Cruise Control (ECM/PCM) Input Test

  1. Turn the ignition switch to ON (II).
  1. Go to PGM-FI, and check for DTCs.
  1. Do the following tests while monitoring parameters in the PGM-FI DATA LIST with the HDS.
    NOTE: Intermittent failures are often caused by loose circuit connections. While monitoring cruise control inputs, flex their circuits, and note if any of the test results change.
    Signal to be tested
    Test condition
    Parameter: Desired result
    Possible cause if result is not obtained
    Brake pedal position switch signal
    Brake pedal pressed, then released
    CRUISE BRAKE SW should indicate OFF when the brake pedal is pressed and ON when the brake pedal is released.
    • Faulty brake pedal position switch
    • Blown No. 24 (10 A) fuse in the under-dash fuse/relay box
    • An open in the wire between the ECM/PCM and the brake pedal position switch
    • A wire shorted to ground between the ECM/PCM and the brake pedal position switch
    Clutch pedal position switch B signal (M/T model)
    Clutch pedal pressed, then released
    SHIFT/CLUTCH SW should indicate OFF when the clutch pedal is pressed and ON when the clutch pedal is released.
    • Faulty clutch pedal position switch B
    • An open in the wire between the ECM and the clutch pedal position switch B
    • A wire shorted to ground between the ECM and the clutch pedal position switch B
    • Poor ground G401
    Transmission range switch signal (A/T model)
    Shift lever in D and S
    SHIFT/CLUTCH SW should indicate ON in P, R, and N and OFF in D and S.
    • Faulty transmission range switch
    • An open in the wire between the PCM and the transmission range switch
    • A wire shorted to ground between the PCM and the transmission range switch
    • Poor ground G101
    Set switch signal
    Set/decel switch pressed and released
    CRUISE CONTROL SET SW should indicate ON when the set/decel switch is pressed and OFF when the set/decel switch is released.
    • Faulty cruise control combination switch
    • An open in the wire between the gauge control module and the cruise control combination switch
    • A wire shorted to ground between the gauge control module and the cruise control combination switch
    Resume switch signal
    Resume/accel switch pressed and released
    CRUISE CONTROL RESUME SW should indicate ON when the resume/accel switch is pressed and OFF when the resume/accel switch is released.
    • Faulty cruise control combination switch
    • An open in the wire between the gauge control module and the cruise control combination switch
    • A wire shorted to ground between the gauge control module and the cruise control combination switch
    Cancel switch signal
    Cancel switch pressed and released
    CRUISE CONTROL CANCEL SW should indicate ON when the cancel switch is pressed and OFF when the cancel switch is released.
    Faulty cruise control combination switch
    Cruise control main switch signal
    Cruise control main switch ON and OFF
    CRUISE CONTROL MAIN SW should indicate ON when the cruise control main switch is turned ON and OFF when the cruise control main switch is turned OFF.
    • Faulty cruise control combination switch
    • An open in the wire between the gauge control module and the cruise control combination switch
    • A wire shorted to ground between the gauge control module and the cruise control combination switch
    • An open in the wire between the cruise control combination switch and ground
    Cruise control indicator signal
    Start the engine, turn the cruise control main switch on, and drive the vehicle above 40 km/h (25 mph). Set and cancel the cruise control.
    CRUISE INDICATOR should indicate ON when the cruise control is set and OFF when the cruise control is canceled.
