Gday was on my way home from work today and got onto the eastlink and turned cruise control on but it wouldn't work, the light turned on as normal but wouldn't hold speed? is there an easy fix for this?

Cheers

you fixed it?

That switch should be closed (if you multimeter across it should get a beep without treading on the pedal...)

Cheers,
