Audiovox cruise problem
« on: May 07, 2012, 12:48:58 am »
My cruise quit working after 3 years and 38k.  I replaced the control pad and still no good.  I have battery and ground where they are supposed to be and did continuity check on wiring.  Has any one had the servo unit go out?  I'm getting ready to buy the whole kit.  It will be a snap since the hardest part is done (carb).  Anything else to check?  The linkage looks ok.  My first Connie and cruise took me to 100k and I never covered the touch pad.

Check for residual voltage in the purple wire with a digital volt meter. It needs to be less than .007 volts, or the cruise thinks the brakes are on. If you have too much voltage a relay installed in the ground circuit from the brake light should fix it. The proceedure is in the archives.

Larry is right. You must also have a good brake light bulb.
