See if you can get it to engage by pushing "set" and then pushing the "accel" button until it the engage light comes on. If this works, you simply need to take up the slack in your actuator cable. If not we need to diagnose more...
no joy the light in the instrument panel will not come on, and the unit does not 'engage' and hold speed. The master CC switch does light up, and the fuse (Number 11 I think) is good. connections at the actuator look ok, butI need to pull the connector apart and WD 40 the pins.
I just bought the car, it has 79,000 miles and runs as if it was just broken in. An unbelieveable find for $6500. Thanks for your post.
I would still look at the actuator cable for your problem...check out the service manual for your car and download it...then look up the chapter on cruise control for diagnosing the problem your having. It will tell you exactly how to chek the actuator cable or anything else that matches your problem.
Thanks again for your message. I took the slack out of the cable, and tried the Set, Resume sequence, the light still does not come on, and the unit does not engage. Pulling the small hose off produced a nice hiss, so it has vacuum.
I reviewed the manuals (thanks for the links), and I suspect either the steering wheel switches or the module. Because of the Airbag interface, I am taking it to the dealer - I am a shadetree mechanic and will only probe so far.
I'll put up a general post when I have the problem solved.
2-3 years ago...back when I owned my 94 accord LX...I had a similar problem. The car had about 180k miles on it at that point. I punted on it. Even though I drove 20k/yr on it, it wasnt worth fixing the cruise. So I lived without it. Something to think about.
