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.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.

      Rig up a motion sensor with a horn or alarm of some kind.

      New neighbor decided he likes to feed deer in the winter, and he does so right on our side of his yard.   The food attracts many many deer, and so our yard now has a big mudhole as well as bushels of deer pellets.    (free for the raking).    Nobody on the road is very happy about him feeding the deer since they tramp around the area and stand on the road and so on.    He didn't sound like "oops won't do that anymore" but more like "no big deal, it will wash away and the grass will grow back"    Anybody got any suggestions?   CO says "nothing that he can do", Town board isn't happy either but isn't convinced they can do anything.   I'm thinking that if they pass a rule, then I can take him to small claims court every spring until he stops wrecking our lawn.   Molotov cocktails are a last resort.   I am thinking of a fence that I put up in the fall to funnel the deer away from my yard.   Snowfence is too short but might help discourage them....   I really don't want war with the neighbor but this can't go on.    I'll talk to him again and see what he is thinking....   Maybe a letter from all his neighbors...   I need ideas...

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!

      Nice fish!

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!
