It appears to be a Rostra unit their site http://www.rostra.com/rostra-support.php has an extensive support page. That is why I asked about the tail lights, they mentioned it. I would go to the site input you vehicle info and click the support tab. They will give you step by step instructions included are calibration steps, which may be your issue.
tl;dr: Safety. Why is this that way? What is the purpose of being able to deactivate it in 2 ways as well - using the master switch/button, and a separate "cancel" one next to the set/restore buttons? You're asking a control theory question that's easier to answer in pictures than in words. However, SE isn't great for diagramming so I'll try to ...
I think your question may be misguided. The final effect you seem to be looking for is to be able to cruise at a specific speed while using the least amount of petrol, is that correct? This is absolutely possible in modern internal combustion engine cars. You don't do it by turning the engine off and on again, or by depressing the clutch to let the car ...
The purpose of being able to deactivate your cruise control in two different ways (note: there are at least 3 including brake/clutch pedal switches/neutral safety switch) is that the cruise control system has two distinct 'deactivation states': 1) System off and disabled, like the off switch on your computer. No accidental press of the set/resume buttons ...
Problem solved, here are two problems I had to fix The ECU option is the one after the BSI one, it doesn't have ECU in its name, just a code. If your cruise control stick does not have speed limit, do not activate it on BSI or in ECU. Does anyone knows how to trick the limit to allow it to work in 3rd gear under 35mph?
You have two options: aftermarket cruise, factory cruise Aftermarket: Most car alarm/stereo installation shops will be able to get and install aftermarket cruise control. You can order them online such as here Factory: General Motors Usually only has one wiring harness for the vehicle, meaning the vehicle with all the options has the same wiring ...
This sounds like a bad switch. Assuming the main cruise control system is responding but you aren't getting set, reset, coast, etc., then it's likely that one or more of the internal contacts has broken or come loose. Annoyingly, those control stalks are integrated units. Easy to replace but not cheap.
Sounds like it could be anywhere between the button, and the module. The first step should be to read the codes, and ensure nothing is calling for a fault. The next step, if no codes are found, is to check the switch. The reality is that troubleshooting this at home can be difficult without the proper equipment. This list of Mazda OBD-II Trouble Codes does ...
Not sure if this helps, but for BMW Z3s they made a kit that allowed for you to just basically plug it in. I installed one once, and remember the kit costing like a couple of hundred bucks. I recommend going to dealership, get estimate, and then see if it has a part number you can cross reference for the kit to see if there are cheaper options online, or ...
