Hello, my name is***** sounds like your cruise control servo may be the problem. At servo verify black wire has ground, tan/orange wire should have power, light blue/pink should have power, light green should not have power, light blue/yellow should not have ground, dark green/orange wire at servo should get power when pressing ON button for cruise and it should have a different voltage reading when pressing the set button. If all are good replace the servo, here is a wiring diagram to help with testing. Let me know if you have more questions or if there is anything else I can do to help. Thanks.

Dan,I was doing the test procedure incorrectly. I was able to go through the test procedure, and I got 3 flashes. This is supposed to indicate a bad deactivation switch. I installed a new switch and am getting the same code.I’m a little confused about the switch. When I test it with a multimeter, it shows closed (zero resistance) whether the plunger is depressed or not. This is the same for the original switch and the new switch.What’s my next step?Thanks,Barry Hale

Check to see if red/white wire has voltage, if not check fuse 27. Let me know, thanks.

Red/white wire is showing about 1.2 volts.

It should have battery voltage. Remove/reinsert fuse a few times incase it has a poor connection. If not verify fuse has 12v if so the red/white wire is damaged somewhere so you will need to follow wire to find damage or run a new wire between fuse and switch. Let me know how it goes or if you have more questions, thanks.
