HELP..Cruise control not working

my cruise control isnt working for some reason. Anyone know where I can get it fixed? Is that something really complicated, or is it as easy as changing a computer or something of that sort?

there are several inputs into the cruize control module, most often the fault being found in the switches for the clutch and brake engagement. If those check out OK, it's time to bust out the wiring diagrams.

I can't remember the last time i used cruise.

When you press the CRUISE button, does the light on the CRUISE button come on?

yes the green light on the button comes on but it doesnt engage. I use it all the time in the night time so I want to fix it. I'm pretty sur dealer would charge an arm and a leg

ya, but you want it fixed, right? ... then pay an arm and a leg there is not much else you can do, unless you are skilled enough to tackle it yourself. Any other shop is likely just gonna fish around w/o really knowing what they are looking for, so the labour will still add up to about what the dealer will charge.

its a fairly simple thing though... its basically a unit... then a connector with a few wires goes into it... then the other end a circle thing that pulls on the throttle cable...

if you want i'll sell you my old cruise control unit though?

I say do some internet research..

Looking for like Civic Cruise repair, or cruise debug..

It could be your cruise module is shot.. if that's the case your gonna have to go hunting in junkyards for it.. Doesn't cruise require a relay as well? if so, when you press the button, do you hear it click?

This is a multi-meter, voltage reading job.. Your gonna need to know what reading a normal cruise system would have, then do tests on yours and see how far everything travels. I would think it's most likely an obvious thing considering you use it all the time.

Like Bruno said, get the wiring diagram out. Search the net, i'm sure someone else had a problem and decided to fix it themselves.. I know I would if i actually cared about it.

I think my cruise is fine, it's just not plugged in or something.

As for looking for wires,relays, codes I could never do that, I'm not mechanically inclined to do anything other than oil/tire changes.

For the speed thing, I dont you have to be doing 80kph for it to turn on in a 2000 civic.

The reason I cruise at night is because I'm the only one on the road when I come home from work and I dont want no cops telling me i'm speeding when I'm not. They already pick on civic drivers a lot in mississauga as it is.

Thanks for the feedback!
