Cruise control not working, will turn on but not "set".

Cruise control not working...

Cruise control not working, will turn on but not "set". Mechanic says it is the vacuum pump.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuse? What size is your engine?

I have a 2000 G20t, manual transmission. so engine is 2 liter

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '00 Nissan?

Re-read the above, a G20t Infinity

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your G20 yourself? What have you tried so far?

It's at mechanic now, he says it's the ASCD pump, but they don't make them any more.

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

Can it be fixed, or can a ASCD pump from another car be made to work?

Hey there, thanks for the question.If the cruise won’t “set” or flashes then the vacuum pump could be at fault. This was the last year they used the cable throttles and the vacuum pumps, but a used one from a salvage yard or eBay seller would suffice.

the G20 is rare around here, can a vacuum pump from another car fit? If so, what cars, other nissans?
