Default cruise control

Still haven't got my owner manual.
I push in on the cruise control and the "cruise"light comes on-press down on the lever to set but does not engage.Checked fuse-o.k.
Am I not setting it right or do I need to visit the dealer[xx(]
Any site w/online manual?

Cruise Control: To Activate - Push the ON/OFF button. The Cruise indicator in the instrument cluster will illuminate. To turn the system OFF, push the ON/Off button a second time. The Cruise indicator will turn off. The system should be turned OFF when not in use.

To Set At A Desired Speed: When the vehicle has reached the desired speed, press down on the lever and release. Release the accelerator and the vehicle will operate at the selected speed.

NOTE: When in the AutoStick mode, speed control will only operate in third and fourth gear.

I always push in and push down, then up to engage. I know it just says down.... Once engaged, up taps will increase speed a mile or two per tap.

Question Cook, Why didn't the dealer give the manual to you. Every vehicle I bought had one. My used PT had two in the dash compartment, and NO, one isn't yours.

Did you check the throttle connection to the cruise control?

Rolo-haven't a clue what to look for[:I]but I'll learn-let the dealer take care of it for now.
Hooligan-he gave it to me at the lot-was reading it in the office-signed a bunch of papers-getting late -left it there-was mailed sat. to me-should be here today(tue)

The big grin can't believe cook fell for the"its in the mail"
