Customer Question
Second opinion] Hello, in...

Second opinion] Hello, in my 2011 Avalon , the green "cruise" light comes on but the system will not engage then.

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

I can not do that. when you take off your foot of the gas, the car slows down.

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

I have not checked the fuses yet.

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

I am looking at where to look first

If you choose to have me assist you in the diagnostic process you will need a test light, a meter (possibly)and wiring schematics and other diagnostic reading materials, I will provide those so that I may walk you thru the process. How would you like to proceed?
