Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

I'm assuming that your cruise control does not work. There are many possible cause for cruise not working and it will require some testing to determine exactly what is wrong. The problem may be with wiring or there may be another issue seemingly unrelated to cruise operation but cruise is being inhibited because of it.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to use a scan tool to see if any fault codes have set. Have you checked for codes?
