    Did it just all of a sudden quit working or has it been awhile.

    Are you sure the toggle switch buttons are good? How about the plug to the toggle?

    You might take the pods off on the steering wheel and see if anything came loose on those. There is a ground in there behind the air bag. Just make sure you disconnect the battery before you mess with the airbag if you do.
  11. Wait ten minutes at least after you disconnect the airbag too. They still hold a charge.

    Well after a stern talking to, the cruise control is working again!:)

    I removed the CC pods and checked everything, the PC boards, the switches, the plugs, and the wiring, and could not find any problem. So I put it all back together, gave it a good talking and now it works! LOL, that happens to me a lot. Give me something broken, I take it apart, look it over and put it back together and it works.
