We need to do all the primary checks first using this diagram. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/90220402/rcruise.pdf

  • cruise ECU pin 3 power in park and neutral
  • cruise ECU pin 9 power with the key on
  • cruise ECU pin 16 ground
  • cruise actuator pin 4 ground
  • cruise actuator pin 3 to pin 9 at the cruise ECU. When ohm testing at both of these pressing and releasing the brake pedal should result in open/closed circuit.
  • cruise ECU pin 2 should result in power and no power with the brake pedal applied and released.
  • cruise ECU pin 10 ohm tested to ground. Each cruise button pressed should result in a different reading

More tests https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/90220402/cruisetest.pdf

Hello again Chris here,

  1. I have to assume you were not pleased with my help, because you have not replied or rated the post.
  2. What would you like to do regarding your question now?
  3. Do you still need help? Please reply I want you to get equal to or more than what you paid for.
  4. This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. That can prevent me from being able to post answers to your replies.

Thanks Chris
