Im trying to fix my cruse control in my Nissan Frontier

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Nissan. The Nissan Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

Well it worked just fine a week ago, and now it just stopped working. When I push the button, the light comes on but it wont set to a speed

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Well I want to first see if its something I can fix myself or if I have to take it in to a shop

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Nissan Mechanic should be aware of about your Nissan?

No everything else works fine

The cruise control turns on correct? It just won't set?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
it goes on but won't set
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

First thing I would check is the cruise control cancel switch. This is a switch down by the brake pedal by the brake switch. This is what detects the brake pedal is being pressed to cancel the cruise control when it does set. When the switch is bad, it won't set. So I would check this switch first. It's actually a cheap part. It's like 30 bucks. So I would start by saying I would replace that switch and then see if the cruise control operates.

Do you want me to keep this question open till you can perform this to let me know the out come?

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
