My cruise control works some time, and some times it does not. Ok, most of the time it does not work. After talking to crovo, I was able to pinpoint it down to a brake switch out of adjustment. I looked under the dash, and there looks like two seperate switches. Since I know the cruise was added and not factory, I could tell the lower switch is the one for it. Now I just need to know how to adjust it.

Doesnt the brake switch just turn it off?
Wouldnt that mean as long as your brake pedal doesnt throw the switch your cuise is enabled?
My normal method of adjusting limit switches is to bend them
I know thats not right, but the adjustment has to be mechanical right?
A bolt holding a bracket or a tab that bends?
All guesses.

My switch needs to be adjusted forward. If I put my fut behind the brake pedal, and pull it toward me, I can set the cruise, and it will hold indefinately. If I take my foot away, and hit a bump, it will disengage the cruise.

Is your brake pedal missing a return spring?

No, there is just a little play, maybe 1/4 inch. Just enough to keep the cruise disengaged

Unplug the wires and screw the switch in a bit?
