown below:
  • ON
  • RESUME
  • COAST
  • SET/ACCEL
(For each button pressed, the speed control light should flash ONCE, indicating that the pressed button is working.)

If, after pressing the last button (SET/ACCEL), the speed control light flashes:
  • 2 flashes - defective brake pedal position sensor and/or a bad clutch pedal position sensor or the circuit is defective.
  • 3 flashes - Brake deactivation switch is open or circuit is defective.
  • 4 flashes - Vehicle speed signal is out of range or circuit is defective.
Immediately after the last flash code is complete, the speed control servo will pull the throttle open and then release it. This should be watched to check that the throttle and cable are not binding or inoperative for any other reason.

Although it is rare, it is also possible that this code could flash early during the diagnostic procedure.
  • 5 flashes Speed Control Actuator defective.
Turn ignition switch to the off position after test.

Does this work for the 94 4.0?

Just did this in my '99 and the right pod buttons did not make the light come on but the left does. Does that mean a defective cruise pod then?

I have the same problem. Driving me nuts. Did you find any solutions? I just am trying to avoid replacing every part in the cruise system till I find the problem. Thanks.

Mine ended up being a wire pulled from the clutch sensor.

Please, be more specific on the wire to the clutch, as to the pedal or where else could it be located.

My 94 is an automatic, and I still have not made the cruise work consistently.

Help on this will be appreciated greatly.
