Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer.com

Jay :

That is not a proper code. The code number should start with a P. I would have the code double checked, then return so I can properly assist you.

Customer :

how about PI446. i was going on memory, just got out the paperwok it says thats the code

Customer :

ooops again code says P1446

Customer :

not I

Jay :

That sounds like a Evap code give me a few to look up that code. Thanks Jay!

Jay :

Yeah, the P1446 is for the vent control valve. That shouldn't keep the cruise control from working.

Jay :

That is the only code you have?

Customer :

well the same tech replaced the evaperative cannister and evap pressure sensor so maybe that code was referring what he did he was not clear. i took it in because of the check engine light came on he scanned and found evap codes so i had them fix that and replaced motor mounts my truck has 160k miles on its been so good to me.

Customer :

like i said the tech said maybe it had something to do with the neurtral control switch.

Customer :

yes thats he only code i have

Jay :

Well, there is a few things that needs to be checked for the cruise control to work properly.

Jay :

First you need to check the Cruise Control switch by the brake petal.

Customer :

ok

Jay :

Then you need to use the scanner to monitor the Electronic Throttle chamber to see if that is working properly since that also controls the Cruise control

Customer :

is the switch a fuse or something? you mean check the switch to make there is no short and functioning properly?

Jay :

Those are the first 2 things I would check first for the cruise control not to work. The ASCD Cancel switch if fails, will not allow the cruise control to set, and won't set any codes. So I would start there.
