Yeah i think so

My break lights are woking but the cruise isn't.

My car is getting a service tommorrow and the cruise is hopefully getting fixed, so ill ask what the problem was.

Cheers

The areas that can cause what you have:

1. Brake pedal switch - okay as you have said.
2. Clutch switch wiring blank plug for auto's (see below).
3. Master cylinder switch - pull the plug, short with wire, go for a drive.

Electrically, using Greg's manual, pull the cruise servo plug - you can continuity check everything in the system bar the servo itself if you have a decent cct diagram to follow, without pulling things apart, get someone to operate brake pedal and steering wheel switches. This will also check if the clutch switch wiring is shorted properly with the auto plug as well.


where is this Clutch switch wiring blank plug for auto's located so i can check it?

Look in the jumble of wiring in front of and above the brake pedal - two wires, green/red & green/white going into a shorting plug. IIRC the cruise doco has a pic.
This is the EF/EL setup though.

i think mine might just be the switches because the (-) button just started working yesterday(hold down ON and (-) and the horn should go) but the (+) isnt working and you cant check the resume button if (+) isn't working so i'll just try diff switches

My on and off buttons work, but I don't think the other side of buttons are. Best course of action?

check if its just the plus hold down the on and (-) and if the horn doesnt beep then its probly the right side if the horn does beep then it might just be the Acc button

Yeah horn doesn't sound, so I know (-) doesn't work, good chance the rest don't work either? (on that side).

Because I can get CRUISE to show up and leave on the cluster via ON and OFF buttons.
