Default 2002 Cruise Control ... Where is the controller

I couldn't find a black box in the repair manual. Is it really built into the PCM?

My wife's '02 doesn't work and I'm trying to track down the possible causes.

The CRUISE is illuminated for about 5 seconds on start-up, goes out and nothing else happens. It's like it's got a short or failing a self-test.

Clock spring...replaced. Switch...replaced.

Thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

When you say start-up, do you mean when you turn the Cruise control on?

Did you check for a vacuum leak? There may be a pinhole leak in the vacuum line running to the servo.

That's my thought.

I'm not 100% positive, but I THINK it's on the passenger side of the car near the firewall.

You'll find the cruise control unit mounted above the right strut tower. Check for vacuum leaks, fuses, proper seating of the electric plug in that unit and proper channeling of the cables, including kinks.

Off time during other repairs this unit or some of it's accessories are removed and can be overlooked upon completion of the project!

Good luck, Happy PTin', ptprice
