Honda Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, I would love to help you with any Honda or automotive questions.
when you say he replaced the cruise controle switch do you mean the brake switch
also called brake/cruise switch
I mean the switch that is located on the dash on the left of the steering wheel that actually turns on the cruise control
ok that switch does not have a reputation for going bad, the stop/cruise switch located on the brake petal
fails very often and causes many cruise problems
let me find a photo
I am in the process of contacting my mechanic right now to double check to see if he even considered this fact. I will be in contact with you in a minute
My mechanic says that they checked this switch and that it was working when they checked it, however could it show that it works at times and then still causes the problem at some other time
that sounds like a mechanic that is covering his a** this part fails very often and cost under $20 bucks and under an 1 hour of install time. It would of been the first place I would of looked. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.2carpros.com/forum/automotive_pictures/192750_BrakePedalFreePlay95Accordfig02_1.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.2carpros.com/questions/honda-accord-1995-honda-accord-brakes-keep-locking-up&h=30 0&w=284&sz=14&tbnid=WY11uwYM0X36RM:&tbnh=231&tbnw=218&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dhonda%2Baccord%2Bbrake%2Bswitch%2Bphoto&zoom=1&q=honda+accord+brake+switch+photo&usg=__cdpaWpkInVOmR47k2q1raknNIlQ=&sa=X&ei=csQcTZPMFMSpngei1s2LDg&ved=0CBoQ9QEwAA
the link is a photo of an accord switch but it is in the same place on yours
your CRV thinks you are pushing on the brakes, the switch might be out of adjustment or more often it is failing
I am having my mechanic replace this switch, thank you so much for your input in this matter. You could be correct in your statement as I am a worman and it seems that this happens a lot when women take a vehicle in for repairs.
no problem I am a 13 year Honda mechanic and I think this should solve your problems
anything else I can answer for you today?
no but thanks so much for the help I have been given
