Hello,
I bought this car with 106000 on it, it run great, but the cruise control does not work, I purchased a cruise control module and it still does not work, my speedometer works, the fuse is good, I tested with continuity check, my question is how do I troubleshoot and diagnose the problem I dont have money to take it to a shop, (recently lost job) When I press the engage button on the turn signal switch nothing happens.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hello and thanks for donating

The first thing to check since fuses are good would be the brake lamps to ensure they are working properly. Let me know how they look and I will follow up with further diagnostic steps as needed.

Okay, unfortunately the brake lights are the easiest to check. Since they are working, the best thing to do would be have a diagnostic scanner hooked up to vehicle and check the cruise control system for codes. The codes will then pinpoint the issue, it could be a faulty sensor, bad switch on steering wheel or just loose wiring.
