Hi Guys,

I have an '08 G5 Automatic 4 cylinder. the cruise control stopped working last month and it does not say cuise engaged when I try to set it. I checked the manual but could not figure out if there is a fuse for it that might have blown. Does anybody know if there is one, or possibly what might be wrong? The car only has 17,000 KM on it so I'm surprised it stopped working so soon.

since you have a n auto maybe shake the shifter a bit or pull up on the brake pedal. while trying. or take it to the dealer.

I am gonna go out on a limb and guess you are form calgary? LOL

Did you have any trouble codes happen? Sometimes cruise gets disabled due to a problem occurring in the vehicle (My Friend's Subaru does this).

Or have you had the ECU reflashed/replaced at any point? If so, it could have gotten disabled in the config.

Since your car is well within the warranty, I'd say just throw it at them and let them figure it out.

Did you check your cruise control fluid level?
Hmm... possible.

And while he's checking that, he might as well check to see if the Turbo Encabulator is also functional.

I haven't flashed the ECU at all. How do you check the trouble codes?

I'll probably call the dealer soon.

oh and the Cruise Control Fluid level is fine. ;)
Usually if there is a Check Engine light, it'll throw a code. I'm not sure if Canadian tire does free code reading like Autozone down here does.

Or you could put 3 Vietnamese ones in your trunk for free.
And spend $75 dollars on slush mats for my Jeepeh ;)
Yeah, but driving the G5 into the river would put me 15 grand in the hole, eh? The optional insurance on the U-Haul is much cheaper ;).

My G5 did this, and I have a manual. I didnt have time to take it in to the stealership, but after a couple weeks, it just magically started working, strangely on the same day that my console started opening again after it was stuck closed :D

I know this is reviving an old thread, but I thought this could be useful as it took me some searching through other forums and youtube to get to my solution, at least. My cruise control also randomly stopped working, The orange light would say that CC is on, but nothing would set.

I figured out that the 3rd brake light (CHMSL) had all 3 bulbs burnt out, and because of this, the whole CC system wouldn't enable, but as soon as I replaced the bulbs, the cruise control system returned to working correctly.
