Customer Question
I have a 2001...

I have a 2001 Diesel 2500 that the cruise control light come on when the switch is pressed but it can't be set. Secondly, the A/C or heater cannot be set to blow through the dash registers. It will blow hot and cold at the defroster and foot outlets. Thanks John

Mechanic's Assistant: While using the cruise control can you accelerate or decelerate? Have you checked the fuses?

Accelerating and decelerating are not a problem. I don't know where the fuses are. Additionally, why would the cruise light work and not the rest of the system?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 2500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes I am. I have looked for the fuses but none are labeled 'Cruise Control".

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Are the A/C registers somehow linked to the Cruise Cntrl?

The cruise control and HVAC issue is most likely a disconnected or cracked vacuum line from the vacuum pump to the vacuum line going to the fire wall on the area where the heater hoses are. Check and repair those vacuum lines. I am pretty sure that this is the problem.Chris

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
