Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

I would guess its probably a bad servo. Lets test it.

To check the servo:

1. Check for power on the Dark Blue wire. The engine needs to be running and the cruise switch turned on.

2. Ground the Tan/Red wire and the Green/Red wire. The throttle should snap open. Be ready to remove the jumper wires or cut the ignition.

Hello Wayne, thank you for your prompt reply. Where is the servo located? The vehicle is Drive by wire. There aren't any cables/actuators near throttle body. or the pedal.
thanks.

The servo is connected with a wire. This is an 04, correct?

2004. Durango Limited 4X4 5.7/Hemi.
VIN: 1D8HB58D54F215962
Do you have an illustration for reference?
thanks again
Dodge Mechanic: Wayne Crawford, Shop Owner replied 2 years ago

OK. Sorry. I guessed the wrong engine.

Theres no servo on this one.. its ran through the PCM.

So you say the light comes on.. does it stay on?

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
is it the FCM or PCM? The FCM was replaced as part of the TIPM unit."CRUISE" light in dash will turn on when button on steering wheel is depressed. The button will not activate it though. This button is new.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
edit. the button will not activate/engage the cruise. Just to be clear.
thanks.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
the SET button. this editor keeps removing words I put in greater/less than brackets.
Dodge Mechanic: Wayne Crawford, Shop Owner replied 2 years ago

This is while driving or just sitting still? If its just sitting still try driving it and see if the cruise light stays lit.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
while driving it. you can't SET the cruise if not moving, right?
Just to make sure we understand each other....
scenario:
vehicle is on the freeway cruising at 55.
I press the CRUISE button, the dash light saying CRUISE illuminates.
I then press the SET button, nothing happens. Normally I would feel the pedal pull away from my foot.
Finally, I pull my foot away from gas and the vehicle slows down. The CC did not engage.
Dodge Mechanic: Wayne Crawford, Shop Owner replied 2 years ago

You cant set it.. Im wondering about the cruise light that says its turned on. You can turn on the cruise while sitting still.

Have you checked for any related trouble codes? With a PCM controlled system such as this its always best to look at the trouble codes first. Chances are good there is a code in there that will point you in the right direction.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The vehicle was at the dealership. They diagnosed issue as the TIPM. Which it is not as it has been replaced without fixing the issue. I just took vehicle to local AutoZone to have OBD codes pulled, none.
What is next diagnostic step?
Dodge Mechanic: Wayne Crawford, Shop Owner replied 2 years ago

Checking the codes with a real scan tool. A generic OBD tool is not going to get cruise control related codes. It need a vehicle specific scan tool.

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Dodge Mechanic: Wayne Crawford, Shop Owner replied 2 years ago

What codes did the dealer get out of it?

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It doesnt sound like you are capable of helping me through this forum/site.
Again, the dealer diagnosed as TIPM. I just called them on it and spoke with their shop manager. He said no relates codes were found during their diagnostics, but I can bring it back and resume the $119/hr diagnostic.
Dodge Mechanic: Wayne Crawford, Shop Owner replied 2 years ago

Its not so much unable to help its you dont have the proper tools. If the cruise will not activate there should be codes in there and if not we would need live data from the PCM to figure it out. The problem with a computer controlled cruise such as this is that you dont know what its doing without being able to see the data in the PCM. It doesnt run like the old ones where power and ground is sent over a circuit to control things. Its all sent through a switch with a duty cycle signal to the PCM which then sends a duty cycle signal to change the throttle speed.

I believe were it the style you assumed at first, you'd be capable of guiding me TSing the issue. since it is not, it is beyond the service offered by this website. How do we end this so that I get a refund pls.
No hurt feelings, it's just too complicated a system to diagnose online... as you said.
Dodge Mechanic: Wayne Crawford, Shop Owner replied 2 years ago

I will put it in for a refund. Hope we can help you in the future. Good luck.

Dodge Mechanic: Wayne Crawford, Shop Owner replied 2 years ago
