Silverado cruise control quit

Question

Hookmaster

I have a 2004 Silverado on which the cruise control quit working after going through the snow on Bowstring two weekends ago. I thought it may come back when everything thawed out but it hasn't. Does anybody have any ideas on where to start looking to fix it?

I had the same thing. Found out later that the switch on the brake peddle was set to low. I lifted the peddle with my foot a few days later and it work. Then I adjusted the switch so you had to step on the peddle harded to kick it out.

I lifted the brake pedal on the way to work this morning and the cruise still didn't work. I will look closer at the switch tonight. Any other ideas? Any sensors or fuses to check?

Hookmaster, I was going to look up some info for you at work last night and completely spaced it. For sure I will look tonight and will try to post tonight (after 10:00).

everything else is ok? throttle and throttle response is good? i know on the new GM TAC drive by wire systems the cruise is controled by the throttle actuator.

if so check fuse, has its own fuse, its a 10 amper.

if thats ok, ide check the ground, and thats at the throttle actuator control (TAC) module and thats where that circuit grounds to, the 3 controls are to that one common ground so wiggle the connectors. but usually bad grounds are intermitant, so i doubt thats the problem, anyway its on the firewall little gray box

thats kind of the easiest things i could think of to do at home, there are diffrent things you could start with or diagnose, but thats bout the easiest it gets to do at home.

these new cruise systems are kinda easy so hopefully we can talk you thru all the easy stuff to fix it, theres more we can suggest so let us know what you try

Ditto what matt said.

There are four fuses that this system uses. Two are in the under hood fuse block (ETC/ECM fuse *unlikely* and the stop lamps fuse *probably wouldn't have brake lights and likely would have an ABS light on if this one was blown*). the other two are in the instrament panel fuse block (lower left side of the dash). these would be the vehicle stop fuse and the cruise fuse.

If all these check out than the next step is to brake out the scan tool. Like matt mentioned the cruise is integrated with the "drive by wire" throttle control. There are only two additional components that the cruise uses. the cruise control switch itself and the light that lets you know the cruise is on.

This doesn't really help a whole lot but at least you have some idea of the simplistic complexity of this system. Or as I like to call it, progress!! grin.gif

Thanks for the replies. I checked the "cruise" fuse and it looked good but swapped it with another 10 amper anyway. No change. I will check the other ones you have described. Is the TAC on the firewall on the driver's side? I took off and put back on the two wireharnesses on the box on the driver's side firewall with no luck. I'll check it's ground this weekend.

I checked the other fuses by sight and with an ohmmeter. Everthing checked out OK. I couldn't believe how many fuses were in the fuse block under the hood. Maybe it was taking them out and putting them back in that improved the connection but it worked after that. Thanks for telling me which fuses to check. That's why FMers are the best.

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter

      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
